The bloody violence of the ongoing Syrian uprising continuously topped headlines this year, locking it into the #1 spot on CTV National News’s Top 10 News Stories of the year. The Syrian crisis is followed by last week’s tragic U.S. school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut at #2, and rounding out the Top 3 stories of 2012 is coverage of continuing worldwide financial struggles.
