You mean that if I click on the second set of links, there is no payment necessary to finish reading the article? 'Cause that's what both of them basically said.

I think this may be one article
On December 18, 2012, the set of Fox & Friends was both festive and somber. Festive because it was the Christmas season. The three hosts, two men in dark suits flanking a woman in a blue dress, sat on a mustard-colored couch in front of a cheery seasonal backdrop: a lit-up tree, silver-painted twigs, mounds of tinsel, blue and red swatches of fabric, and, here and there, multicolored towers of blown glass with tapering points that made them look surprisingly like minarets. Somber because a terrible thing had happened just four days earlier, in an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. All three hosts looked sad, but the woman, Gretchen Carlson, looked the saddest.

The shot of the three hosts occupied most of the right three quarters of the screen. A guest was joining them by satellite from another location, and a shot of his head and shoulders occupied most of the rest of the screen. This was his third appearance on the program in the last few months. He wore a dark blazer and a button-down shirt with blue stripes. He was middle-aged and handsome in an old-fashioned way, with tanned skin and thick hair parted on the right. The banner below the video feeds read, HOPE IS NOT LOST: NEUROSURGEON SAYS HEAVEN IS REAL.

"Dr. Alexander," Carlson said, "if people don't know your story, you, you were ill, you were in a coma, you left this earth for a week, you were in heaven, and then you wrote about your experiences there, and you were told that you were supposed to come back to the earth."

She paused. She looked into the camera and then looked up toward the studio ceiling and rocked slightly forward.

"As people are grappling with the horrible nature of this tragedy...

Yes, and if you want to read the entire "Esquire" article, it will cost $1.99 as a 'stand alone purchase'.

This is the first time we've asked online readers to pay for a story, but for good reason: Because stories like Dittrich's matter and they don't come along often. Because great journalism—and the months that go into creating it—isn't free. So, besides providing the story to readers of our print and digital-tablet versions of the August issue, we are offering it to online readers as a stand-alone purchase. Thank you. —DG
They make it sound like Dittrich went into some war torn region or unearthed a major corruption scandal at risk to his own life.

This actually is disturbing to me regardless of the article's veracity as it signals possible new lows for shoddy journalism pandering to people in order to make up for lost print media sales.

I totally agree with the last sentence.

What's wrong with offering it as a standalone for cheaper when otherwise you'd have had to purchase the entire magazine to read it? For people who don't want to pay for the entire issue but just want the one article it seems like a good deal? I'm not sure what's shoddy about it.

They are in business to make money. Why is that wrong? Now back to the topic at hand.

My humblest apologies. I was originally able to read the entire article (twice because I went back again after Ninja's post), but I just tried again and there was definitely a cost for reading it so there must've been a glitch originally that has since been fixed by the magazine. Sorry.
