    NBC NEWS said it was 300,000.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/29/us...cs/29beck.html

    Officials do not make crowd estimates because they are unreliable and can be controversial, but event organizers put the number of attendees at 500,000; NBC News said it was closer to 300,000, but by any measure it was a large turnout. The crowd stretched from the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument.
    That was yesterday. I'm pretty sure NBC was referring to the permit. The new numbers are coming in a bit lower. Way lower!

    But you can keep clinging to that NYT quote from NBC if it makes you feel better.

    EDIT: Nothing on NBC News website backing up the NYT. They only mentioned the permit number. Check for yourself.

    Or keep clinging to the NYT misquote.

    Hey, 87,000 is not a bad number.

    No, dear. Anyone with half a brain can look at the aerial picture and tell you that it's more than a measley 87,000.

    While the turnout was good, which one would have expected given that Beck has been promoting the gathering for almost a year now, the speech itself wasn't. The “Good Reverend” Beck had no great insights, no new inspiration to share, just rehashing tired out, old clichés about self improvement. I expect that all those Beck followers to be tithing and praying on their knees with the door open from now on!

    Guess you've never been to DC.

    Look, the numbers will come in and we'll split the difference. But no one is standing behind 300k.

    You need U2 and the Boss to get those numbers.

    Hey, Bachman got 1K over by the Washington Monument. Of course, that was after the Beck 'Restitching' Event broke up.

    Wow, Barb had a lead-in of 87K and could only draw 1K, she's losing it.

    Edit: Here's what 200K looks like --

    You assume too much.
    I "assume" nothing. I watch you do it over and over and over. With me, and anyone else who presents you with reasoned arguments you can't refute or questions you can't answer. And the 912 rally figures thread is an excellent example, entirely germane to this. You did the exact same thing then, too.

    lol!

    NBC news

    And, no, they didn't say that was what the permit says. It says NBC estimated the crowd at almost 300,000. You distrust NBC?

    Reasoned Arguments -- again, a (possibly) false assumption.

    Jeez! You've been holding on to that 9-12 deal for a long time -- almost a year. Let it go, bud. It wasn't personal.

    Tell you what, whatever number you came up with is good enough for me. 6 Million-Billion Patriots!! Feel better?

    There were only 200,000 at the inauguration? I heard there was a LOT more than that.

    Show me, Mellie, I just search the NBC site and gave you a link.

    Show me where NBC news said that.
