Good Friday? Not

Noticeably absent in today's Toronto Sun print edition: An update on the search for an eight-year-old Woodstock girl who vanished Wednesday and also Mark Bonokoski's column.

Upfront space was available for stories about cats and dogs and the continuing bad economy, (yawn), but not for the desperate search for Victoria “Tori” Stafford, 8, and news that Oxford police have video of the girl walking with an unidentified woman.

It is a national story. The Sun should be all over it, including columnist coverage, or are they assuming everyone will read the updates online?

We were looking forward to reading Bono's promised piece about Moe Jiwani, a missing Oakville millionaire, but it was MIA.

Bonokoski Twittered today: "The "new" world of newspapers. Today's scheduled column held back because of "space reasons," despite a "news" angle. Very frustrating."

Solid front page story about the Stoney Creek kids being "held prisoner," but news judgment lacking elsewhere.
