Matt Kibbe, president of the astroturfing agency known as FreedomWorks, told the teabaggers assembled in Washington that ABC News had reported crowd size as 1 million to 1.5 million people. Problem is, ABC never said that: “At no time did ABC News, or its affiliates, report a number anywhere near as large. reported an approximate figure of 60,000 to 70,000 protesters, attributed to the Washington, D.C., fire department. In its reports, ABC News Radio described the crowd as “tens of thousands.” Nevertheless, right wing blogs all over the place keep repeating the 1.5 million number. But they’ve gone further than making up numbers; they’ve actually faked photos.”

Not that is particularly a shocker.
