Old-Style Media

Relatively interesting story on state-by-state rates of teen pregnancy. Mississippi is now No. 1 with the highest rate. The problem with the story is that not only does it only mention a few states, it doesn't include a link to the report it mentions. I see this all the time. Why don't the old-style media help readers out? Why don't they back up their claims with actual sources? Is it because if we can check things for ourselves, then we don't need them to interpret things for us? Maybe.
