Another example of CNN lying about Tea Party rally numbers!

CNN's Fredricka Whitfield certainly didn't think the crowd was worth much of a mention, estimating that only "hundreds of people, at least dozens of people," turned out for it. By contrast, concluded that the event drew "as estimated 20,000 Tea Partiers" to a windswept desert lot.

Why would CNN do that? Trying to protect Sen. Reid:

Saturday's Tea Party Express event in the hometown of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was downplayed by much of the media -- perhaps because the only incidents of violent behavior among the large crowd seemed to come from angry supporters of Mr. Reid.


Another fine example of CNN bias and outright lying about the conservatives/tea parties. Another reason they distort or lie... Sarah Palin. There is no way they are going to help get the word out that Palin is a force to be dealt with (other than attacking her everyday).

There is video showing the crowds etc:

So your complaining about how CNN is distorting the number of tea party protestors and how they can't be trusted... and yet you reference your sources from a rightwing blog? Isnt that rather hypocritical? In anycase whether its 20,000 or 35,000 its still a good turn out, so why get offended? Is this just an excuse to attack anything and everything not tea part orientated?

Have you seen on the internet and on the MSM how many people showed up to the immigration rally.

200,000 was the stated numbers.

Let us do a little comparison pictures shall we.

This is supposed to be 200k people

and this is supposed to be 70k people

More like there was 50k at the immigration rally at the WWAYY high end

And at the 9/12 rally more like 2 million

But who is counting, certainly not the MSM, accurately anyway!
