The lead story in today’s Post — big headline, above the fold — is Scott Taylor’s weeklong kidnapping/beating ordeal at the hands of Al-Qaeda in Northern Iraq last week. It sounds pretty harrowing… Canada could have had our own hostage/beheading threat, which certainly would have given Post editorialists the opportunity to say “we told you so.”
Interesting to note, though, that the Globe only saw fit to run the story as one of its news briefs in the middle of the front section.
Could it be because Taylor was working for Global at the time?
