Re: [newtech-1] NYTimes.com fixes paywall URLs

I don't know how anyone could bitch about the NYT.  What could they compare it to?  There has never been a publication that comes close to it's status.  Over 150 years in publication and over 100 Pulitzers.  Maybe globally the London Times might be in the running, but all I know from them is their crossword puzzle, which I don't believe I have ever gotten more than 2 answers correct.  IMO... The NYT gives you top tier journalism more than any other.  Maybe if you are interested in the global financial community or European current events, I'd supplement it with the Financial Times.  Page One was a great documentary on the NYT and it's evolution in the changing media landscape.

As for the pay wall, I had heard of the url change, but just clicking through the day's articles on google news has always allowed me through unfettered.  The only articles that I have had issues getting to are op/ed. But maybe all this is coming to an end.

Thanks, Kate. I'll try that for articles I'd like to read.

And for those who bitch about the New York Times, in my opinion, it's still one of the best news organizations in the world. You may not agree and that's your choice. I happen to think it's pretty stellar, even if they get it wrong sometimes.

Nothing is perfect. You can strive for perfection, but it's unrealistic to think any organization with thousands of employees across the world can achieve it.

Yes, but if you search the article title on Google, it still lets you access it without paying.

Hey everyone,

I noticed the the New York Times has fixed their URLs so one can no longer remove anything after the "?" and refresh to get the article free. Has anyone else noticed this?
