Today’s Steve Jobs National Enquirer story paints a dire picture. In fact, the Steve Jobs National Enquirer diagnosis gives the ailing Apple mastermind six weeks to live. In addition, Radar Online alleges that he has been getting treatment at the Stanford Cancer Center for his ailment, which is another ominous sign. Jobs has defeated pancreatic cancer before, but if it has come back, it may put him in dire straits. Yet the National Enquirer headline may still be too sensational for many to believe.
The tabloid also has pictures of the Apple CEO coming out of the clinic, which show him as “painfully frail and weak.” However, he is well enough to have a meeting with President Obama today, along with other Silicon Valley leaders.
Although the story hasn’t been published yet, Radar Online got the early scoop. They point out that the Stanford Cancer Center is where Patrick Swayze sought “radical chemotherapy” before his death from pancreatic cancer. As such, it paints a picture in which the Apple head is at the end of his rope.
When he took a leave of absence from Apple, Jobs didn’t say what he was suffering from. Therefore, it is easy for some to assume the worst, and assumptions are what the tabloid is going on. Their “six weeks to live” diagnosis comes from doctors Gabe Mirkin and Samuel Jacobson, who based their predictions only on the photos.
This National Enquirer bombshell comes just a day after their last issue alleged that O.J. Simpson was beaten in prison. When that came out, Simpson was said to have laughed it off as his way of denying it. But the implications are a little bit more dire with this rumor, and are harder to just laugh off.
The photos for this story just show Jobs from the back, although it may still look enough like him. Whether it is him or not, the subject looks rather thin – at least thin enough to make doctors think he has under two months to live.
But since the diagnosis is only based on sight, and not on any medical tests, it is harder to believe. For all anyone knows, it might be true, but when someone says that a person has six weeks to live, there should be more concrete evidence to back up such a dire claim.
At the least, the Steve Jobs rumors add another layer to his meeting with the President today. Tabloids and other news outlets will likely look out for him to see just how well he really is.
