The Front Page

Peter Worthington's column today takes Sun Media readers back to the day when the Tely and the Star were fierce competitors vying for genuine "exclusives."

Scenes right out of The Front Page.

Even a 1970s replay of Peter Young's journey from the Toronto Sun to the Star to snatch an exclusive photo from the Star's composing room and return to 333 a hero.

The exclusives Peter W. writes about were just that and largely due to the creative juices of fiercely competitive reporters.

Our kind of newspaper wars.
