    Here's Fox News host Neil Cavuto talking with a producer at 12:10PM, recorded on a live mic (update: Cavuto was in Sacramento):
    CAVUTO: Any estimates on how many people are here?
    PRODUCER: No, we're trying to get...
    CAVUTO: There's gotta' be 5,000.
    PRODUCER: Oh, at least. You know, I mean the cops aren't going to tell us, and we've been trying to get ahold of the PR person to give us their number, but I think 5,000. You can say it's starting at 5,000 [unintelligble, but sounds like "and maybe it's more."].
    And here's Cavuto less than ten minutes later, tripling his crowd estimate during his on-air broadcast:
    CAVUTO: I know you cover a lot of these things Shep, so you're probably better at estimating crowd sizes than I am. They were expecting 5,000 here, it's got to be easily double, if not triple that.
    To recap: off-air, Cavuto is recorded estimating the crowd at 5,000, perhaps slightly more. On-air, Cavuto says the crowd is "easily" double or triple that.


    Fox News, they report...you decide.

    I was trying to get a count from a local news source, but I got stuck on this story:

    Nude photos cost cheerleading coach her job - Latest News - sacbee.com

    Carlie Becker is no longer a cheerleading coach at Casa Roble High School.

    Her short tenure at the Orangevale school apparently ended after officials learned that Carlie Becker is also Carlie Christine, Playboy's "cyber girl of the week."

    Cavuto is a bag of douche at baseline, so this doesn't surprise me.

    I can think of a long list of words that could be used to describe that beauty, but "hag" would not be on the list.

    Try doing a google image search for 'Carlie Christine'. :thup: Make sure safe search is OFF.

    BTW, isn't 100% two times, 200% three times and 300% four times?

    Are you getting the point of this article or not? Far be it for me to post something from DailyKos, but come on -- they can't be more intelligent than you are. Or can they? :eusa_eh:
