Letter to Romenesko:
From JASON FEIFER: I’ve been watching the first season  of The West Wing, because friends keep telling me I missed something great. (My verdict: I didn’t.) Last night I came across a scene that was hilarious. Video here:
twitvid.com/C31LA – How outdated in West Wing? This episode: News “is going to break tomorrow. It’s on the Internet right now.” Quaint!

Context: It’s evening at the White House. News about the chief-of-staff’s past drug addiction is found to be “on the Internet right now,” which means the White House expects the news to “break in the morning.” So, they’ll do a press briefing then—the next morning.
How quaint! What a different, unrecognizable time.
