After witnessing the epic showing at Beck’s Restoring Honor rally in DC, yesterday, MSNBC’s lib talker, Ed “Genius Envy”, Schultz was not impressed, stating on his show that the rally was “no big shakes“:
Six months’ promotion, NBC News says 300,000 people. I bet I could do that! I bet I could do that with this radio show and my TV show and six months’ production, six months’ promotion, if I had the budget I could equal that march. I know I could!
I guarantee you, I could do more than 300,000! It ain’t a big deal!
Here’s Beck’s response:

Elsewhere on MSNBC, Newsbusters caught Lawrence (Creepy Liar!) O’Donnell dismissing the size of the crowd at the rally as “just the flow through traffic of tourists.”
On Monday while he was filling in for the seemingly always vacationing Keith Olbermann, O’Donnell told “Countdown” guest Bill Press, “On a typical summer Saturday on the [National] mall, 80,000 is not a big deal.”
Earlier in the program, O’Donnell had referenced CBS’s estimate of 87,000 while conveniently ignoring his sister-network’s (NBC) assessment of 300,000.
“Getting a crowd there is pretty easy,” said O’Donnell. “I’ve been on a lot of film shoots on the mall, and you`ll get 20,000 people watching a film shoot that they didn`t even know was going to happen that day.”
