The article wants to point out that people are having a hard time converting bitcoins to cash but here is a method which achieves this exact same process and it is coming at no cost to the seller of bitcoins. Full MtGox rates are paid for their bitcoins and deposited directly into their own bank accounts without needing to go through an exchange like MtGox.
Bitcoin has been quite resilient so far and oddly enough its price keeps rising today (though its still to early to tell.) Maybe I missed something but MT.Gox has only suspended USD withdrawals but you can still trade and make USD deposits. You could trade all your USD into bitcoins and move the Bitcoin to another service (i.e. Coinbase.) I would also think (hope) that people who had a USD balance with MT.Gox didn't have a significant portion of their total assets gone. Mt.Gox has had a lot of issues lately and any fiat money they held would have to be considered at high risk for loss.
