The WSJ Breaks the External-Link Taboo

Many congratulations to the Wall Street Journal! Here’s a little bit of today’s front page — you can click on the picture for a big screencap of the full front page.

The important thing here is the second link, to the third-quarter report: it’s an external link, to the SEC’s website. I don’t know whether the WSJ has done this before, but it’s the first time I’ve ever seen an external link on the home page of any mainstream news organization website. May there be many more!
