If you are a New York Times reader, then you believe 1,500 people protested for fair elections in Astrakhan today.
But if you rely upon Reuters or the Associated Press, then you think it was 2,000.
On the other hand, if you’re an AFP person, then you understand it was 4,000. Of course, that depends on which AFP reporter you are talking to, because some of them say it was actually 3,000.
Let’s put it this way. If MSM journalists can’t even count consistently, what chance is there that anything else they say will be even vaguely correct?
