The news article that has to be read wouldn't load for me.
Yikes. I got it to load (it was an external link to the NY Times), but I had to register with the NY Times website in order to view the article, which I am absolutely not thrilled about. I hate how I got 10 minutes into the survey before I was notified that registration to NYT was mandatory to completing the hit; super deceptive and shady. Makes me wonder if the hit is nothing more than a scammy way to get people to register.

That's weird. I wasn't asked to register, and I never have registered in the past.

The news article was another link with interactive content on it. Maybe your browser wouldn't let you?
No, it said too many redirects. Odd thing is I have a subscription to the online NY Times (via the public library during the pandemic they give it to us free).

I think the NY Times gives you access to a few free articles per life or month until they nag you to register or subscribe.

You might even be able to find the articles on other sites for free like an article from the NYT I was told about and was able to read it for free on a different site as that site apparently has rights to carry select NYT articles in full.

Only problem was that it didn't give the title of the article in the link he provided.

The code for this was strange. It had a code I could clearly see, but it also had 5 more letters after it that were visible, but just barely. I copied them all, but the submit box wouldn't take it until I got rid of the extra letters. There better not be a rejection for wrong code!

HUGE amount of writing involved, almost every prompt requires you to write, I would avoid this like the plague.
