People who just don’t get it

Geekosystem reports this nugget about the news coverage of the recent attempted bombing in Times Square, New York.CNN anchor Don Lemon, speaking to former assistant director of the FBI Tom Fuentes, called up a Google Earth image of the area, which was blurred. This exchange followed:
Lemon: My question to Mr. Fuentes would be: What does that mean? What should we garner from this when this area is even blurred out on Google Earth because of this security alert?
Fuentes: I think they don't want you to see exactly what kind of work they're doing, and also they're searching other parts of the area just to be safe.
When of course we all know the correct answer is: The image isn't intentionally blurred, your Web page is loading slowly. Google Earth images aren't real-time, you yutzes.
