50's company, 100's a crowd

VOCM reports on Sunday:

About 50 people gathered Saturday for a public rally against Corner Brook Pulp and Paper's proposed plan to use tire derived fuel.
CBC reported on Saturday:

About 100 people marched through the streets of Corner Brook in western Newfoundland on Saturday morning to protest a proposal from officials at the city's pulp and paper mill.
And the Western Star met both of the broadcasters half way:

About 75 people took to the streets of Corner Brook in a protest march against Corner Brook Pulp and Paper's proposal to burn tire-derived fuel as an alternative energy source Saturday morning.
Perhaps the media outlets could have used the same crack team of accurate and reliable crowd estimators who counted 10,000 people at the totally non-partisan "Trust and Confidence" rally in St. John's the other year.

That very day (rally) I was talking to a friend on , lets say two or three floors down from the "eighth" and he said that if there was anymore than 850 in that crowd , then he was better looking than Robert Redford (he's not).

Did anybody notice that all of the camera shots were taken , panning the crowd , did anyone see any overhead shots ?
