Surprise! AMI’s ‘Space Force’ Magazine Is Bullshit
The National Enquirer’s sister magazine misreads history to craft a narrative in which Republicans are space-faring heroes and Democrats are earthbound villains.
President Donald Trump’s much-ballyhooed “space force” is little more than a costly new bureaucracy that adds no new technology, personnel, or missions to the Pentagon's existing infrastructure for space.
But according to American Media, Inc., the parent company of The National Enquirer, the space force is an elite crew of laser-wielding Republican ass-kickers on a mission to conquer Mars and kill aliens.
AMI’s Space Force magazine, a glossy, 96-page, one-off special that's on sale at newsstands for $15 until April 5, is pure, naked propaganda, misrepresenting Trump’s space force, where it came from, and what its purported goals are.
