It’s April 1, and the joke is on us (and them)

On exchange4media, group editor Pradyuman Maheshwari lists the 10 April Fool’s Day headlines he wishes would turn out to be true:

#09: Newspapers up cover price.

Some low circulation newspapers may be exempted from the move. Regional papers to follow suit.

# 01: Times shuts Medianet, no editorial guarantee on Treaties: Although many people who would have otherwise not merited any coverage in Bombay Times/Delhi Times, etc., are very unhappy about it, Times has shut its Medianet division.
