The New York Times doesn’t want us to read anymore. With the 2010 Winter Olympics at a close, the highly regarded paper decided to lose the usual results bar graph and make an audio presentation for its website instead.

It’s an interesting approach to delivering the news, but does the Times really want to give people more reason not to pick up newsprint?
