Most newspapers these days put a large portion of their content available online for anyone to read, so you shouldn't have to work too hard to find the newspaper you're looking for. Note: there are some newspapers that only allow readers to peruse a certain number of articles before requesting registration and possibly payment; it's completely up to you whether or not you choose to take this route. As information becomes more widely disseminated on the Web, this practice is slowly dying out.
