Tariffs are slamming newspapers with higher costs.

The LaGrange Daily News, a small paper in Georgia, said last week that it will start printing five editions per week instead of six, partly because of "rapid increases in newsprint costs." "What we're being charged now to print our newspaper is more than it was four months ago, is more than it was eight months ago. That's a direct correlation, obviously, with the tariffs," said Baker Ellis, the president and publisher of the Daily News. He also runs another paper, the Valley Times-News, in neighboring Alabama. Both are part of the Boone Newspapers chain. The tariffs were handed down by an administration that has taken a tough stance on trade. President Donald Trump has accused America's trading partners of hurting economic growth in the United States through unfair practices. But the paper tariffs are also unusual because they were advocated by one small company in Washington state called Northern Pacific Paper, or Norpac. The company employs a few hundred workers and is owned by One Rock Capital, a private equity firm in New York. After the Commerce Department finalized its tariffs earlier this month, Norpac praised the decision and urged the International Trade Commission to make the duties permanent. CEO Craig Anneberg said in a statement at the time that the tariffs allowed Norpac to restart an idled paper machine and hire 60 workers, with another 40 jobs to fill. A Norpac spokesman said the company expected to have more to say once the commission votes Wednesday.
