In an email to the campus community Saturday afternoon, a mysterious sender named “Yale Daily News” claimed that the News would begin charging for its content. The emailer also claimed that, starting Jan. 16, online readers would only have access to 10 articles per month until they needed to purchase a subscription, and that papers would no longer be stocked in Linsly-Chittenden and Commons.
The email was false. While we are flattered by the attention and were briefly excited at the prospect of being paid for our work, our content is and always will be yours to enjoy, free of charge. Papers will be in Commons and Linsly-Chittenden Hall on Tuesday and there will be no digital paywall. Keep on reading, Yale. It’s on us.
