Media bamboozled by newfangled Intertube technology

In response to Nice Scoop Politico:

I love the refrain scattered throughout Politico’s apologetic that Team Obama has somehow dazzled them with fabulous new technologies.  Too bad there was no way for George Bush’s White House to create photo and video content, then instantly release it to the masses through social media!  But that technology didn’t exist until January 2009, and it appeared so suddenly that the media was naturally blindsided by its advent.
