Washington Post's price this morning was a typo

Washington, D.C., media watchdog DCRTV noticed Friday morning that The Washington Post was 25 cents cheaper than usual. Is new owner Jeff Bezos bringing his love of discounting to the print paper?

"Today's paper was an error," Post spokesperson Kris Coratti says via email. I bought a copy at a newsstand at Reagan National Airport this morning, and they didn't give me the 25 cents off. Bogus!
