Media Notes: Glens Falls Post Star ads paywall, Almanack gets new look, new paddling film

A few media notes for this Tuesday afternoon.  First is news that readers of the Glens Falls Post Star will, after today, be limited to fifteen free reads per month (CORRECTED).  After that, you’ll have to subscribe.

Meanwhile, the Adirondack Almanack — in its new partnership with the Explorer —  has a brand new look.

There’s a big new film from Mike Lynch, outdoor writer for the Adirondack Daily Enterprise about the Northern Forest Canoe Trail.

Also, the Saranac Lake based political cartoonist Marquil is now being featured in Newsday.

  1. And don’t forget the Post-Star’s outrageous war to make people’s private email addresses into public information.

    If you reset your browser’s search history and clear the cache after your 15 free articles, the paywall won’t recognize you the next time you visit the newspaper. I’ve been doing this ever since the NYTimes installed their paywall.

    I know it’s wrong, but I don’t have the money to subscribe to all these papers. I generally start in the City and work my way up and around the state, just to see what’s happening in all parts of New York. Several small papers have set up paywalls recently, like the Press-Sun Bulletin in Binghamton.

    Some people will subscribe, but most will just ignore the papers that charge.

    The papers should charge. This was not an issue until the Internet came along.
    People like to steal if they think they can get away with it. The same thing is true here at NCPR. How many people listen regularly but never contribute?
