Dual protests in Crawford

CNN and Fox News both had articles today on the dual protests in Crawford, Texas. They have different estimates of the numbers of people at the protests with CNN showing that Cindy Sheehan’s anti-war group had more than Bush but Fox saying the opposite. Here are the specifics:

CNN states that there were about 1,000 Bush supporters. Later in the article it says that more than 1,000 showed up to support Sheehan.

Fox’s AP article says that there were several thousand people with “most in a caravan for a pro-Bush rally.” They later estimate the pro-Bush group at 1,500. For Sheehan’s group Fox says “Organizers estimated the crowd at more than 2,000 but it appeared smaller.”
