But, at the end of the day, if we measure the response the way the media counted the Tea Party protests a few years ago (which were truly “Grassroots”), it appears that there were….143.2 protestors. If we measure it the way they counted the “Million Man March” then there were 20, 457, 874.3 attendees. You decide. I’m not sure which method to use.
Was the media coverage planned/did the networks collude?? You betcha. Were the camera views narrow? Yes. Do I believe the numbers the media put forth? No.
Was this theater for the Liberals? YEP. Do I think it swayed anyone not already Anti-Gun? Nope. But it sure stirred up that segment of the people.
