Check this article out, note the old favourite of “i am a 12 year old and what is this?” Interpreted by the UK media as WHY THIS ASSAULT IS SO DANGEROUS!!!

Children DON’T JUST find porn that easily.

“The idiot’s probably never used the internet.”
Fixed.
Seriously, though, this is why Blogs are more popular than old media as sources of news. Old media simply cannot compete with the overwhelming amount of blogs that accurately and quickly document events. Take Twitter, for instance, how is a newspaper supposed to compete with the realtime news reporting frequently found there? While old media is still somewhat relevant, it is becoming less relevant as time passes.

Ha! Yeah, I saw that too. People are reposting that everywhere. The thing is, that’s from May. It’s not about today’s porn flood.
