More revelations on Rob Ford
Never a dull moment with Toronto's mayor. At the top of our newsroom today: Rob Ford takes leave as new drug video emerges, Globe and Mail's Robyn Doolittle reports. "But seriously, what a way to start a new reporting gig. This story is Robyn's first G&M byline," colleague Greg McArthur tweeted. At the New York Times, Adam Sternbergh seemed gobsmacked: "No one could find the Rob Ford crack-smoking video so he kindly went out and MADE ANOTHER CRACK-SMOKING VIDEO." Meanwhile, Ford tells Jenny Yuen and Joe Warmington at the Toronto Sun that he is "ready to take a break." Excellent choice.
And finally, an explanatory note from The Globe and Mail editor: Why we published the Rob Ford photos.
