I've written to Washington Post about their March For Life Misreporting
UPDATE:I've written to the folks at the Washington Post about their inability to count... will update if we hear back from them.
A side note: I realize the "National Mall" extends past 7th Street to 3rd Street, yet the WaPo report also clearly states "the Mall was filled with people." Had it been filled only "between Seventh Street and the Washington Monument," the reporter would likely not also have written "the Mall was filled with people." This newspaper, like New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo and most newspapers, is too much against anyone who is against abortion. They have no predilection to honestly report any truth that could paint pro-life folks in positive or impressive ways. No, they would have instead just written that "the Mall was just over half-filled, or five-eighths filled."
Even if that had been the case, five-eighths of "1.15 million participants" is still about 720,000 people.
In sub-zero-windchill, gusting-wind, 6-inches-of-snow weather, for about 5 or 6 hours.
Versus sunny, spring-breezy, a high of 75 degrees and a low of 52, for April 25, 2004.
Maybe now the WaPo can understand why saying "thousands" marched for life on January 22nd, is so transparent and insulting to us, while also making them look foolish and inept.
"Thousands." Yeah, Seven-Hundred and Twenty Thousand to over One-Thousand times a Thousand.
And, as I've said once before, they pay those "journalists" the big bucks.
