Liberal media hiding vital information

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionI am a little up set with the paper this morning [Feb. 3]. After a major news story broke yesterday [Feb. 2] with the GOP document being released, your front page led off with the flu cases on the rise. If I didn’t stop to read the small print, you would have never known that the Democrats tried to pull a fast one on the American people. It’s a shame that all news outlets are in bed with the liberals. Upstate New York is more Republican then you think. It’s only our inner cities that are liberal. But we are slowly chipping away at that. But as long as they have outlets like yours to try and bury it in small print, it only makes it a little harder.Steven Santore Sr.Ballston SpaEditor’s Note: The 1,033-word, three byline article appeared on the front page, above the fold, with a 40-point headline and two photos.More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusGuilderland girls’ soccer team hands BH-BL first league lossEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristslast_img read more

Ulloa: I’m always ready to play

first_imgSuper-sub Leonardo Ulloa revealed he had just 15 minutes to prepare before his goalscoring heroics as Leicester’s survival bid gathered pace. “After I was starting I was still celebrating with him.” Andy King added a second in the final minute and the Foxes are level on points with 17th-placed Hull with Ulloa insisting confidence his sky high. “We need more points, we know that but we have more confidence now,” he said. “We were starting on the bottom but we have more confidence because we win three games consecutively. “The feeling now is much better than before.” Swansea need a point to net a record points total in the Barclays Premier League having reached 47 this season. They have lost and drawn their last two games and boss Garry Monk admits the pressure is on his players as expectation grows. He said: “Yeah, probably but I’m happy with that, it’s trying to get the players to understand that. There’s more expectation on them this season than any other. This is a big loss for us in terms of what we’re trying to do and what we’re trying to achieve. “We have five opportunities to put it right and every time we’ve had a setback we’ve bounced back and put it right. “I know their commitment, they have been fantastic for me all season. The last five games are a test for us, it’s a test when you achieve something so early. “It’s that next bit, it’s wanting more and how you get to that and that mentality – which a lot of players haven’t had to experience before. “We’ll bounce back for sure.” Ulloa was originally named on the bench and was given minutes to prepare after David Nugent suffered a calf injury in the warm-up. And the 10-goal forward admitted he was forced into a quick change of mindset once he knew he was starting. “I think (I knew) about 15 minutes before kick-off because it was in the final stage of the warm-up when Nuge felt pain to his calf,” he said. “After that they told me. I changed my mentality when the gaffer told me I was starting. “It was a great 30 minutes – maybe the next game is the same. I always want to play and sometimes you cannot but always I am ready for play. “So when the gaffer says to me there is a small problem I am ready for play.” And Ulloa celebrated with the club’s player liaison officer Jon Sanders after a pre-match promise. He said: “Yesterday (Friday) was his birthday and I told him in the warm-up if I am on in the second half for at least 20 minutes I will try to score and celebrate with him. The striker ended a top-flight goal drought stretching back to Boxing Day after scoring the opener in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Swansea. Victory was the Foxes’ third straight Barclays Premier League win and they are now only in the drop zone on goal difference. Press Associationlast_img read more
