Newspapers and Book Publishers

How many newspapers do you suppose were sold around the country in 1912, right after the disaster?  Did circulation increase?  Damn right it did!

Now think of all the advertising revenue sold around that spike in circulation, and you start to get the idea.  Someone made a lot of money in the newspaper and magazine biz. 

Who made the most money off the Titanic disaster story in 1912?  Who published books and got book deals right away?
