Where do they find these scoops! Tweets are limited to 140 characters, so the Associated Press simply didn’t have room for the full disclaimer. That Lance Armstrong took performance-enhancing drugs might be considered breaking news if you just awakened from a coma.

To be fair, BBC Sport broke the news a full two minutes before the Associated Press.

Since “Breaking” has apparently lost all meaning, what does anyone else have?

Just because everyone already knew doesn’t mean that “breaking” doesn’t apply in every sense.
