Alas, NYT - Almost But Not Quite

The NYTimes doesn't quite get the net, not yet. They still think they are a newspaper company, as in, paper, meaning, on paper. They need to really internalize that they are (and yes, "they are", not "it is", reification is a no-no but grammatically preferred, what to do?), that they are an information company. So when I was just reading an article about immigrants to the US and hospitals, I found this interesting bit:

So, "hospitals" should be to some source about Swedes and Norwegians having different hospitals, right? (They used to be one country, so, different hospitals? Must be interesting!) But no. It's a NYTimes link to NYTimes stories about hospitals. Not helpful! When will they get it?
