Metaphor for FAIL?

The other day, while sitting in my kitchen, I couldn’t remember when the Pulitzers were announced.

So I googled “pulitzer prize” on my iPhone and the first two entries directed me to the official site.

Both asked for a username and password and denied me access.

The third Google entry directed me to Wikipedia, where I got the answer to my question (It’s April 20).

While I’m sure this was a momentary lapse of interwebby functionality, (the official site is working now) there’s a metaphor for the whole news industry in there somewhere.
