Tea party protesters today filled the West Lawn of the Capitol in a quickly-convened protest against the Obama administration’s health care reform bill.
According to the Los Angeles Times:
Clogging the sidewalks and streets of Capitol Hill were at least hundreds — no official estimate was yet available — of loud, furious protesters, many of them tea party opponents of the health care overhaul.
Hundreds of people were clogging the sidewalks and streets of Capitol Hill? MSNBC said:
Located at the West Front of the Capitol in the grassy area below the steps, are according to two Capitol Hill Police officers [sic. Don't they teach these kids grammar these days?] between 1,500 to 2,000 Tea Party protesters.
“1,500 to 2,000″?
Yes, it’s time for another game of “Legacy media, let’s estimate that crowd.”
So let’s apply the same methodology.
