The Quibbler is the monthly tabloid of which Luna Lovegood's father, Xenophilius Lovegood, is the editor (OP10). It is renouned for not being reliable and for spreading fantastic rumours, regardless of how absurd they may seem. For instance, Luna mentions that Harry's interview, she says that it might be pushed back until the following issue because her father is printing a long article about sightings of Crumple-Horned Snorkacks.

The magazine is produced in the Lovegoods' home on an old-fashioned printing press; the machine is made of wood and operated by magically-turning cogs and wheels (DH20).

Appearances in Canon

The first time Luna is introduced, she is reading a copy of The Quibbler upside-down.

Harry in The Quibbler

Luna sets up an interview with Harry for The Quibbler (in her fourth year and Harry's fifth), the result being an article that is more factual than any interview the Daily Prophet has printed about him. Subsequently, Dolores Umbridge--currently the High Inquisitor of Hogwarts--issues Educational Decree Number Twenty-seven.

Later, the Prophet reprints The Quibbler''s article about Harry (OP38).

During the Second War, Xeno Lovegood uses The Quibbler to express his support for Harry, stating that every witch or wizard should, if they come across him, help the boy in any way possible. In retribution, Death Eaters kidnap Luna from the Hogwarts Express, threating that they will kill her if Xeno does not stop printing positive news about Harry. Desperate to ensure his daughter's safety, Xeno follows the lead set forth by the Daily Prophet, using The Quibbler to denounce Harry as Undesirable Number One and to offer a reward for his capture. This is what he is printing--and quick to hide--when Harry, Ron, and Hermione visit him (DH21).

After the end of the war, it returned to its usual condition of advanced lunacy, and resumed being appreciated for its unintentional humour (BLC).
