This correction—from the Nashua, New Hampshire, Telegraph—says it all about the secretiveness of political communication these days:

A story on Page 1 of Tuesday’s Telegraph quoted a White House official explaining that a Q-and-A session with dozens of teenagers in Nashua High School North on Monday was “off the record.” However, the explanation about the talk being “off the record” was, it turns out, also “off the record” and should not have been quoted.

Hat tip to Regret the Error.
