Spoiler: If you don't want to hear me rambling, and you just want the Ha'aretz articles for free, drag the link below into your bookmarks toolbar (by holding down the left mouse button and moving it up there), and click on it whenever you're on a Ha'aretz.com article that is asking you to pay.
Which brings me to this post. I'm going to purge this ESPN Insider fixation by sacrificing a different paywall to the developer gods. My offering: Ha'aretz.
Now, if truth be told, all Ha'aretz articles, like those on the New York Times website, are already accessible for free relatively easily. All you have to do is copy the headline of the article in question into Google, then click on the relevant search result and you'll see the whole article. But for some of us, that's just too many steps. Hence, my bookmarklet.
As with my previous two successful attempts at cracking online media paywalls (see the New York Times post and the Wall Street Journal post), if you want to read the Ha'aretz "for pay" articles for free, just do as you did before: Hold down the left mouse button on the link at the bottom of this post (it says, 'Ha'aretz Free'), and drag it up to your bookmarks toolbar. Then, when you're on a Ha'aretz article which is demanding that you pay, click on that bookmarklet (the link in your toolbar) and the article will magically appear.
Below, the Ha'aretz bookmarklet:
