Worst Exclusive Ever


About 75% of the time, tabloids and their brethren overuse the word exclusive. The word should be reserved for something really good. If you have pictures of Michael Jackson having sex with a donkey, that is an exclusive. Apparently over at US Weekly that exclusive tag has a very very low threshold. In their online edition, this is their headline: Exclusive: Stylist: Why Drew Barrymore Dyed Her Hair Red

Unless the reason is because Drew started a new religion or has a Mick Hucknall obsession that has gone too far, than there really is no need for the story, let alone an exclusive. Want to know the reason? Oh, it's a doozy. "Drew just felt like trying out red, and it looks great on her -- she loves it!"

She felt like trying it. This just in. Exclusive: In-N-Out Cashier: Why Enty Ate A 3X3 Animal Style. The reason? He wanted to try it and he loved it.

Seriously, this has got to be the worst exclusive in the history of exclusives.

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE NEWS
Whatever 'exclusive' report you have in the internet age, is only exclusive for about 8 minutes, max.
