The New York Evening Enquirer was a Sunday afternoon newspaper distributed throughout the city. It was founded by anti-Semite[1] William Griffin in 1926 and became a voice for isolationism and National Socialist propaganda in the 1930s and 1940s. The paper was indicted along with Griffin for sedition by a grand jury in 1942. In 1952 the paper’s circulation fell to 17,000 copies a week and it was purchased Generoso Pope, Jr. who turned the paper into a sensational scandal sheet focusing on sex and violence. In 1966 the paper's name was changed to The National Enquirer which is the popular supermarket tabloid known today.
