WinSun downer

A child pornography bust news story yesterday was too close to home for the Winnipeg Sun.

One of its veteran editors was netted in an international crackdown on child pornography, the newspaper reported yesterday.

The paper didn't hedge on the details, leading with "A Winnipeg Sun editor is facing child pornography charges."

“We are shocked by the charges,” Kevin Klein, Sun publisher and CEO, says in the story. “We are fully co-operating with Winnipeg police.”

Mark Perry, 58, with the paper for 22 years, was suspended by management on March 1 and appears in court April 26.

Criminal charges against Sun Media employees have been a rare occurrence since Day One of the flagship Toronto Sun in 1971.
