Has the US Leftist Press Ever Gotten a Crowd Count Wrong Favoring the Right?

I have been following for years the Leftist press in this country time after time distort crowd counts on behalf of their bias. They boost crowds for leftist rallies/protests and artificially lower crowd counts of conservative rallies/protests. Of course that assumes they even cover the conservative gatherings at all or get the message accurate if they do. Looking across several news sources you get:

The Wash-Post gives the number "Thousands"
The New York Times gives an ambiguous number "Sea of Protesters" and later mentions "tens of thousands".
CNN reports "Tens of Thousands"

Then oddly enough the Dailymail from the UK of all places lists the crowd as "up to 2 million". I guess only domestic news sources got the memo.

I did see in two of the sources comments on the lack of an official count. CNN states "An official crowd estimate was not available, but reporters at the scene described the massive crowd as reaching the tens of thousands." The NYT states "the police declined to estimate the size of the crowd". I will have to pay closer attention in the future, but I never recall seeing such comments for Liberal leaning gatherings. Were the police told not to get an authorized count?

I don't ever recall the media getting a crowd count wrong that slights the left or favors the right. I have seen numerous times where the count slights the right or favors the left. I guess this goes along the lines of whether the bank or IRS ever makes a mistake in your favor. Not likely.

As for the numbers. Here are a few pics to give an idea (from Newsbusters and WorldNetDaily):

    Hey Pal,
    Two things first off you are right about the bias of the press on BOTH SIDES. Faux News=RIGHT, MSNBC=Left. The rest who knows as I remember they were all KISSING Bush's and the Rights ass after 911.

    Also, I'm sure that Faux News inflated the numbers by a few HUNDRED thousand as this was Beck's and his corporate handler's brain child.

    Don't Believe the hype..FROM EITHER SIDE!!

    I did not mention Fox News in my post.

    Yes, I know that is why I asked you why you didn't state the numbers they gave.

    I would do the following equation for any numbers given by Faux News,Flush, Swill O'Reilly, Beck etc.

    Right wing Rallies: divide by 2 and then you'll have the accurate number.

    Left Wing gathering take the number and multiply by 2

    As was stated by Joe BOB Wilson about Fox News "YOU LIE"...oh sorry he meant that UPPITY black guy. hahaha

    Forget the U.S. Media as they are owned by the Corporations that ALL have an agenda. You’re better off with foreign sources most of the time

    I did not see Fox's numbers. If you think I should go with foreign sources then there were up to 2 million people there as DailyMail is a foreign source.

    As for Joe Wilson, I don't think it was the best thing to have that outburst, but he was correct that Obama was lying. There is nothing to prevent illegals from accessing ObamaCare if it passes. In fact Dems have blocked all efforts by the GOP to specifically prevent such access. Sure there is verbiage about not allowing it, but there is no mechanism to prevent it. No ID or proof must be shown. No, Dems only require such proof before getting into their town hall meetings.

    Yet another of your lame attempts to claim this is based on racism is noted and again rejected. Conservatives would be just as hostile to a Dem president if he had a lily white ass.

    That clown is your typical southern "thinly Veiled" cross burner. My mother was from SC and no matter what she or anyone (especially the older generation) from there said the culture there is and always will be racist. Let me assure you that many of the people from the South still think the goddamned Civil War is going on, and with a uppidty Black man in the white house it only confirms their unspoken fears.

    Face it, the GOP is the party of the OLD, WHITE and RACIST. Don't think so??? How many Black or Brown faces did you see in your TEABAGGER rally in DC? Did you see any Black or Brown faced malcontents yelling and screaming at those GOP ORCHESTRATED Beer Hall Putsch/Town Hall Meetings? The young people of today, the ones that voted for Obama, have had it with the same Old obstructionist/ no answers crapola that the GOP has to offer. The real face of the GOP is Flush Limplard, fat, old, white, divisive.

    Yep pal you and your ILK are almost extinct, don’t think so? The demographic stats say something different.

    instead of worrying if Joe Wilson harbors any secret racism in his heart, people should look at the charge by Wilson that Obama lied and see if it has any merit.

    I really don't want to be hearing reports for years in the future how Wilson was right and that illegals are accessing Obamacare and bilking us of even more billions.

    This charge of racism by you, Jimmy Carter and others in the media smacks of the Spanish Inquisition and Salem Witch trials where those in authority made accusations of the secrets of the heart.

    If those must cry racism, at least say it along with commentary on what those they are accusing are saying. Otherwise it is simply a thinly veiled dodge and shows they have nothing to offer in an intelligent debate.

    A further statement on this race thing, I would claim that more racism has emanated from Obama than has been exhibited against him.

    The race card is an intellectually weak claim that desperate people are using in the absence of fact based and reasoned argument.
