LA Times Refuses to Hyperlink from Articles

Dave Bullock from MetroBlogging Los Angeles wonders why the Los Angeles Times does not hyperlink articles, with ten comments and counting. Sounds like a great way to increase traffic to the Times online edition.

It seems ludicrous to me that in this day and age of technology, a major media outlet like the LAT doesn't know how, or simply refuses, to link to websites they mention in their articles. I am guessing this has something to do with their outdated cumbersome publishing platform, because they do link on their various blogs. The reason I am posting this, is because Eric Richardson has been covering the whole APT debacle for the last 6 months on Blogdowntown, and although he gets two lines of coverage in the article LAT finally wrote about the APTs, they didn't hyperlink to his article or website. Seriously though, what are you guys thinking?
