NY TImes RSS feeds no longer work

Postby ginahoy » 17 May 2013, 22:20

Does anyone subscribe to any of the NY TImes feeds? As of this week, I'm no longer able to open articles from any of their feeds. The URL for individual articles always gets translated to "http://rss.nytimes.com/services/xml/rss/nyt/" which is a dead page.

I know the Times has been getting more aggressive with their paywall. But AFAIK, articles accessed via RSS readers should still be accessible. I verified the feeds continue to work in Google Reader. So how can GR serve up the correct URL, while TT-RSS does not?

Here's an example of an article served up by GR:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/18/us/po ... ss&emc=rss

Here's the feed this article came from if someone would care to test:

http://rss.nytimes.com/services/xml/rss/nyt/US.xml
