The National Examiner is a supermarket tabloid owned by American Media, Inc. Like other tabloids, its contents have often come under question, and it has been derided for its sensationalistic writing.

The Examiner has the fewest pages and is the least expensive tabloid in American Media's portfolio; it aims for an older audience. While its sister publications focus on more current content (such as the National Enquirer's focus on celebrity news and Globe's political and culture stories), the Examiner focuses on longer-standing stories; stories involving Loretta Lynn and Elizabeth Taylor have been frequently featured on the Examiner's front page. Also prominently featured among the Examiner's stories are articles on daytime television, usually of dubious quality (for instance, an article on The Price Is Right published a week before the 36th season had begun declared new host Drew Carey a flop and speculated the return of former host Bob Barker).

There is no website for the Examiner.[citation needed]
