Do You Believe the MSM, Or Your Lying Eyes

Hundreds of MSM articles reported that "tens of thousands" of Shiite protesters congregated in Najaf recently to protest the "American occupation" of Iraq. Does this look like "tens of thousands" to you?

The Multi-National Forces Iraq estimates that it is more like 5 - 7,000 people. Looks that way to me, too.

This sort of thing happens all the time. Personally, I'm getting kind of sick of it.

Update: The AP quotes an Iraqi policeman who estimates the number to be 600,000. Now why would they do that? Don't bother answering.
