The Washington Post
The Washington Post's paywall definitely scores points for going for the jugular. Appealing to my personal virtues while touting the virtues of a free press? Democracy dies in a place with no platform for virtue signaling.

Also, Bob Woodward is somewhere behind this paywall, too.
The New York Times
All the cool kids have The New York Times, and they'll let you have a taste of the good life for ten blissful clicks. After that you're going to have to pay to play.
