    Heh.

    As Breitbart’s Joel Pollack investigates, both The Wall Street Journal and Politico reported that President Obama’s Saturday rally in Milwaukee, Wisconsin drew a crowd of 18,000 supporters.

    That’s at least a bit odd, since the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal reported that the President was speaking at a 5,000-seat arena . The report added that “thousands more who sat in bleachers and stood on the pavement,” but made no mention of the abnormally large 18,000 estimate.

    But where did national reporters get their numbers? Probably from the White House pool report, which reported that an Obama campaign official told the pooler that Democratic Mayor Tom Barrett said that the crowd was 18,000.

    This is happening more and more - not only at the national convention. And the media goes along with it, refusing to show full shots of the poor crowds Obama is drawing.

    At the same time, the media is doing everything possible NOT to show the large and enthusiastic crowds Romney/Ryan are drawing. This is a clear sign of what will happen in November.
