Summary: Despite their claim to be an organization that is "dedicated to monitoring and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media", Media Matters used a tabloid article to bash Bush.

In yet another feeble attempt to make something out of nothing, the abomination of an organization Media Matters posted an article citing the Globe tabloid running a cover "story":"BUSH MARRIAGE BREAKUP! EXCLUSIVE! SEPARATE LIVES IN THE WHITE HOUSE."

Media Matters claimed to have posted this item because they hope The New York Times will run the story, although they also stated that they do not endorse the decision by media figures to take their cues from tabloids.

Media Matters also provided bullets to point out the personal problems that the Bush family is supposedly going through, aimlessly bringing attention to a fake tabloid story which no one cares about.
