It’s particularly bad with court documents, which are publicly available (in the US) but hard for the general public to obtain. It’s very hard to summarise a complicated case in the amount of space an NYT reporter gets to do so – I should know, having reported on many. Why doesn’t the NYT include a link to the PDFed court filings when they write about a civil case?
