Sandra Fluke Wows 'Em In Reno

First check this story in the Reno Gazette-Journal. Remember that name.

There is no mention of how many people came out to see the Flukester. Correction: I missed the first sentence. It does in fact say "about ten people" came to see her.

The picture focuses on Fluke -- just Fluke. The crowd she's speaking to could be any number you like. It could be vast.

Here's another photo from the... event. From a perspective the Reno Gazette-Journal did not fancy.

The crowd is not vast.

Here's the Daily Caller's coverage.

Sandra Fluke delivers campaign speech to mostly empty parking lot in north Reno

Women’s rights activist Sandra Fluke on Saturday delivered a speech to ten Nevada residents in the mostly empty parking lot of a Sak ‘N Save grocery store in north Reno, taking “center stage” to urge them to vote for President Barack Obama, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal.


The event had been promoted in the Gazette-Journal for days in advance, though the paper did not make it clear whether Fluke would be speaking in the parking lot or the produce aisle.

So the RGJ promoted this appearance for days. Then when she spoke to an embarrassingly small crowd, they edited out any information about attendance, including chosing a picture based primarily on the fact it offered no hints about crowd size.

But they're not biased. They certainly don't give their Designated Heroes favorable coverage and their Designated Villains unfavorable coverage. Nope. It's straight down the middle. They just want to get the story right, you know.

Correction: Much of this post is simply in error, because I missed the first sentence (!!!-- Wow, even the first sentence I blew).

They did report the number of people who came out to see her... generously rounding up to "about ten." (Eight or nine is "about ten." Under a dozen we usually count and don't round to the nearest ten.)

The only leg I have to stand on here is the picture, which does not show the embarrassing crowd size.
