Darn February being three days shorter than January! It’s been an INTENSELY LOCAL month here at CFN headquarters! We are in the midst of a full blown attack from a very corrupt Cornwall Ontario Mayor Kilger and his team from city officials, council, and those interconnected at various city agencies.
It brings up the question that all media are facing digitally. Pay Walls, subscriber services, media are trying to find ways to keep the lights on. We know that you read CFN as our numbers are truly wonderful thanks to our viewers, but sadly we live in a world where ad dollars, across the board, are becoming tied to content. It’s not just here in Cornwall, although it may become a case study for the correlation between the two. Rock the boat; actually practice journalism, and your company can be…wiped out.
Here in Cornwall we’re experiencing bullying and harassment of some of our clients. As many regular viewers will notice between our Chamber awards and the mayor having me removed from City Council by seven police officers because he didn’t like my t shirt of him on a milk carton, we have lost a lot of our long term ad support. It’s not new for us here at CFN as we have been bullied since our first year at an institutional level.
CFN will stand brave, but it’s hard to invest resources into growth and coverage when your resources are being choked off…
