CAJ noms

The Toronto Sun has a story about Elizabeth Thompson in Ottawa being nominated for a Canadian Association of Journalists award, but fails to mention two nominations for a Woodstock Sentinel-Review staffer.

Thompson, a Parliamentary Bureau reporter, is nominated in the "scoop" category for her stories about the feds accidentally selling historic silver on loan from Buckingham Palace in an online auction.

Overlooked in the Sun Media story is Elliot Ferguson, nominated in the photojournalism and community newspaper categories for his "Tori is Missing" entries.

The Sentinel-Review has a story about Ferguson's latest nominations for his work on the abduction and murder of eight-year-old Tori Stafford, but it doesn't mention Thompson's nomination.

So much for "family" when it comes to reporting on Sun Media nominations and awards.

The CAJ annual awards dinner will be held May 29 in Montreal. Click here for all of the 2009 nominations.
