The National Enquirer tabloid debuted in 1926 as a Sunday afternoon broadsheet newspaper called The New York Evening Enquirer. By the mid-1950s the paper’s circulation had fallen off significantly so new owner Generoso Pope Jr changed the name to The National Enquirer and revamped the format to a sensationalist tabloid focusing on sex, violence and celebrities. Pope is credited with pioneering the idea of selling magazines at supermarket checkouts. Here’s a look at some of our favorite covers from the 60s.
