Just when you thought "the media" couldn't make bigger fools of themselves, along comes their buffoonish treatment of the attendance at yesterday's Glenn Beck rally at the Lincoln Memorial. Most danced around the issue, falling back on the stock "thousands" or "tens of thousands" weasels. But there was one twit among them who spilled the beans. CBS went on the record: Glenn Beck Rally Attracts Estimated 87,000.
Fortunately, we have better ways to judge the size of the crowd than to rely on Dan Rather's news organization. MLK's famed 1963 "I Have a Dream" rally was held on the same ground, and the accepted figure is 250,000. (thanks to Dan F)
And Sharpton's rally, which the clowns positioned as the anti-Beck rally, "attracted" 3,000 and was given the same media coverage as Beck's "Restore America." Is it any wonder the American people are misinformed?
OT but related: Martin Luther King would have despised Sharpton.
UPDATE: Cultural filth.
