Better late?

Sunday Sun readers in Toronto had to wait 22 pages for news of the Tucson massacre, while Sunday Star readers read about it on the front page.

Sunday Sun editors had ample time to get it right, but once again dropped the ball with a lapse  in good news judgment.

The Sun did get it right for Monday's paper, with pages 4 and 5 devoted to the aftermath of the Tucson tragedy.


  1. Do you think this is a result of only using QMI and not having proper resources?

  2. Of course it is. Weekend breaking news is pretty much non-existent. The QMI desks barely have enough people on to steal the copy from other major sources and rewrite it and claim it as their own work.
