…the usage of the word “brief” has become a bit confusing. I thought the definition would be obvious, but considering recent usages of the word, I’m not sure the meaning is apparent.
For example, on April 16, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said, “The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Peter King, is joining us right now. He’s been fully briefed on this scandal.”
Is it possible to be “fully briefed”?
Can I “exhaustively summarize” a scandal?
Read all of “Fully Briefed.”
