Does basteing a Turkey not help it stay Moist.

On the excellenct food network show Good Eats, the host claims that basteing a turkey does nothing more keep the skin moist. He says that the juice does not penetrate the bird's flesh. Is this true? Is it just a worthless cultural tradition to baste the turkey every half an hour?
