You can use your dc library card to read it as well with a 7 day pass.

Does the 7 day pass reset or is that a lifetime 7 day pass?

…it’s a 7-day pass. It lasts 7 days before you reset it.

That’s literally what I asked. Does it reset or is it a one time for life 7 day pass for that library card #. I just signed up and have no idea how it works. But thanks for your smart response …

Maryland libraries have the same subscription service. Patrons can access at least WaPo, NYTimes, and WSJ, and I think others. Stop by the library and ask, or just go online to your library account and dig around for the link.

With a MoCo library card, you can get DC, Frederick, and PG County library cards. With a DC card (and maybe a MoCo one), you can get an Arlington County library card.

Another easy way to get around the paywall is to support journalism and pay for the Post. Those articles you want to read for free aren’t free to create.

I like BBC news better since they show less bias.


TheDeHymenizer t1_j8zowj5 wrote

BBC isn't bad. People hate to admit it but pretty much all American media is just Fox News is different flavors now.

I like reading both BBC News and RT News in order to get multiple points of view. RT news is super biased, but some of their articles about the US provide a good point of view if you verify it with other sources

I wonder what /u/washingtonpost has to say about this.


washingtonpost t1_j8znjtv wrote

i mean, people sometimes just copy and paste our whole articles on here anyway — all i can say is if you enjoy reading our work, please subscribe if you’re able to!

across the site we try to give some excerpts of stories from behind the paywall — and even offer 7 free articles to redditors specifically, along with AMAs every other week — to give non-subscribers a way in to seeing our work without running into a paywall right off the bat.

but subscriptions are important to keep a newsroom going, and we can only do our jobs because of reader support. but uhh personally i def can’t stop … this. i’m just the reddit guy

I read the Washington Post online with a free subscription as a fed. Is any revenue generated by that beyond ad views?


TheDeHymenizer t1_j8znfhk wrote then add the hyperlink

you have to wait until someone archives the article but I find with major outlets like WaPo, NYT you can generally read anything within an hour or so of its publishing
