Conservative PR machines going under Good Riddance

 

 As predicted and fore known too the CanWest’s newspaper empire is  for sale  Canada’s largest newspaper group is on the auction block amid the biggest upheaval in the country’s media industry in years. CanWest Global Communications Corp., put most of its big-city dailies into bankruptcy protection Friday after sinking under about $3 billion of debt.  CanWest said its newspapers – including the National Post, its only daily not now under protection from creditors – are looking for new owners in hopes of wiping out some of the company’s debt while keeping the newspapers in business. Conservative  PR machines going under Good Riddance.. No tears are being shed here too..

ONE REASON  I OFTEN MAKE MY POSTS IS CAUSE THE NEWS MEDIA OFTEN LIE, SPIN, DISTORT THE TRUTH LIKE CTV, NATIONAL POST, SUN AND OTHERS.. WHAT HAPPENED TO NEWS MEDIA BEING FIRSTLY HONEST, AND HOW CAN I EXPECT THE POLITICIANS TO BE NEXT HONEST WHEN THE NEWS MEDIA too often LIE.

There is too little investigative effort (with the Vancouver Sun being a notable exception) and too little originality. If you want to retain readers, whether they read on their phone, a computer screen, an e-book, or messages projected onto clouds (it could happen!) they need a reason to do so. The company that buys the country’s newspapers can capitalize by being aggressively local in each market, by sharing important stories in all markets, and by making content generation job one. One might say the new media model, and new revenue potential, will come from an old idea – first serve the needs and interests of your audience. http://www.troymedia.com/?p=7134

and don’t you dare get sick and go to a Hospital you might have to find out what the doctors, nurses, hospital and Medicare are really like now too

WHY MANY BUSINESSES FAIL

 
bell-internet isp
 
 

 

We also do all know that most persons  still  tend to take an ostrich denial approach to their own faults, shortcomings still..

MANY BUSINESSES FAIL FIRSTLY BECAUSE  THEY LIE..  NEXT OF COURSE BECAUSE OF THE POOR , NEGATIVE WAY THEY SEE, DO TREAT  THE CUSTOMERS, AND THEIR EMPLOYEES AS WELL. So sooner or later they still tend to fail as a direct result, face cutbacks, downsizing, serious changes .. Karma
 
SECONDLY THEY USE A FALSE, POOR , NEGATIVE MANAGEMENT STYLE STILL.. DICTATORSHIP
   
I was really, really surprised as to how many persons lie, are being lied to in life, in churches..
 
A key part of the Canwest Global Communications Corp. media empire has been granted court protection from creditors. Canwest,  a CONTROL FREAK too, controls The National Post newspaper and Global Television AND many of the largest daily papers in Canadian cities, including the Edmonton, Windsor, Ottawa Citizen, the Montreal Gazette, the Vancouver Sun, the Vancouver Province, the Victoria Times-Colonist and the Calgary Herald. Ironically these are some of the most unfriendly newspapers that I also have dealt with now .. SO I AM NOT SURPRISED THEY ARE HAVING FINANCIAL PROBLEMS.
 
CTV Television Inc., Canwest Global Communications and the publicly funded CBC have all blamed the economic downturn, increasing competition and inroads by the Internet for cuts to staff and local programming.  Recent months have seen CTV slash the local news arms of “Canada AM,” gut staff at its A Channel stations and cancel local morning shows in Victoria, London, Ont., Barrie, Ont., and Montreal. Canwest has been grappling with a $4 billion debt and is trying to sell five E! network television stations, while the publicly funded CBC has said a $171-million shortfall is forcing it to eliminate up to 800 jobs. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090522/national/ctv_local_news
 
No one asked me anything about it.. I have not watched these crappy TV stations for a year now, and there is only 2 Canadian TV programs that  I have watched and one was  was “The Listener” and the other was was “The Border”..
 
I heard firsthand one teenager saying to another teenager  , “I cannot trust you, you lie to me all the time” and this next had made me reflect upon the reality that the average person lies 3 times in every ten minutes of conversation, and it also reminded me with my past years of undeniable dealing with Bell related to my internet download problems, they too had  lied to me all the time, by not admitting the truth first that there was a problem, nor next honestly admitting the cause of the problem. It seems that spin doctoring, misleading, lying to others is a very major part of not just the lawyers, used car salesmen, but a regular part of the sales, advertising, corporate way of doing business with consumers these days Canada wide now as well.  

 “Farmers have been involved with selling local product for decades. What’s happening now is that the consumer side is catching on, “and “one of the big challenges to markets was reaching “mid-level or second-tier” consumers, who, studies showed, stayed away, in large part, because of affordability.” Also “locally grown food, in many cases, is also more costly to produce, because Canadian labour and, often, land is worth more than in Brazil or China. Above all, though, local growing conditions for most foods are less productive than elsewhere.”” the cheapest and best the best way is actually to skip the farmers’ market and eat global”. Price conscious consumers reality..

 Even the Canadian Pork  or Beef famers are also lazy and unrealistic persons ehh?  Spin doctor, lie to others , blame others all you want..  but you still will not change the reality.. the price of pork, beef  was too high in a recession, for the consumers are not stupid but price conscious.. as a good realtor knows now too, it is always better to sell more units at a lower price over selling less units  at a higher price.. but if you tell that to the lazy, unrealistic, greedy persons they will hate you.. fire you…

 
When a business’s profitability is severely reducing, dropping, the top  management often fails to admit the truth, the real reasons as to why,  and they also tend to falsely among many other things
– lie some more
– raise their prices to try to try to increase their profitability, making themselves more uncompetitive
– cut back on customer services, clearly making matters even worse
– resort to costly, false, misleading advertisements again
– blame their employees , and have a high employee turnover, making matters worse
– blame other facts for their own management failures,
– really do not provide a positive, competitive  service
– generally fail to replace all of the bad top executive, middle managers with good personnel
 
That includes Loblaw, BeLL, GM, RCMP, Metro, pastors, governments, Real Estate firms, Car dealerships, Newspapers, TV stations, HOSPITALS, Grocery Chains stores, etc.,
 
bad apple
 
 

Reality- When the employees tend to blame the top management solely for all the problems, generally it is too late to do so, one rotten apple has already tended next to make the whole basket rotten.. and that is often why bankruptcy, or being bought out is the only effective solution too.. that includes not only Corporations, but civil and public services, Hospitals too..
  
About sowing and reaping.. “Recession fallout hits BCE, Telus wireless results BCE ‘NOT IMMUNE’ TO ECONOMY “We’re not immune,” BCE Chief Executive George Cope said of the economy during a conference call with analysts. The company’s shares fell 62 Canadian cents to C$25.45.The company’s quarterly revenue edged lower to C$4.34 billion ($3.7 billion) from C$4.36 billion a year earlier. At Telus, revenue crawled higher to C$2.37 billion from C$2.35 billion.”  Reuters  –  More miss information, lying corporate spin   and what about news editors, news reporters using their own brain, research rather? doing the honest reporting?   –all 96 articles »
  
Bell has no one but itself to blame for it’s own  downfall,  about 40 percent of it’s own internet customers have complained about big bad Bell abusing them, lying to them, not keeping their contract agreement already. I have often told Bell  in writing that would all  happen now too on the net as well..
  
Bell like Loblow , Royal LePage merely reaps too what it sows.. it next fails to get repeat customers and much needed referrals as a direct result too..
