DC Anti-War Rally: C-SPAN says 500,000 There
TruthOutOrg: William Rivers Pitt says: "First CNN says this: A CNN.com article says, "More than 2,000 people gathered," for the protest. Ye Gods, ya think so? Whoever wrote that article should maybe tune in to the TV station they work for. There are 2,000 people on about 20 feet of sidewalk ... for a dozen blocks. Then CNN Headline News is reporting that this is the largest anti-war protest in DC since the war started... and then CNN is reporting that 600,000 people were here... and finally, C-SPAN is reporting the crowd size at 500,000. I trust their numbers." Yeah, I think I'll trust C-SPAN's estimate, but I'm willing to bet that the Freako Freepers will be vomiting out that 2000 number REPEATEDLY.
