Star Magazine Puts Katie Holmes Apology on the Cover

Interesting bit of synchronicity for trailblazing media watchdog GossipCop.com. The same week that TV Guide Network announced it is developing a new show based on the outlet, Star magazine has been forced to issue a major apology (and charity donation) to actress Katie Holmes, for a story first debunked by the website. On the cover of the January 20th issue, Star equated her fondness for Church of Scientology e-meter treatments to a serious drug addiction.

Certainly, Star and its glossy ilk get stuff wrong all the time. But it’s not every newsstand-day that a $50 million (now settled) lawsuit forces one of these mags to eat celebrity crow by teasing a subsequent apology on the very same cover. In bold white letters across the top of this week’s issue, the American Media publication declares: “Star Apologizes to Katie Holmes – Inside”

When GossipCop first arraigned the Star cover story (“Addiction Nightmare — Katie Drug Shocker!”), it suggested that the entire magazine’s staff might benefit from “intense reporting rehab.”
