Is Claim Left-a-Palooza Turnout Was ‘Bigger Than Beck’ True? Yes and No

Radio host/activist Joe Madison, after being introduced by Ed “Who?” Schultz at yesterday’s “One Unionized Nation” rally, said, “They sent in a satellite image of the crowd — somebody go tell Glenn Beck there are more people here right now than there was [sic] on the 29th!”

It was refreshing to hear a completely honest, non-inflated assessment of the crowd size.

I don’t doubt Mr. Madison’s claim for a second, because here’s how many people were in the Mall to see Glenn Beck on August 29th:


That’s because Beck’s “Restoring Honor” gathering was on August 28th.

Even if we compare apples to apples on the correct dates, the Associated Press isn’t even buying the “bigger than Beck” claims.

I can understand the confusion as to crowd size though — from a satellite photo, all those pieces of paper, socialist flyers and union placards littering the ground could be easily mistaken for people.

Here’s a “compare and contrast.”
