I didn't watch the video because I'm old and cranky and hate videos on the internet, but I'm reminded of how The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo begins with the main guy character going to prison and taking his laptop with him so he can write a book while he's in there. I was boggled at how different Scandinavian prisons must be from American ones.
Have an NYT article on it I read a little while back.
So when you see NYT in print, you read "en wye tee" in your mind? Huh. I always hear the full "New York Times".

It's how I was taught to handle abbreviations and a/an.
