SNL sketch about …. wait for it ….. a newspaper

The current TV “it girl” Zooey Deschanel brings her 2012 sensibilities to a 1941 newspaper newsroom for a few laughs in Saturday’s show.

Did people really talk this rapid-fire way in real life in the way back when? I know that in some movies Hollywood portrayed newsroom speakeese with that Walter Winchell staccato, but I suspect real folks didn’t actually talk like this.

Anyone who was around want to fess up?
