Sex, Lies and Tabloids!
They're lurid, obnoxious, disdainful and explicit. And we love them—and love to hate them. SEX, LIES AND TABLOIDS! charts the rise and fall of tabloid papers, including the New York Post, The Sun, and notorious supermarket tabloids like the National Enquirer and The Star. SEX, LIES AND TABLOIDS! features extensive interviews with key tabloid players, including notorious editor Kelvin MacKenzie, and provides an insider's account of the no-holds-barred mentality driving tabloid journalism while also using fun and campy footage mimicking the style of the tabloids themselves. Today, the heyday of the print tabloids may have passed, but the culture they spawned is everywhere.
Starring Kelvin MacKenzie
