Knows something’s up. Sigh.

A web producer accidentally sent the email to anyone who subscribes to the Evening News newsletter listserv.

TVNewser was forwarded the email by many people on the listerv. And we hear Miller herself received emails from mystified colleagues about its meaning. We’re told the “sigh” is in reference to the overworked nature of the CBS newsroom today (we know you newsers can relate).

The web producer sent out a follow-up email, explaining the gaffe:
