C-SPAN Uses 8/28 Crowd Shot for ‘One Nation’ Promo
The Blaze ^ | October 2, 2010 | Meredith Jessup

Posted on 10/03/2010 1:27:13 AM PDT by Nasher

In promoting its coverage of Saturday’s “One Nation” rally in Washington, D.C., C-SPAN’s website offered visitors a peak at what the rally looked like on the ground along the National Mall. But, as Gateway Pundit points out, the image they use to advertise the “One Nation Working Together” rally is actually a cropped Reuters photo taken on August 28 during the “Restoring Honor” rally hosted by Glenn Beck, seen here:

C-Span now joining the fray as they use MSNBC/NYTimes/WashPost tactics by abandoning any objectivity and instead opt to shape the news to suit their Liberal agenda.

So much for Brian Lamb and C-Span's stated goal of "striving for neutrality and a lack of bias in public affairs programming".

Yet more concrete evidence of the absolute corruption of journ-o-lists. They are determined propaganda activists for the left.

That’s amazing. I watched for a little while and one of the hosts, right after Ed left, announced to the crowd that they had satellite photos that showed they had more people than Beck.

Thanks 40, was initially thinking along the lines of simplifying the post but the image does make for "one stop shopping". :)

I'm figuring that C-Span thought that the Beck image would not only cover for the sparse crowds but also convey the false notion that today's crowd wasn't made up of a bunch of Commie lovin' Kooks.

Unfortunately for them, they got caught. Next stop for this story, "Fox News Watch".

I have to say the the obvious MILLIONS of people wearing camo in the first photo is obvious proof that the gun toting pro America crowd is supporting the communist agenda.

Thanks pliney. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Love the name "Communist rally".

If it was in the leftist media to tell the truth they'd call it just that. But it's not and so they won't.

I don't dare click on the link but a Google search revealed the HuffPo is billing it as "Tens of thousands". Clearly it was not so the lies have already begun.

It's in the way they say these things that allow them to fall back later.

EX: ".. announced to the crowd that they had satellite photos that showed they had more people than Beck".

The fall-back RAT answer would be something like .. "We were saying that there were satellite photos that showed .. There were more people at Beck's 8/28 rally than just Glenn Beck".

See how that works? 8)

Let’s face it. We are in a war with the liberal power structure of this country. The government, the media and externally financed PACs. They don’t even bother to show the faintest hint of truth. They mislead, they obfuscate they ‘triangulate’. Now they’re just plain lying in order to feed the empty minds of the trash that vote for them or for their power mad schemes.

Anybody with half a brain would have questioned how they got satellite photos so quickly.

Its just one of those things Beck has been saying lately. Ask yourself who is telling you the truth and who is lying to you. If they're lying, ask your self why.

In these times, there is no room for compromise.
In war, compromise equals surrender.
Make no mistake, we are at war and we must win. This November I would suggest voting for only those who would support and protect the only one and true American way:

· They support the strict enforcement of the Constitution

· The Constitution is not a “living and breathing document”, that it not subject to interpretation or change except through the amendment process.

· Czar or Tsar is a communist title and those positions must be immediately eliminated.

· Any Communist or Socialist program or scheme to “redistribute the wealth” must be rescinded.

· Anyone uttering the words “Workers of the World Unite” should be immediately deported to a communist nation of their choice.

· The Federal Government is to immediately with draw from any and all programs that have not been specifically granted to them by the U.S. Constitution.

· The Federal Government must issue Shares to all tax paying Americans of all companies that received Federal bailout monies.

· One hundred percent of all Tax Revenue is to be used for defense and border security; all other programs will be eliminated with those personnel transferred to border security. This includes large detainment camps to accommodate all illegal aliens now within our borders. All excess funds will then be applied to the national debt.

· All Departments that are not Defense related will be substituted at State level to be outsourced to private companies with four-year renewal contracts. For instance, Park s Management, Public Works, in fact, all infrastructures can be made into an industry instead of a tax burden.

· All monies stolen from the Social Security system are to be immediately repaid.

· No law will be presented for approval that exceeds ten pages.

This short list of initiatives would restore democracy, cure unemployment, wipe out national and personal debt thereby enabling the freedoms and liberties that were always intended by the founding fathers, but have been relentlessly stolen from “we the people.”

SO, according to a logical combination of these photos and the Lamestream Misleadia, if Beck's rally was attended by "87,000 people," then the Commie rally got about what, 700?

LMAO!!!!

Lies with enough predictability to be considered “all the time”. All the false news that is fit to print. Distorting reality so you will be misinformed. So-called journalists are mere apologists and dishonest charlatans. If the “media” had a conscience they would resign en mass. If the “media” says it is sunny outside, I always look out the window before I believe them. Even then, I wonder if they have somehow tricked me.

“We are in a war with the liberal power structure of this country.”

I been saying this for years. The Journolistas are the supply lines for the DNC. Cut off the supply lines and the DNC will fall apart.

Hasten the killing of the MSM by starving their advertisers and launching Alinsky style attacks on the journolistas.

Discredit AP writers. Call and mail local papers that carry AP articles and let them know how you feel.

Attack local papers by calling them out on their liberal use of NY Times/Washington Post reprinted articles. Let the advertisers know this.

If we can keep up the pressure the government will be forced to step in and bail them out. With a Conservative congress, this would get some seriously play.

That’s how you win a war.

It won’t die on its own. We need to help it along. We need the MSM dead and buried for 2012. If we can accomplish this and take both houses and the oval office, we have a shot at turning the country around.

I would add that there are thousands upon thousands of laws that have accumulated since the founding of our nation.

All laws should be reviewed every 10, 15, or 20 years ( take your pick) and allowed to die or passed again.

For years now I have been posting that Marxism is our nation's most serious threat. It is occupying center stage. Islam is waiting in the green room.

That Obama is our purported president isn't our most urgent problem. It's the percentage of the population that voted for him that is really scary!

By the way...If generations of Americans attend government K-12 schools that are socialist-funded, godless, compulsory, prison-like, and a price-fixed cartel, why are we surprised that they vote for Marxists?

I am praying mightily for our nation. Hopefully, God will spare us.

Below is a post at the same site, The Blaze, which gives a link to more photos. The poster mentions that the Glenn Beck rally starts at photo 33, but I think the Glen Beck rally was intermixed with the shots from yesterday much earlier. Sometimes the crowd looks sparse and then other shots show a huge crowd.

“Posted on October 2, 2010 at 9:01pm
BTW… for the folks that would like to see the yahoo slide show… it is now up to 88 photos and at right around 33 it starts dating to the 8/28 rally.

http://news.yahoo.com/nphotos/One-Nation-Working-Together-rally/ss/events/us/100210dcrally#photoViewer=/101002/480/urn_publicid_ap_org_ceada167b4574a439cdbb520af836d95

AND while i Did see the rally for about 20 minutes before I got disgusted when someone came onto the stage saying that the ARIAL photos had JUST come in and they had more people than the Beck rally did…. that is when I said to myself… blah… why are the so concerned about the AMOUNT to people and not the message? Seems to me that the message should matter more than the population.

Then they did a shot down the reflection pond… and I noticed that there were no people under the trees, there were few people behind the speakers and there were quite a few white chairs that were empty. Then I saw the signs….. something about ending war and Racism… “
