'''''The Quibbler''''' is a wizarding tabloid published and edited by [[Xenophilius Lovegood]], father of [[Luna Lovegood]], who gets every issue of ''The Quibbler'' when it is published and could be part of the reason behind her odd beliefs. It publishes odd theories and also published [[Rita Skeeter]]'s interview of [[Harry Potter]] on [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]]'s [[Return of the Dark Lord|return]]. Many think that ''The Quibbler'' is rubbish, including [[Hermione Granger]], [[Rita Skeeter]], and [[Dirk Cresswell]]; the latter referred to it as a "lunatic rag" and when Hermione informed Rita that she would be publishing the interview in the Quibbler she looked at Hermione with disdain.

The Quibbler is a wizarding tabloid published and edited by Xenophilius Lovegood, father of Luna Lovegood. Luna gets every issue of The Quibbler when it is published, which could contribute to her often odd beliefs. The Quibbler publishes odd articles, including conspiracy theories and discussions of imaginary creatures; it also published Rita Skeeter's interview of Harry Potter on Lord Voldemort's return. Many think The Quibbler is rubbish, including Hermione Granger, Rita Skeeter, and Dirk Cresswell; the latter referred to it as a "lunatic rag," and when Hermione informed Rita that she would be publishing the interview in the Quibbler, Rita looked at Hermione with disdain.

HistoryEdit

In the early to mid-1990s, The Quibbler published many ridiculous articles, such as those on the supposed existence of the Crumple-Horned Snorkack. In July or August 1995, the magazine published an edition with an article that put forward the theory that Sirius Black was actually the reclusive rock star Stubby Boardman.[1] When Harry Potter read the article on the Hogwarts Express, he found it to be total rubbish. The same issue also had a segment written in Runes which caused the reader to look at the magazine upside down.[1]

Second Wizarding WarEdit

During the height of the Second Wizarding War, when Voldemort took over the Ministry of Magic, The Quibbler was one of the only media outlets to print the truth and publicly support Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.[4] To combat this dissent, the Death Eaters abducted Luna, and held her hostage against Xenophilius's good behaviour in the basement of Malfoy Manor.[5]

The Quibbler turns on Harry.

Due to his daughter's capture, Xenophilus began printing stories advocating the capture of "Undesirable Number One" (Harry), and when Harry, Hermione, and Ron Weasley came to visit his home in the spring of 1998, Xenophilius tried to turn them in to the Ministry (i.e. the Death Eaters) in a desperate attempt to get his daughter back. The trio narrowly escaped, and Xenophilius was imprisoned in Azkaban and his house was blown up because of an Erumpent horn .[5]

Later workEdit

"[The Quibbler] has returned to its usual condition of advanced lunacy, and is appreciated for its unintentional humour."
J. K. Rowling on the Quibbler after the defeat of Voldemort

After Voldemort's defeat, The Quibbler returned to printing its strange theories, possibly including proof of the existence of some creatures discovered by Luna Lovegood, who became a famous wizarding naturalist.

"HARRY POTTER SPEAKS OUT AT LAST: THE TRUTH ABOUT HE-WHO-MUST-NOT-BE-NAMED AND THE NIGHT I SAW HIM RETURN"
—a label in front cover of March 1996 edition of The Quibbler[src]

In an effort to make people believe Harry Potter's story of what happened in the graveyard on the night of Lord Voldemort's return, Hermione Granger arranged for an interview between him and Rita Skeeter to be published in The Quibbler, as the Daily Prophet was painting Harry as either a liar or a nutter, in line with the Ministry's stance that the Dark Lord had not returned.

This turned out to be the best-selling issue of all time. Dolores Umbridge banned the magazine from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in Educational Decree Number Twenty-Seven once this interview was printed, but students found ways to magically hide the magazine and read it anyway, with many of them reading it purely because Umbrige banned it. This caused a surge in the popularity of The Quibbler making it have to reprint. Xenophilius eventually sold the story to the Daily Prophet once the Ministry was forced to admit that Voldemort had returned, and he and Luna used the money to travel to Sweden in search of Crumple-Horned Snorkacks.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • A cover of The Quibbler which lists Harry Potter as "Undesirable No. 1" was created for the film however it does not appear in the final cut of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.
  • The website The-Leaky-Cauldron launched the online version of the Quibbler, all previously published issues can be access via this link.
  • The website theHPfan.com published their own Quibbler articles too, but it is no longer available.
  • To quibble is to avoid or to be vague, so therefore a quibbler is one who avoids or is vague.
  • At The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Dervish and Banges sells authentic Quibbler wallpapers and copies of it with added Spectraspecs.
  • The film version of The Quibbler included a number of advertisements, such as one for a Hairdresser.
  • In the Harry Potter films, The Quibbler sells for one fourth of a Sickle. Exactly how this works in unclear, since one Sickle equals twenty-nine Knuts, which is not divisible by four, and there are no smaller denominations of wizarding currency.
