New York—The New York Times and Wall Street Journal have suspended their online paywalls to let readers get more information about Hurricane Sandy. The storm is expected to slam into the Eastern Seaboard this afternoon.
The Times paywall was taken down Sunday afternoon. A Times spokeswoman told Mashable that visitors will be able to access all content on NYTimes.com until the weather emergency is over. (Times Co. normally allows users access to 10 free articles a month before they are asked to subscribe.)
The Journal's website is “open to all visitors” today, according to a tweet posted by Raju Narisetti, managing editor of The Wall Street Journal Digital Network.
