I ask because I know that several well-known and highly reliable news sources, such as The NY Times, Washington Post, and others require a free membership to view articles. I just had an ATSNN submission's voting suspended due to "invalid source" because it required a free membership. The source quoted was the NY Times. Outside of this, it met the guidelines for ATSNN in every way.
