Too Much Coverage
I do, as do many other people across Rockaway, buy The Wave on a weekly basis to read up on local news and happenings. In the Friday, October 16, 2009 edition Democratic candidate for City Council Frank Gulluscio and other Democrats received a very generous amount of coverage. By the time I had reached page 15 I had seen two articles on Gulluscio alone, one for Lew Simon's Democrat club, and one for a Bill Thompson fundraiser held by local Democrats (including Gulluscio). In between all this our cur rent City Councilman Eric Ulrich was only featured in one sole article. Councilman Ulrich did not even get that article to himself, but on page 5 was an article featuring Council - man Ulrich and once again his challenger Frank Gulluscio. To be fair, I think The Wave has covered Eric for the most part very fairly since his election, but was the mentioned week a look into what can be a very biased local media? I hope to see Councilman Ulrich and all others covered equally in the future.
