Jack Shafer: “Never email. Never text. This fundamental lesson has been dragged out of the classroom by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa”

From a Jack Shafer Fourth Estate column on politico.com headlined “Why Historians Should Be Grateful Ginni Thomas Texts Like a Teenager”:

Never email. Never text. This fundamental lesson, obvious to anybody who has read the news or answered a subpoena over the past 25 years, was dragged out of the classroom this week by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa of the Washington Post and presented to advance the remedial education for Ginni Thomas and Mark Meadows, who seem to have forgotten that in the modern era, electronic communications can come back to bite you.
