  • DPO paywall

    So looks like Denver Post put up a pay wall which limits you to X amount of articles then locks you out until you sign up. I'm fine for them getting paid for their content, it's only 99 cents, but when I go to try and sign up, it's just busted.

    Anyone else have the same issue? Is there any way to get those articles? I don't mind paying, but it seems like the system is broken.

    I've heard if you use the inprivate browser in IE or incognito in chrome , no more paywall

            Here's a question: If newspapers weren't part of the media, would all these people people be wringing their hands over the death of News Papers?

              Don't do that. Just pay the damn dollar. Support your local beat writers. Who uses IE anymore?

                All the private modes work because they dump the cookies from that session after you close it.

                  What're you trying to ask here? The entire media industry is in a sort of flux right now. The web has created a Wild West market for media and because so many "writers" are perfectly content to offer up their "journalism" for free, it's created a situation where no model exists for digital sustainability, financially speaking. I've been in the newspaper industry for the past decade and I can tell you that newspapers can still be run at an insane profit if run correctly. The last paper I worked for before coming to the DP was in shambles just 6 years ago. They're now making money hand over fist and the toast of the Gannett corporation. The Denver Post has a long way to go to make up for the many internal mistakes that were made over the past 8 years but I assure you, they won't be going anywhere anytime soon.

                      I subscribe to the Sunday paper delivery because I still really enjoy reading the paper with a cup of coffee on the weekends, and the digital portion is free along with that subscription.
