BostonGlobe.com, other sites drop paywalls following Boston Marathon explosions
BostonGlobe.com will be available to nonsubscribers as the news organization continues to cover the explosions in Boston, Globe spokesperson Ellen Clegg said by phone. The home page currently redirects to a live blog about the explosions.
Boston.com, the Globe's free site, will also drop the automatic registration requests readers get after they hit a certain number of pages.
The New York Times' pay gate is suspended, too, Times spokesperson Eileen Murphy says.
The Wall Street Journal's Boston content is free, spokesperson Sara Blask said on Twitter:
PSA: All of our Boston-related content is now free. #BostonMarathon
