I just saw this on Youtube and managed to read an article in the Washington Post, which I don't subscribe to.

In the url, before the www, you type in "archive.is/". Then just click on the link.

@Mame,
I tried it the first day you posted it and couldn't get it to work...figured I was a klutz and left it at that. But thanks, Mame, it was a nice gesture!

Many newspapers will allow you to read a few articles before hitting the paywall. I open an incognito window and that resets the counter.

@hightor,
You just need to click on an article in a paper you don't subscribe to and then modify the URL.

@engineer,
Good old web browsing whack-a-mole. Works for sites that sniff out ad-blockers too... for now.

Worked for me, just pasted archive.is/ before the www and was able to read the article Razz

@jcboy,
I tried it on both The New York Times and The Washington Post, worked both times.

@jcboy,
Does it first go to a separate search page for you? It does for me, and oddly, one said "no results", but the second one produced a link which did go to a readable version of the link. Both tries were wapo articles.

Either way, thanks Mame for the tip!

@thack45,
Mine went to an archive page and the news article popped right up.
