New York Times Gets Another Brick in Its Paywall


With pay walls on the rise across the newspaper industry these days, the New York Times is shoring up it’s famously leaky barrier. On Monday, PaidContent’s Jeff John Roberts noticed that the bookmarklet NYClean, which allows you to “zap” away the barrier that pops up after you hit your 10-story monthly limit, had stopped working. It comes just a month after the paper blocked another popular workaround, saying at the time that it would continue to patch the pay wall’s holes. The digital spackle spreads.
