The day the circus came to town

1857 photo of the mysterious circus tent


The National Reporter
In the early morning hours of August 1857, the town of New Madrid, Missouri was visited by a small unknown circus.
The people of New Madrid naturally welcomed the small circus and eagerly anticipated the show as they set up their operation on the outskirts of town.
By the end of the day the circus was open for business and the excited locals began arriving.
In no time at all the big top was filled to capacity which much to their displeasure, left a few hundred New Madridians outside waiting for the next show.
The sounds of the ring leader shouting through his megaphone, the performers, the music and all the wild animals echoed out across the big field where the circus had set up their big tent.
And then just as the show was about to end, there was silence.
The ring master, the crowds and the howling animals had all suddenly become hushed.
After a few minutes some of the towns folk walked towards the front entrance to the tent and pulled aside the enclosure to peer inside.
They were greeted by an eerie sight.
There was no one inside.
It was completely empty.
Over four hundred towns people, performers and animals had disappeared off of the face of the Earth on that warm August evening in 1857.

The site was closed down and investigated by the finest detectives of the day looking for a clue as to where all those people disappeared to, but they never found anything.
To this day scientists are still scouring the Earth with ground sounding devices looking for underground caves and secret trap doors.
So far there has been no trace of any such underground caverns that could have been used to spirit so many people away unseen by the hundreds waiting outside of the big tent.
All that remains on the location is a plaque dedicated to the missing.
The bizarre occurence is still one of the most puzzling missing persons mystery in the U.S. to this day.

iCarly’s Mischievous poltergeist returns with obscene prank

iCarly is a popular television series on Nickelodeon


The National Reporter
On August 2nd 2010, The National Reporter released video footage of an apparition appearing on the set of Nickelodeon’s iCarly series during filming.

Ghost haunts iCarly set

Since that video was released The National Reporter has received thousands of e-mails and telephone calls from concerned fans of the show.
Because of the massive public interest, The National Reporter has kept a close watch on the notoriously haunted set#7 at Nickelodeons Burbank studios where the series is taped.
During the taping of the latest episode entitled, ‘iSams mom’ the cast complained about an uneasy feeling they were having.
All of them were experiencing odd sensations.
“I had this weird feeling,.. like,.. there was someone standing right in front of me with their face just inches from mine.” Miranda Cosgrove, who plays Carly said. “It’s hard to explain, it was just totally weird.”
Jennette McCurdy who plays Sam said that she was suddenly engulfed in freezing cold air in a hallway as she walked to the set.
“It was as if that small space, about five feet long was below zero.” She said. “I could see my breath. It scared the heck out of me.”

It wasn’t just the cast who sensed a paranormal presence on the iCarly set.
The crew was also picking up on unusual occurrences as they worked.
“It felt like my body was being taken over and I was doing things, strange things, things that I wouldn’t ordinarily do.” One of the stage hands told us.
“It felt like I was asleep and I was dreaming that I was working. It was really bizarre.” One of the electricians said.

At the end of the show when Spencer, played by actor Jerry Trainor, pried off the apartment number from Freddie’s apartment and held it up, the work of the mischievous poltergeist came into full light.
unfortunately it was too late to stop it and the obscene image was aired across America in full view of millions of young fans.

Close up of the poltergeist sick perverted sense of humor

As you can see the apartment address has been altered by the poltergeist.
Instead of 8D as an apartment number would be written normally, the mischievous ghost made a small change and added an equal sign turning it into 8=D.
Anyone who is familiar with internet abbreviations will recognise this immediately as the symbol for a penis.
When The National Reporter located the stage hand who was responsible for making the number, he told us that while he was making it he knew it was wrong, but it was like his body was taken over and he couldn’t stop.
After he had placed the number on the wall next to Freddie’s apartment door, he forgot all about it.
“It was weird.” He said. “I had absolutely no recollection of making the number or putting it up until after the show aired and everyone saw it.”
This new revelation of the vulgar nature of iCarly’s poltergeist is very disturbing.
Perhaps it is time for the producers to relocate to another studio or call an exorcist.

Ghost captured on video during filming of iCarly episode.

The National Reporter
Cast members of the popular iCarly television series got quite a shock during the filming of their most recent episode entitled, “iGot a Hot Room!”
During one of many takes where Carly Shay, Played by actress Miranda Cosgrove, was supposed to run up stairs to her room and change her jacket, the cameras picked up a strange disturbance behind fellow actor, Jerry Trainor.
The National Reporter interviewed the cast late last week to get their thoughts on the paranormal occurance.
“I did feel a slight drop in temperature while we were taping that scene, especially right when that thing appeared.” Jerry Trainor told us. “I also had a weird feeling that somone was standing behind even though I knew no one there.”
Jerry Trainor plays Carlys older brother, Spencer, on the show.
“I never really believed any of this ghost stuff until I saw the footage, is this for real?” Actress Jennette McCurdy said. “This is really creepy, I’m kind of scared to be here now.”
“I know what you mean.” Miranda Cosgrove added. “Just the idea that there might be a ghost here makes my skin crawl.”
Nathan Kress, who plays Freddie Benson, seemed to be amused at his co-stars frightened reactions to the video.

The cast of iCarly from left to right; Jennette McCurdy, Miranda Cosgrove, Jerry Trainor and Nathan Kress.

“There isn’t anything to be scared about.” He said. “Even if there really is a ghost haunting the place what is it going to do? A ghost can’t hurt you any more than a shadow can hurt you.”
As the cast members discussed Nathans theory on what possible injurys one might incur as a result of being assaulted by a ghost, the head of Nickelodeon studios walked in and stomped over to Dan Schneider, the producer of iCarly.
He seemed angry.
I could hear him sputtering angrily about firing the “treasonous bastard” who leaked the ghost story to the press.
The person who sold the video footage to The National Reporter need not worry about their identity being revealed because The National Reporter is a responsible and highly respected news service whose integrity is above reproach.
This is why we consistantly win the prestigious “seal of Honesty” from the International Reporters Association which we proudly display at the right of this page.
Our #1 goal is bringing top quality news storys to the public on issues that the mainstream press is afraid to report.

Update 8/6/2010: After this footage first aired on The National Reporter website and on our youtube page, several people have come forward claiming that they have seen mysterious occurances in different scenes from iCarly episodes.
It wasn’t until The National Reporter first aired this ghost footage on 8/2/2010 that they realised that they may have been witnessing actual paranormal activity occuring on the set during filming that the cast and crew were unaware of.
We here at The National Reporter will do our best to keep our readers updated on any events concerning the haunting of the iCarly set.

The National Reporter captures ghost on video!

The National Reporter
In the first week of May 2010, The National Reporter invited a team of paranormal investigators to accompany us to an abandoned farmhouse located in the outskirts of Windber Pennsylvania.
We had received a communication from a long time reader informing us that he knew of a house in nearby Windber that he swears was haunted.
He described his experiance at the house when he and his friends drove out there late one night during his teen years.
It was an experiance that he never forgot.
After viewing this video we are sure that even the most hard core sceptic will think twice about whether or not ghosts exist.

Sleazy tabloid plagiarizes story from The National Reporter!

The Global Tabloids Feb. 10, 2010 is out right theft of The National Reporter's Dec. 7th, 2009 article.

The National Reporter

The lowlife sleazy scum who run The Global Tabloid have once again shown their inability and unwillingness to report the truth with the same honesty and integrity as the dedicated men and women at The National Reporter who work tirelessly to bring our readers the truth.
They have plagiarized our exclusive story about the very first authentic photograph taken of legendary Jersey devil that The National Reporter showed to the world on December 7th, 2009. two months prior to The Global Tabloids theft of our story.

Read the original Story here.
The Jersey devil captured on film!

As soon as The Global Tabloid’s rag hit the stands this morning, our readers began swamping our phones with complaints.
Many of them are experienced lawyers who have offered to sue The Global Tabloid for plagiarism on our behalf, but we had to decline their generous offer.
The National Reporter has a legal staff who are experts on plagiarism cases.
What upset us is the fact that so many people are going to buy The Global tabloid and believe that they were the first news service to break the story.
What really made us angry was the bogus images they used which we will examine right now.

In the first photo which was also used on the cover, we see what is supposed to be the Jersey devil standing in front of an old abandoned house in the woods.
This looks nothing at all like the real Jersey devil, which of course can be proven very easily by comparing it to the genuine photograph taken by Dave Morrison.
Anyone can see that this is an actor wearing a pair of phony bat wings.

Cover photo. Anyone can see that this is obviously an actor.


In the second photograph we see the same actor standing behind a fence in a menacing stance.
This is the photograph that necessitated the disclaimer on the front page warning the readers that it was so frightening that viewing it can make them to throw up.

According to the Global Tabloid's warning, this image is so scary that it can make you throw up.


After close examination of these photographs The National Reporter has concluded without a shadow of a doubt that they are not the Jersey devil, they are fake.
With that in mind, the public has to come to the realisation that there are unscrupulous news agencys out there who will lie, plagiarize and fabricate ridiculous storys for their own selfish reasons.
They don’t care if their storys cause the public to panic, that is not their concern.
Their only concern is how much money they can squeeze out of John Q. Public.
And it isn’t just the seedy news reporters who make this junk up, there are also the every day ordinary people who get involved with them to make money as well.
We decided to track down the actor who played the Jersey devil for The Global Tabloid to find out who he is and why he sold out to that sleeze rag.
It didn’t take us very long thanks to The National Reporters face identification machine.
We scanned the face of the actor in the fake Jersey devil images and within a few minutes the owner of said face was identified.
It was none other than former Happy days star, Henry Winkler.
According to people who know him, this is just the sort of thing that he would do.
Apparently he thought lying to millions of people and helping a sleazy paper like the Global Tabloid would be a fun way to spend his weekend.

Aaaaaayyyy,... the fonz had fun making a few bucks fooling all you idiots who read The Global Tabloid!

And now to show our readers what real reporting is all about, we have for you an exclusive photograph taken by an army private stationed at Fort Dix NJ, which is located inside the pine barrens.
There are only two genuine photographs of the Jersey devil in existance and The National Reporter has been given exclusive rights to both of them.
Don’t fall for any sleazy tabloid who says they have photographs of the Jersey devil.

Photograph of the Jersey devil hiding in the ruins of an old house inside of the pine barrens. This photograph was taken by an Army private from nearby Fort Dix who wishes to remain anonymous.

Fort Dix Army private who took the photograph seen here stealing a television set from recreation hall. His face has been blacked out to protect his identity.

Confirmed! NYC streets are haunted by the spirits of horses

Horses circa 1800's

NYC Fire horses circa 1850

The National Reporter
Before the advent of the automobile, the streets in our large city’s were teaming with horses hauling cargo and passengers.
In those days horses frequently lost their lives due to accidents, over work, heat and exhaustion.
The death toll among these noble beasts of burden was frightening.
It is said that there is not one inch of NY city streets that had not been the scene of death for some unfortunate horse.
When you consider the thousands of miles of streets in NYC, that is an incredible number of horses.
Paranormal researchers have been investigating reports from local residents who claimed to have seen ghostly apparitions of horses walking the streets.
The National Reporter asked one of these witnesses to describe what he saw last summer on a hot calm July night around 3:00am.
“I couldn’t sleep because of the heat, so I went out on the stoop to smoke a cigarette.” He said. “As I sat there I could swear there was something big moving along the street right in front of me.
It was the damnedest thing, I could just barely make out the shape.
But from what I could tell,..it was a horse.”

Other witnesses have similar story’s of barely visible horses walking past them on the streets late at night, some have even claimed to have seen their ghostly outlines in broad daylight.
But whether or not any of these story’s are true can not be verified nor should they be considered absolute proof that such things exist.
The National Reporter Contacted the Canadian Academy of Paranormal Research and Investigation ( CAPRI ) and invited them to investigate the strange occurences on the streets of NYC.

On their very first day they made remarkable findings with their special ultra violet paranormal imaging cameras.
In broad daylight they were able to capture the image of a ghost horse walking through a group of bicyclists and joggers.
The people on the street were completely oblivious to its presence.

Ghost horse shit through special ghost lens

In this enhanced photograph, a Ghost horse can be seen walking right through a group of NYC residents out for their daily exercise. CAPRI technician Gus Fowler in Tyvek suit scanning ghost horse manure in foreground.

When the image was take, CAPRI technician Gus Fowler said he had detected a strong presence of ghostly residue right in front of him.
His hand-held ectoplasmic microspore monitor was clicking like crazy he said.
Then it went through the roof for some reason, he had no idea why until the film was developed and he saw it for himself.
“Well, I’ll be,.. that’s why my detector went crazy. A horse ghost walked right behind me.” He said.

Over the next few days the CAPRI investigators staked out streets that were very busy in the 1800’s and had a high number of horse deaths.
On their second day they noticed a group of mounted police officers getting ready to ride out to central park for their patrol.
One of the horses was acting nervous and kept swinging its head around looking back.
The officer kept telling his mount to calm down, he had no idea why he was acting so skitterish.
CAPRI quickly snapped two photo’s of the scene.
On normal view and one enhanced by their special equipment.
What they saw when the photo’s were developed was absolutely astonishing.

The police officers horse was being mounted by a ghost horse

The ghost horse was trying desperately to mount the police officers horse.
“I guess instincts from life remain after death, at least they do for horses.” Gus Fowler said.
What was really perplexing to the CAPRI investigators was the large amount of ghostly horse manure piled in the streets.
In some places it was neck-deep.
“It’s a good thing its ghost poo and no one can see it, feel it or smell it.” Camera technician Mary Albright said.
She pointed to a large crowd of people standing on the corner on the other side of the street from us waiting for the light to turn green so they could walk across.
“The horse ghost manure is over their heads right there, it’s about nine feet deep.” She said. “It’s kind of funny because they have no idea.”

Miss Albright swung her camera around and took two quick photo’s of a young lady crossing the street right in front of us.
She turned and smiled when she saw the flash of the camera, although she seemed a bit confused as to why we were chuckling.
There was a rather huge pile of ghost horse manure directly in front of her in the cross walk.
“What’s so funny?” she asked, smiling.
We both smiled back and told her to be carefull where she is walking.
The girl turned around and gazed at the cross walk for a few seconds and shrugged her shoulders.
Then she plodded right through the big pile of manure completely unaware of it.
The pile was so massive it reached her knee’s.

Watch out for that pile!

The young lady had no idea what was so amusing to us as she plodded through the heaping pile of ghost horse manure completely unaware of it.

Over the next few days, CAPRI was able to document the presence of hundreds of ghost horses and massive deposits of the ghostly manure they leave behind.
Although it poses no health threat because it is just ectoplasma, CAPRI felt the need to document it as well.
The ghost horses seemed to prefer one large open area frequented by joggers, pedestrians and bicyclists for some unknown reason.
It was quite a mess, fortunately no one knew about it.

joggers tracking through droppings

This wide open street seemed to be a favorite rest stop for the ghost horses. A ghost horse can be seen on the right side of this enhanced photograph.

The National Reporter stayed on the scene with CAPRI as they snapped hundreds of Photos in this particular area.
“If these people knew what they were walking in there would be a riot.” Gus Fowler said.
Mary Albright laughed out loud when she saw two women joggers sitting right on top of a huge pile of fresh horse ghost manure sipping spring water and talking.
Right behind them no more than three feet away, a ghost horse was busy unloading a seemingly endless stream of urine on the ground.
It was splattering right in the women’s faces and yet they were totally oblivious to it.

If you or anyone you know are interested in this phenomenon,  the CAPRI researchers are still on location and welcome the public to view their research.

Masturbating ghost haunts Boston bank

Boston bank

Hyde Park Savings Bank, the scene of the mysterious haunting


The National Reporter
Boston’s Hyde park savings bank has an eerie visitor every night at midnight.
It is the ghost of a Mexican immigrant who worked as the banks custodian until he suffered a fatal heart attack late one night five years ago.
Official police reports state that he was found in the womens rest room with his clothes off and that he had died of an apparent heart attack while masturbating.
Shocked witnesses say they have seen his ghost wandering the hallways late at night and that he appears to be continuously masturbating.
This reporter staked out the bank late one night a few weeks ago with camera ready.
I wasn’t expecting to see anything since there is no such thing as ghosts.
Around twelve midnight I heard a sound coming from the hallway outside of the ladies room were he had died.
I opened the door very slowly expecting to see a mouse or some other kind of wild creature there, maybe a cat or something.
Or a dog.
To my shock and horror, it was the ghost and he was pounding away like crazy!
I drew my camera up and snapped this photo a split second before he dispeared.
Masturbating ghost

Hey, looky here essay! You want some of this?


When I developed the film and saw that I had captured an image of the ghost it sent a shiver up my back.
It was my first encounter with the paranormal and I will never forget it.
