Free* Unlimited access to Washington Post & NYTimes

Several deals here for cheap VPN
So set the VPN to Israel
Clear cookies from browser
You now will have unlimited access to Washington Post & NYTimes on their websites, no limit to the number of articles you can read.

Anti-semitic laden conspiracy theories in 3, 2, 1..........

I suppose Palestinians get free access as well. That might be a reason as those are lefty rags.

Since when does anti-Israel equal anti-semitic??

They can be and are two completely distinct viewpoints.

Works perfectly. Except I can't view recipes!?. Needs a login to get to the recipes and it says I need a subscription although I'm already logged in?. Unless that is under a paywall.

FYI if you are on a site such as the NY Times food section which throws up a popup to block the site, you can go to site settings and turn off javascript and refresh and the popup won't show up again.

In chrome, click the lock icon in the address bar, then Site Settings and go to Javascript and select Block in the dropdown. Obviously not something worth doing ten times a day but it is a handy trick if you want to get a recipe that is otherwise blocked.

Or just install the uBlock Origin extension and you can block JavaScript on specific sites permanently.
