The editor of Gawker, the U.S. gossip website that has led efforts to purchase and bring to light a purported video of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford smoking what appears to be crack cocaine, now says its main contact fears the footage is "gone."

"At the end of last week, after a long silence, the video's owner reached out to the intermediary we have been dealing with. [The owner] told [the intermediary] the video is 'gone,'" wrote John Cook in an update posted Tuesday.

I would say libel. How does a digital video disappear?

[The owner] told [the intermediary] the video is 'gone,'"

Does that mean the LA Times has it?
