CNET.com --- stupid, mindless IT journalism.

Cnet article about DNS outages at Comcast explains DNS as:

"The DNS system essentially routes one's Internet protocol address to the appropriate Web site that the user wants to visit. "

Original Article here. Screenshot of article is at this link.

Huh? WTF?

They got that wrong, and backwards.

Essentially, a DNS server resolves the hostnames to an IP address.

Stop smoking, Cnet...!!
