Rob Ford News International Headlines

International reaction roundup to Rob Ford revelations

It's already widely known that Rob Ford is an international phenomenon, but when news of the magnitude we got last night breaks, it makes waves around the world. And that's kinda weird, isn't it. Toronto, a city so desperate for global recognition, has finally got it, but in the most problematic of ways. It will be interesting to see what happens with on the late night talk shows tonight, but the international headlines have already piled up since this latest scandal broke.

Here's a quick roundup of what the world is saying.

CNN was quick to jump on the story, taking a (much needed) break from Donald Sterling coverage.

On one end of the publishing pole, The New York Times weighed in with a rather dry news story, while on the other, TMZ ran the story at the top of their page with the type of title you'd expect from the site. Perez Hilton also got in on the fun.

ABC covered the hard news story, and then got in on the party with this roundup of the best Rob Ford one-liners.

The Wall Street Journal has remained on top of the story throughout the day. Ditto for the BBC.

The lede of this Washington Post story is pure gold, while Gawker devoted almost as many stories to Ford as we have.

The best part of this Buzzfeed article is the "related links" section, while New York Magazine gets straight to the list-based content with this roundup of times Ford has been caught on tape.

Now all we have to wait for is the latest Taiwanese animated take on the story.
