Media get embargoed copies of the articles so they can write them up
and interview the authors. I'm sure they are provided the links then.
Too bad they can't just link using the DOI instead of this
ridiculously long URL.

Actually, they are available to the general public whenever there is a
citation in one of 100 news media and science blog outlets.  If an
article is cited, anyone who reads the news release can view a
read-only version of the article.

[MOD QUESTION:  And the media get them from where?  From a Nature
Press Release, or?  What proportion of articles would be found this
way?]

It¹s worth noting that (despite the slightly misleading title of
Nature¹s announcement) the articles are only being made "free to view²
in the sense that people who are subscribers may share links to the
read-only versions with non-subscribers. The articles aren¹t being
made viewable by members of the general public who have citations or
who find the articles on their own.

This certainly marks an increase in public access to Nature content,
but it¹s not as big an increase as it may seem at first glance.
