THE NEW YORK TIMES HAS APPARENTLY SUSPENDED THE “OFF THE RECORD” RULE: “I don’t know who the person is at the New York Times who was talking out of school, but somebody over there broke the rules. The other candidates (and everyone else in any position to ever be of interest to the media) should be aware that the Times is no longer playing by the rules and monitor what they say to their editorial board or reporters accordingly.”

As they say in broadcast media whenever someone slips up and a curse word airs during a news broadcast, or something untoward is said as the credits are rolling, “assume all mics are hot.”
