This is a question aimed at the OWS website which is the only website I've seen to publicly announce the turnout as 30,000 people. Every other news organization has either failed to list the amount of marchers, or stood by Bloomberg's quote of "there were far fewer protestors than we had imagined." My question is aimed to find out exactly how the figure of 30,000 was calculated - and if that figure is true, you must get the accurate figures out to the mainstream press in order to inspire the average citizen to your cause. Right now the mainstream media seems to blatanly distort OWS as a violent movement aimed at disruption that is supported by a small group of hooligans.
