They aren't the only one seeking to provide access to some of the nation's best journalism at a pivotal moment. The Washington Post announced on its homepage that the paper will take down its paywall, allowing readers to access all of its online content for free on Tuesday and Wednesday.
It's a great way to get up to the minute information about the election as it's happening. Or it's a great way to read all those stories you wanted to read at the end of last month but couldn't because you'd used up all your free articles. Your choice.
The USA Today and its network of sites will also be providing free access on Tuesday and Wednesday. That network extends to many local papers across the country, including the Detroit Free Press, Evansville Courier & Press, the Indy Star, the Lafayette Journal & Courier, the Lansing State Journal, the Muncie Star Press, and the Times Herald, among many others.
