    Satellites, balloons, and math used to count inauguration crowd

    Satellites, balloons, and math used to count inauguration crowd | Cutting Edge - CNET News
    Steve Doig, a journalism professor at Arizona State University who specializes in crowd counting, said he is estimating there were 800,000 people in attendance, based on a satellite image taken by GeoEye about 40 minutes before the swearing-in ceremony.
    Hmmmm.
    So much hype, now so much egg.

    When will the press learn they don't operate in a vacuum any longer?
    You'd think they'd have learned when Drudge blew the Clinton-Lewinski story Newsweek wanted to bury... but no... they keep on keep'in on.
    The Clintons are what happens...
    when you have NO MORAL COMPASS.

    This sort of thing seems quite common.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
