The Weekly World News was a tabloid published in the United States from 1979 to 2007, renowned for its outlandish cover stories often based on supernatural or paranormal themes and an approach to news that verged on the satirical. Its characteristic black-and-white covers have become pop-culture images widely used in the arts. It ceased publication in August 2007.
In 2009, Weekly World News was relaunched as an online only publication. Its current editor-in-chief is Neil McGinness.
