Does Corus Radio Cornwall’s Bill Kingston Have Sour Grapes?  Let’s Compare Numbers  Bill!

Kingston KorneredCORNWALL Ontario – That wacky Bill Kingston from Corus Radio weighed into the South Stormont News issue in his commentary this morning.    Bill prattles about Newspapers being dead yet his own radio station’s website is geared to feel like a newspaper itself with the very newsy like name of The Cornwall Daily.

While the medium of Printed newspaper is dying (with the exception of community papers with older populations such as South Stormont and the area)  Mr. Kingston fails to mention the soaring of Online newspaper viewership . He also neglects to state how far back viewer wise for example his own medium, radio, is behind this online newspaper, and the Free Holder.

While some many not enjoy CFN, they still read it.  I sincerely doubt that Corus Radio has even 25% of the audience that we do here at CFN; yet his commentary this morning clearly takes a shot at a decision made by the council of South Stormont.

Radio using a rating system that extrapolates numbers from a small pool.  Online we use actual hard core numbers based on viewer interactions.   Which do you think more accurate or reflective?

Sour Grapes Bill?

The only radio station that my husband puts on the car radio when we are in Cornwall is 104.5 FM and when we lived in Cornwall we never listened to the radio except for that station on the car radio while driving. I like our Jewel radio station here in Ottawa and one of the announcers is your own previous mayor Brian Sylvester. The good people left Cornwall.

Jules, what do you mean when you say,

@ Trevor. Jules has stated many times that the folks who stay in Cornwall are losers.
From a lofty tower in south Ottawa, it’s easy to look down and ridicule those who remain in their home town.

Cornwall is not full of losers. Some people love Cornwall, some don’t. Some people love Ottawa, some don’t (myself included). To each their own. Everyone has to find what works for them.

Jamie said it best that you lose when you allow the “losers” to take control and have impact and that is exactly true. If people had a spine in themselves and a real nerve and self esteem they would throw all those bums out of town who are in control. These people belong to certain clubs where they know how to CONTROL and it isn’t only about money but about CONTROL and they sure are doing a good job out of it. Jamie is intelligent and he knows very well what I mean. People who are intelligent and want to… Read more »

@ Jules, I might also add, that if you run away, (to Ottawa) then you would also be a loser as you are essentially admitting defeat. Jules, you can be part of the solution or part of the problem. So which are you? I have yet to see anything useful , constructive or positive in your posts so I would say that in your own small way you would be part of the problem. I chose to come to Cornwall to live, I like Cornwall and it is now my home. I do not in the least, view myself as… Read more »

Meanwhile….as we get back on topic…. Yes! It sounds like sour grapes to me.

I for one am looking forward to the SouthStormont news. And isn’t it supposed to be both a print and online paper?
