How the media spins

One of the number one complaints that conservatives have with regards to the mainstream media is math. For years, conservative events can number in thousands of attendees, and yet will be described as a few hundred.  Meanwhile, an activity supported by leftist media could have a few dozen folk and be touted as hundreds. A few hundred become thousands.

And this isn’t a one time event, or even an occasional occurence. It’s darn near policy.  Sure the media would deny it. But we know how it works. Reporter on seen says there were a hundred, the editor tells them to bump it up.  And most Americans blindly trust their journalistic institutions.

But every now and then we catch them with egg on their face. Here is the Connecticut Post caught halfway between it’s own lie.
