    it isn't said/it doesn't say

    Hello!

    If in a text the author doesn't say anything about something.
    What is the best way to say it:

    1) it isn't said in the text.
    2) it doesn't say in the text.

    Re: it isn't said/it doesn't say

    1), but given/stated would work better as verbs for me. 2) is wrong.
