Attention QMI

The Canadian Press knows how to write a summary of  media awards nominations, as viewed online in a Winnipeg Free Press story.

Take notes, QMI. It isn't rocket science, but it does take a body to write the story with a Sun Media slant.

Not to rub it in, but the story in the Manitoba newspaper is about the 2010 Ontario Newspaper Awards nominees. It lists every individual nominated and all of the newspapers.

If Quebecor was the least bit interested in raising the morale level in its Sun Media chain, self-promotion for newsrooms being recognized for jobs well done would be a good start.

The CP story can be read here.


  1. I believe The Sudbury Star posted a similar list on its website.

  2. Management here didn't even forward us the nomination forms, staff dug them up themselves. Now that there is actual ONA nomination(s) involved for our publication, suddenly there is great pride felt by management. Could management find ways to be any more nauseating? Yes they have ... reward us with more work through attrition.
