NY Times top story links direct to source

NY Times homepage with ford.com link
Linking back to the source material has to be a good thing. But I’m really quite surprised to see ‘News release (ford.com)’ appearing alongside the top story on the New York Times homepage. Good on them though… they make it clear that it’s an external link, so there’s no scope for confusion… as long as you realise that the large-print headline at the top is a link to the NYT’s own story. I’m not sure that’s made clear enough.
