Newspapers expect a multi-million-dollar windfall in extra sales to people who want a keepsake of Inauguration Day, and publishers are gearing up to make the most of it, Bloomberg reports. The Washington Post is jacking up its price to $2, and the New York Times, USA Today and other publications plan a variety of special editions.
“Every newspaper is getting in on this and they really have to,” said a newspaper industry analyst. “It’s a chance for some quick profits and many are struggling.” People "want to grab onto anything they can," said a spokesman for the Washington Times. "With the election, we couldn’t print enough papers.”
