Dozens, Thousands, What’s the Difference?

CNN apparently reported that “dozens” or maybe “hundreds” of people attending the Tea Party rally in Searchlight, Nevada, which featured Sarah Palin as the speaker. You can find pictures from the American Border Patrol here, which show just how small the crowd really is. As Bruce notes, “[I]t’s not a lie to describe 10,000+ people as ‘dozens’. Just as its not a lie to say Nome, Alaska is ‘within walking distance’ to Miami – it’s just a shitload of walking.” These people are going to be in for a rude awakening come November.

  1. No one is watching these channels anyway!!

    Fox News is far and away number 1, with MSNBC, CNN and Headline News a distant, distant 3rd and 4th.

  2. Something to consider….

    Every time the MSM pulls the stunt of wildly under reporting such events, every person at that event is taught a solid lesson on the quality of today’s major media.

    In other words…. dis 10,000 people in one blow, and create 10,000 people who are certain your network/paper/station is full of merde and not to be trusted. Do that enough… and we just might have us a Movement!

  3. Carteach – sound nice, unfortunately you have to deal with the Gell-Mann Amnesia Effect.

  4. And the irony is that all my left friends refer to Fox like it was a nest of lies and deceit.

    I’m not big on Fox. But CNN, MSNBC, ABC, are so chock full of propaganda, misrepresentations, bias and flat out lies.

    And Fox is the one demonized.

    Been having a debate with a number of friends on the growing divide in America with regards to the Tea Parties and the left.

    And aspects that fuel it. I mean 10 yrs of Bush bashing and everything torn to shreds, investigated, beat a dead horse until it was ground meat, and fabrication of evidence. Than Obama comes in are nearly as extreme just now it’s in the defense of the President.

    Sorry if I consider the mainstream media my enemy. Heck, I haven’t been able to post to most of CNN for several months now.

  5. Hey– All media has some bias. Not bashing ya; just being realistic.

    As far as the bias on CNN, aka The Human Interest Channel, goes, look on the bright side— As long as they continue making a molehill out of the conservative cause, we can operate with far less flak.

    I haven’t met many, but there are slobbering liberals in the general populace too.
