In an explosive report released early Friday morning, the Argus Leader has officially been locked out of their own system after using their 5 free article views.

“We had no idea it was this bad. We literally cannot access anything on our website without paying $.99 for 3 months, saving us 90%,” said one Argus Leader representative we spoke with.

It comes as no surprise as cheapskates across the Sioux Falls region continue to complain about paying $1 for access to award winning journalism.

“I’m seriously not ready to pay that kind of dough for just 3 months of staying informed,” said one woman with a Starbucks cup in her hand.

Argus employees continue to work on how to get around the “Get Access” screen, but have failed at every turn.

“We’ve tried opening new browsers, going incognito, changing around IP addresses, but the system has evolved and is not letting us in without paying,” said the Argus representative.

Please don’t sue us for writing this, Argus.
