Lots of hilarious number fudging by the liberals since yesterday’s “one nation” rally with the nutcase Ed Schultz in charge. They really really hoped for a large turnout:
Noting that they began planning their rally in April, organizers said they were not responding to a march organized by Glenn Beck, which drew enormous crowds to the front of the Lincoln Memorial on Aug. 28. But they acknowledged that their hope was to draw an even larger crowd to Saturday’s event.
Buuuuuut, things didn’t turn out so well:
(Check out Verum Serum for a animated picture contrasting the two pictures)
Organizers claimed they had as many participants as Beck’s rally. But Saturday’s crowds were less dense and didn’t reach as far to the edges as they did during Beck’s rally.
The 4-hour event organized by civil rights groups and labor unions was a counterweight, albeit a smaller one, to the recent rally of conservatives organized by TV commentator Glenn Beck.
This kind of evidence didn’t matter to the wackjobs at Crooks and Liars tho who proclaimed there were “more supporters than Glenn Beck’s much ballyhooed rally.”
And while the AP and UPI were honest in there reporting of size, MSNBC was not. They edited out portions of an AP article that proved the rally was weak and small. Compare the original AP report and the version of that same report MSNBC decided to edit. (h/t Confederate Yankee)
