More often than not, nowadays, clickbait from the much of the world's authoritative newspapers is accompanied by paywalls.

While the amounts in question are often quite minimal, the sheer nuisance of registration, the exposure (do you really want people to know you've subscribed to the Wall St. Journal), and the tediousness of it all prevent most from proceeding to read the story.

A while back I've even wondered if all these paywalls are actually making the conversation more extreme (in the linked idea)

In any case, the idea here is that you subscribe once to a Netflix type service that gets you all the news that's fit to paywall, and regularly updates that list, such that you can access all this data with one universal sign in without having to personally register with each and every news outlet.
