His bigger complaint is that the GOP’s model — to the extent they have some kind of coherent theory about new media, and it’s quite questionable they even have that — is that the GOP shall be tasked with all intellectual work of creating and shaping a message, and then they will send out mass press releases to bloggers, who will do nothing but cut and paste those well-crafted messages and hit “publish.”
