When I opened my mailbox and found two of the regular weeklies inside, I was a bit surprised to see them bragging in ways only magazines can brag about their "exclusives."
Either way, it's one of my news peeves! I cannot stand when someone brands a story as exclusive when it is, in fact, not solely their story. If you're going to slap words like "exclusive" and "first" all over your story, you'd better be damned sure that no one else has it. Otherwise, you look like fools! Yes, I realize reading these magazines doesn't exactly make me appear to be the most hard-pressed news hound out there, but magazines are one of my guilty pleasures. Get over it.
PS - I have read the stories. You're not missing anything. But I would like to start a pool as to how long the marriage will last. I've seen "Teen Mom" on MTV. I know those relationships don't last a lifetime!
