NYT and WSJ tear down their walls
November 6, 2012
Last week The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal dropped their paywalls during the height of Hurricane Sandy, allowing readers to get the very latest on the deadly storm.
Today they’re doing it again for the presidential election. WSJ.com’s paywall will come down at 5 p.m., while The Times’ will come down at 6 p.m.
Both will remain free for 24 hours as they post the latest in the presidential and other regional and state elections.
It marks only the third time in the history of the Times’ paywall, which went up a year and a half ago, that the paywall has been lowered.
The two others were Sandy, a period that lasted for five days, and during last year’s run-up to Hurricane Irene, another storm that hit New York City hard.
