Newspaper subscriptions soar as toilet paper shortage continues

Updated: Apr 13, 2020

Nashville, TN - Newspaper executives across the country are celebrating today as first-quarter sales reports show news subscriptions are soaring amid the 2020 toilet paper shortage.

One local executive told The Inquisitor, "While we don't want to take advantage of the current toiletry hardships, we think this may save our industry."

According to sources, home-delivered, print subscriptions are up an average of 900% across the publishers we interviewed. There has been a 2% reduction in digital subscriptions as many readers have reverted to the paper edition.

To thank its customers for their support, many newspapers are including several blank pages in each edition at no extra charge.
