Breaking news; Facebook didn’t bring down Mubarak

Pew shames a Western media that routinely praises the internet for bringing revolutions to Egypt and beyond (thanks to The Angry Arab):

Role of Social Networking: Nearly a quarter of Egyptians (23%) say they… have used social networking sites such as… Facebook, MySpace and Twitter to obtain news… about their country’s political situation; 6%… access these sites but have not used it as a… source of political news. About two-thirds… (65%) do not use the internet or email.
