What if the Apollo 11 moon landing had happened today?

Slate gives us an idea of what coverage of such an event would be like today. The resulting video is funny because it's depressing. I think the fact that Slate uses such little actual footage of the landing is pretty spot on. Why show the footage when you can read what people are saying in 140 characters or less on Twitter?

What do you think?

Also, be sure to check out these great photos from The Boston Globe remembering Apollo 11. Good stuff.
