News Reporting. Fact or Fiction??

There was a "prochoice" march in Dublin on Saturday. I recall reading a headline suggesting that thousands had attended the march in Dublin. On Sunday I found an interesting blog post, which gives a different account of Saturday's march. It seems that many of the "thousands" seem to have been conjured by active imaginations and by an organised social media campaign, set upon rewriting history!

Check out this blog post by Peter Griffin to get a better insight. Link: The Irish Times, our 'paper of record' has some explaining to do after March For Choice debacle yesterday

And that after getting free advertising ahead of the event on a radio station's "news bulletins". Funny how the prolife rallies are completely ignored by the Irish print and broadcast media, while they avidly report pro-abortion events, always exaggerating their importance.
