Has anyone seen the crap that North Country Now is putting out about Massena? I think they have a reporter covering the area now, but all he writes is shitty, short little stories that are only a couple paragraphs long. I don't think he's wrote anything about anything that's important or really matters. I know the Courier fucks up a lot with spelling mistakes and stuff like that, but at least they attempt to write stories that matter. I don't know where North Country Now found their Massena reporter from, but maybe they should send him back to the school paper for a couple months to get a lesson in writing stories that people care about.

I doubt anyone who works for that site actually has a degree in journalism. Only in the past year have they actually attempted to write articles, their primary mission is just to relay all the local media's coverage.

I don't mean to rain on anyone's parade, but Benny Fairchild works for The Courier. I can't remember what the North Country Now reporter's name is, but it's someone who got fired by the newspaper in Malone.

Whoever it is does a good job because we get a lot of news that the MPCO overlooks. There was an ongoing feud between the two and now NCN does not use any links from MPCO or WDT. Keep up the good work NCN keep us informed.

His articles are amateurish at best. For example he wrote an article in the paper about the common core curriculum and never once even described what the common core curriculum IS nor even referred to it as a curriculum, just "common core".

The stories they write are shit, that is why they get stories that the DCO overlooks. Their reporter, if you want to call him that, has been attending town board meetings for the past several months, but how many stories has he wrote about the hospital? I don't think Benny is ever going to win a Pulitzer Prize either, but at least he writes stories that matter to the community, that take time and require effort. What's the longest, most in depth story you've ever seen come from the NCN reporter? There's a reason he was fired by the newspaper in Malone. Why don't you all you NCN fans ask him about that.

I guess Mr. Fairchild forgot he lives and works in a community full of idiots. Do you live under a rock? If you don't know what the common core is, or couldn't figure it our by reading the article where he reffered to lesson plans and curriculum several times then I'm surprised you even know how to turn on a computer to read an article online or even read for that matter.

I still don't know who the North Country Now reporter is, but he obvisouly writes on Topix under the name Used to be, as in perhaps used to be a newspaper reporter, like Really said.

The guy's obviously not as clever as he thinks he is, after slipping a "we" into his posting

Then why doesn't your seven year old apply for a job? That's right, because people don't want to read about pudding cups and what boy has cooties this week.

How about that recent muckraking article about the guy complaining about his neighbor's property? They reported the personal condition of those people without even giving them a chance for rebuttal. Even reported that an old man is dying...what the hell? Worthless junk articles like that are featured as well.

Apparently someone doesn't have a good grasp on the English language. Don't give up your day job super sleuth because you have no clue. "We" as in the people. There are different tidbits of info that MPCO does not find newsworthy apparently or asked to be kept out of the paper. No good ol boys club at NCN. Obviously!!!

Hey there Used to be, this posting only made it even more obvious you are Andy Gardner. Perhaps you should have used a different posting name than Used to be, as in used to be employed by the newspaper until you fucked up and got fired. I've been comparing the coverage lately since seeing this post and while North Country Now occasionally has articles that the Courier does not, there are many, many more articles in the Courier, which has a limited amount of space each day than there is on your little website, which has an unlimited amount of space. How about you actually do some work and write a story that's more than 3 paragraphs long, rather than hopping online and anonymously trashing your former employer. If you really are a Massena reporter, how come you're not writing about the budget or the hospital on a regular basis. Those are stories that actually impact the community and the people who live there.

Because I am not a reporter, I do not work or ever have worked for MPCO or NCN, nor am I Andy Gardner. Back your statements up with facts before trashing someone. It only makes you look like a complete ass.

They did it again. Seems like the Courier-Observer doesn't feel like the revitalization of downtown is worth writing about. I saw North Country now had a story on that this morning, but it was nowhere to be seen in today's paper.
