I heard from two readers today a similar sentiment: That the Page A1 story about Lance Armstrong's appearance on Oprah, where he's reported to confess to using illicit performance-enhancing substances, is "old news," in one reader's eyes.

"I have been reading about the interview for days," said another reader via email.

This is an interesting illustration of just how saturated a lot of media have become, especially when we're talking about national stories involving celebrities.

It's definitely true that this story seems old hat to those of us who consume a lot of media, especially online. But on the other hand, the interview with Winfrey doesn't even run until Thursday, so the cat isn't officially out of the bag quite yet.

It's another example of how print papers are inherently different from speedier online and broadcast news sources.
