Yeah, it is definitely getting more and more pervasive. I finally acquiesced and signed up for a few -- got the NYT deal ($4 every 4 weeks), WaPo $29 for a year, and signed up for a $5 deal for a year of Wired. Although I almost regret the Wired deal because they are now spamming me to sign up after I did sign up. My local newspaper (in a town of 120k) wants $120 a year for their on-line subscription. Which boggles my mind. I'd love to know how many people actually pay for that. Although they do allow a limited number of free articles, I'm not sure how many and how or when it resets..

Not for free, at least.
Advertising doesn't pay for journalism. Especially when everyone is using ad-blockers. Especially when companies like Apple are putting a higher emphasis on privacy and tracking is either disappearing or altering, making individual ads less valuable.

Outline, doesn't work.

Bitly + outline, doesn't work either.

Well, they really don't want me to read their article.

Starting to think Blue should stop linking them altogether if he ( and we happy few feeding him links ) can't find a non-paywall alternative.

I know it's a lot of work already for peanuts as ROI, I don't want to sound ungrateful. Sorry mate.
