The NYT is Leading the Charge

To the future that is. The Times continues to innovate with it's online news coverage. I'm a big fan of their interactive extras and while their latest is labeled as such it's more of a give and take if you will, a move to make journalism more communicative and not just a one way medium.

The Times ran an article about a week ago detailing Senator Rangel's dealings with a corporate tax loophole and large charitable donations. Needless to say the Senator was less than thrilled with the coverage and protested in a letter to the editor. On Wednesday the Times responded, go have a look...

The response reminds me of one of the first things that I ever put up online, I do think that the Times is headed in the right direction and that after some initial stumbling (Times Select anyone?) is leading the way (they now link to competitor's articles).
