It's surprising that the media covers BlackBerry with such criticism despite strong BB10 phones and billions still in the bank.

More surprising, they all but ignored that Samsung has been fined by the Chinese government  for posting fake online reviews praising their own products and criticizing competitors. The media also didn't seem to care that hackers busted the new iPhone security finger print feature quite easily.

BlackBerry faces an uphill battle, if even the local media is not informing the public of illegal business practices by Samsung, and security flaws with iPhone. Especially when BlackBerry's claim to fame remains secure and reliable messaging. Now with a strong product line, it's time for BlackBerry to pick up the ad budget.

    I can't believe Samsung got away with paying for piles of fake reviews and it doesn't even make the news. That's a huge story. The Chinese government fined them. In China, typically it's anything goes for Asian companies to gain an edge, but Samsung went too far for even them. BlackBerry is an honest Canadian company, and their current line up of phones is as good as anything from Asia. I don't think it's just BlackBerry needing to advertise more, it's us demanding our local paper covers stories like foreign companies paying for fake reviews and beating our local company by dishonesty. It's our demanding the media stop making up mean BlackBerry stories everyday and ignoring down right criminal behavior from the competition!
