NYTimes Shocked That People Write Blogs To Respond To Press Inaccuracies

DV Henkel-Wallace writes "The New York Times has an article expressing surprise that people who aren't happy about articles blog about it, including full disclosure of interview transcripts and the like. As an article, that alone may not be so interesting. But although they tried to keep article somewhat neutral, it still reflects some shock that the gatekeepers don't get to "keep the gate" as it were. The best quote:
"A newspaper reporter's original article is likely to disappear from the free Web site after a few days and become inaccessible unless purchased from the newspaper's archives, while the blogger's version of events remains available forever."Somehow the Times failed to point out that the one-week limitation is in no way unfair: they choose to take their content offline!"
