This isn't an example of some failing in the newspaper model; it's merely bad writing. (Frankly, a lot of NY Times writing is unbearably puffy and self-important.)

What I found interesting about this is that it is one of the arguments I have heard against the blogosphere-- bad writing. As if you never see that in a newspaper.

I am also with Highwater on what I've come to expect from news outlets because of my experience with the internet, including timely updates. If the major papers lock everyone but subscribers out of online content, they'd better have darn good websites to interest me in paying for access. Otherwise, I may end up just getting my news from public broadcasters (CBC, NPR, BBC) on the radio and online, and supplementing their commentary with blogs.
