MSNBC Reports $300K to Palin for Baby Pics

Bristol Palin appears to have benefited from the arrest of her possible future mother-in-law. After the arrest of the mother of the alleged father of Bristol's soon-to-arrive son occurred, MSNBC reports that the first baby pictures immediately became more valuable:

According to one source, bidding for the baby photos began at $100,000. People won out in the end, but In Touch was the only other weekly to make serious bids, according to several sources involved in the process.

The price didn't soar immediately, according to the sources, because Sarah Palin stories just didn’t sell all that well for the weeklies on newsstands.

“Sarah was on the cover of People, Us Weekly, and OK! the same week, and really only People saw a bump in sales," says a source.

The drug-related arrest of Johnston's mother, however, caused the price tag for the photos to go up.

There is a post on Mudflats now wondering if it is really true that the baby has been born.

They have changed the birth weight, day and time on the announcement at People. First it was Sunday, now it is Saturday. Weight was 7 # 7 now 7 # 4 or the other way around...can't remember for sure...but it has changed. Just strange little things...makes you wonder what is up.
