Wednesday evening, several news outlets announced that Wikileaks had JUST RELEASED 29 new Democratic National Committee voicemails, a brilliant bit of counter-programming against tonight’s Democratic convention events if true.

The only problem was that those 29 voicemails were leaked and announced with the rest of initial email dump on Friday, with WikiLeaks merely reposting a link to the audio files Wednesday night.

In fact, true to the voicemail genre, the ones obtained by WikiLeaks were boring as hell, apparently drawn from messages sent to DNC headquarters—not between staffers. Arguably the juiciest of the lot are from angry supporters complaining about perceived preferential treatment for the candidates.

I guess you haven’t gotten enough of that from your college friends on Facebook, then it is BREAKING.
