Thirty years before the antics of Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, Joyce McKinney made her mark as a peerless tabloid queen. In Tabloid, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Errol Morris follows the salacious adventures of this beauty queen with an IQ of 168, whose single-minded devotion to the man of her dreams leads her on a labyrinthine crusade for love.

Paulington James Christensen III recently caught up with Errol Morris to chat about this crazy real-life adventure, as well as get schooled in the art of professional journalism.
