you're right to state the point here is how to read drop. what you've said seemed to make sense at first look, but after i checked the m-w online dict, i changed my mind.

the dict says drop as a noun have the meaning of:

the advantage of having an opponent covered with a firearm; broadly : advantage, superiority —usually used in the phrase get the drop on

more examples:
习惯用语
get the drop on或have the drop on
To achieve a distinct advantage over.
胜过某人:取得对…的明显优势

get the drop on sb.
抢先拔枪瞄准(某人); 先发制人; 占上风; 占优势
have the drop on sb.
抢先拔枪瞄准(某人); 先发制人; 占上风; 占优势

in a word, all my search results do not support your explanation that drop means news or information here. i'm a pb fan, so i want to be absoutely clear about everything in the drama. anyway, thank u.
