Tabloid Crams As Much Innuendo As Possible Into A-Rod’s Helicopter Ride

Instead of just blandly reporting that Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez celebrated hitting his 600th homer by taking a helicopter tour of NYC on Wednesday with Gwyneth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz, the Daily News decided to spice up the story with sex and drug references.

In addition to the teaser headline, “A-Rod’s High-Flying Threesome” on the homepage is this intro: “Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez got high with a couple of blonds after smacking his historic 600th homer.” Scandalous!

Unless of course, the baseball player did have a coke-fueled ménage à trois with two smoking hot actresses on a helicopter while hovering over the city and the paper was holding back.
