Quick, will somebody, anybody, please nominate The New York Times for a Pulitzer for yesterday's (Dec. 3) story "As Hospital Prices Soar, a Single Stitch Tops $500"!
This is an expose about hospital profit-taking that has long deserved front page coverage. The Times provided that, thanks to Elisabeth Rosenthal's comprehensive reporting. Until yesterday, the outrageous billing practices of the nation's hospitals' has taken place largely in the dark.
