How can these Magazines publish crazy stories referrencing "sources" that are not true? isn't that illegal?

Here's an example.

Bush Suicide Drama

JUST weeks after leaving the White House, depressed and paranoid George Bush is suicidal, insiders fear. In a blockbuster world exclusive, sources tell GLOBE the ex-President is boozing up a storm - and reveal why he is terrified of Barack Obama and his own wife Laura. Don't miss a single word!

How do they get away with this without getting indicted?

Oh wait..are they like a financial institution?

That makes some sense, if it were the case, but we know it's not.

It really irritates me nonetheless

Well I suppose it could be for the same reason the "net" isn't indicted for all the garbage that's posted on it!!! Ummm...looks like freedom of speech still reigns...for all the "rights' supposedly taken away from us...we still do have this one intact. The internet is NO DIFFERENT than a supermarket tabloid really. post a blog and everyone runs with it...put up a video and it's a "fact" etc. etc. Come up with an "official" looking document and the internet sheeples believe it too. Try it!! It's amazing the filth that people believe!! The net is just as bad as the enquirer or the globe!!
