Globe is a supermarket tabloid first published in North America on November 10, 1954, in Montreal, Quebec. Over time the Globe became the prime competitor with the National Enquirer, which publishes similar content. However, the Globe publishes even more outrageous stories than the Enquirer.

The Globe is owned by the Hudson Group, which bought them and the National Enquirer from American Media in 2019. Advertising, subscriptions, and newsstand sales generate revenue.
Analysis / Bias
The Globe Magazine publishes sensationalized gossip stories, with many being just plain fake and almost always unproven. The Globe is not a credible media source and should be consumed for entertainment purposes only.
Globe Magazine does cover politics and does not care what party as long as it is sensational.
Failed Fact Checks
- Most of the stories are not true.
Overall, we rate The Globe Magazine Questionable and very low in factual reporting due to sensationalism and the publication of outright fake news. (D. Van Zandt 7/15/2017) Updated (7/7/2021)
