Breitbart is reporting the media is going to great lengths to make it appear President Barack Obama is drawing big crowds in his re-election bid. The latest example came Saturday on Obama’s trip to Wisconsin.
“The contradiction was first noted by battlegroundwatch.com. Local media, including theMilwaukee Journal-Sentinel, reported that Obama had addressed “supporters who filled the 5,000-seat BMO Harris Pavilion, along with thousands more who sat in bleachers and stood on the pavement beyond the protection of the roof, even as wind and rain lashed down in the latter moments of the near 30-minute speech.”
The pavilion was not “filled”–a local reporter for Patch.com filmed empty seats in the bleachers at the side of the arena (see above). Nevertheless, the Journal-Sentinal played it safe, putting attendance at roughly 5,000-plus, a small but respectable turnout.”
