Easy to swing bats now that things have progressed to the world of instant media, but there was a long hard road getting her that others had to traverse. Its far to easy nowadays to forget that.

Guys like Dupont have the exact same access to that slick and easy medium. The Globe, and every other newspaper on the planet, has a website, and they also have access to Twitter. As I noted previously, the medium is nothing more than a tool; it doesn't usurp hard work.
