NY Post Reports on Daily News Price Hike

The Daily News is set to raise its newsstand prices this week — from 75 cents to $1.25 — and The New York Post has some feelings about that.

The front page of today’s Post features a giant sidebar illustration explaining that the News is increasing its prices by 66 percent and a suggestion to “Buck the News! Buy the Post.” There’s also a bandit-like character with a “M” on his belt that is definitely meant to represent Mort Zuckerman, the News’ publisher and owner.

We look forward to the next time the Post raises its price, if only for the Rupert Murdoch cartoon that is sure to be featured on the front of the News.
