German ct magazine postulates death of pgp encryption

there is a discussion ongoing regarding future of pgp/gpg encryption.

German ct magazine has postulated in their last edition that our pgp
handling seems to be too difficult for mass usage, keyserver infrastructure
seems to be vulnerable for faked keys, published mail addresses are
collected from keyservers and so on...

Pls refer to:
Massentaugliche E-Mail-Verschlüsselung gesucht 

Editorial: Lasst PGP sterben! 

M.Marlinspike Blog: GPG And Me 

I am a little bit unhappy about this discussion because pgp still offers
secure end-to-end encryption without the need of a superior CA, no
compromising had been detected so far.

Your positions to this ct approach?

Regards, Chris
