Media Put 18,000 in Not-Quite-Full 5,000-Seat Arena for Obama in Wisconsin
Breirbart.com ^

Posted on 09/23/2012 8:40:12 AM PDT by Perdogg

President Barack Obama is having trouble drawing large crowds on the campaign trail. At the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, his campaign was forced to move his acceptance speech from the 74,000-seat Bank of America Stadium to the 20,000 Time Warner Cable Arena, citing weather as the excuse. But the media are always eager to help--for example, putting 18,000 people inside a 5,000-seat arena at an Obama event in Milwaukee on Saturday.

They take up less space if they’re dead. Heck, he could have had the entire Cook County death register in there with him, for all we know.

On Breitbart they have a link to a Patch (local online news) video. One or two crowd shots and a few interviews (I had the sound off - wanted to keep my breakfast down thank you very much)

This is the Summerfest grounds....looking at few people milling by in the background will give you an idea of how pathetically small this gathering was.

And on a Saturday???? I took a day off to take my girls to Danny Gokey day a few years back and the entire grounds was packed.

I would venture a Captain and Tenille Revival would have gathered more folks to the Summerfest grounds on a Saturday afternoon - with a cover charge even.

The seating configuration is set up in a bowl shape, with seating for 5,000 (2,500 bleachers; 2,500 seats)Covered

How can you tell when a politician is lying? His lips are moving...

How can you tell when the media is lying? They’re reporting on something....

Anymore, about the only thing I trust from the LSMSM are the ads. At least the law requires advertisers to be (mostly) truthful...

Obama math.
Kind of like the 11% current unemployment rate (counted the way it was 2008); being counted as 8.3% instead (today).

But Obama is different. He is not a politician. Oh yeah, that doesn't work any more. That was last campaign's promise. Never mind....

At the rate he is going, Obama could NOT fill a one-hole outhouse & the media would claim he had an ‘overflow’ crowd of thousands.’

A DemonRat shill just threw out the 18,000 crowd figure again on Fox.

The 2nd-string Fox Sunday anchor just let it go. Most of these Fox guys aren't armed with the truth anyhow, plus they want so desperately to appear "fair and balanced" they let the Obama crap slide right through without question, not even a raised eyebrow.

The Dem operatives are in full lying mode now, they don't even bother to disguise it any more. Problem is that the opposition GOP guys in the interview tell the truth when they get a word in edgewise...... and the Fox anchors let the Republicans get away with telling the TRUTH without comment, also! Crazy, huh!

Yep it's just free-love and fairness all the time on the network....and just as cock-eyed and dangerous.

Fox News is now going crazy with allowing unchallenged Dem talking points and out-and-out fabrications on show after show. It's getting to be 24-hour freak show cycles......and most of Fox's news segments are so replete with alarming numbers of twisted Dem mouthpieces and snake-oil "strategists" that they virtually are unwatchable.

Thanks for this, Perdogg.
On the way home form church this AM, I heard on Fox an interview between Doug Mcelway (?) and some Obambot campaign puke on the state of the campaigns. The Obambot said it’s not abt the polls but the turn out at events and said 18,000 turned out in WI so WI is not in danger of going Pubbie...
Once again, the POS Obambots LIED...!
Thanks for keeping it real.

The newly built BMO Harris arena (located north of the Marcus Amphitheater) seats 2500 in the blue section and another 2500 in the section behind it. This is where the 0bama event was.



The Marcus Amphitheater has a capacity of 23,000. The BMO Harris arena is now located on the right of this photo where the ferris wheel is.



These photos are from Sunday morning Masses at Irishfest:

Since the BMO Harris arena is new, the national media must of assumed that the event was in the Marcus Amphitheater and calculated 80% of 23,000, getting the number of 18,000. The actual attendance was actually closer to only 4,000 people. The average attendance on an average day at Summerfest is about 100,000.
