    I remember when Ron Paul supporters had the Revolution March last summer and 20,000 people came from all over the country and marched on D.C. They completely covered the street and had a great lineup of speakers, but there was not one mention in any of the mainstream media outlets about it. Don’t rely on the mainstream media (MSM), citizen journalism is the future.

    I would just like to point out that there were 60,000 to 70,000 people at that demonstration no where near 1 million.

    Just because your numbers come from a British newspaper does not mean that they are any more accurate than what pundits like Glen Beck provide, Beck’s had allot to do with the organization of this event so he would inflate the numbers as much as he thought he could get away with. The point is double check your sources. For instance my figures come from ABC, the Washington Examiner puts the number closer to 100,000. The only sources that put it any higher then 100,000 are conservative news outlets with connections to the planning of the event, even conservative Bill O’Riley puts the number at 75,000.

    This isn’t the first mass demonstration at the capitol that has gone with little notice… and it does not necessarily have much to do with the political ideology behind the movement. I remember being at a large demonstration that shut down several areas of DC that only had a brief mention in the Washington Post, a blurb in the local news, and detail reporting by China’s Xinhua news, lol

    It probably just didn’t seem that marketable… the news business afterall does have to sell sell sell
