I was shocked. Today I got up extremely early to hit the newstands and was not too impressed with the covers, however, I found the best print ever of Amsterdam News. I have NEVER bought a copy in my life until today. The cover is a very glossy Obama. Just spectacular. I got about 8 copies to give to friends. What a day!

Subscribership for the NYT will continue to plummet because of their complete lack of objectivity. What a worthless rag.

Though,the result which is already known by everyone with the aid of different electronic media concern,yet they all, would need more informations in abundantly.Such flooded informations in diverse taking with the election and Barack Obama,can only be provided by the newspapers. So,the newspapers of different concerns will be demanded by each news hungry reader.Every newspaper concern would be able to boost its sale definitely today in high. Particularly,big newspaper house like the The Newyork Times,Washington Post will experience huge demands for their papers today at least. Obama is today’s hot news,which is attractive as well as supportative to every newspaper to grab their crazy readers.

They’ll print up new copies of any issue within the last 90 days and mail it to you. Sure beats waiting around to beg your paper delivery person…

Both papers, The Daily Press and The Virginian Pilot had to print an additional 15,000 copies to restock the stores that had run out. What an awesome day this is for newspapers around the nation!!
