I attended the Chicago rally yesterday. The crowd was huge, it filled the plaza.I spoke with the police that were there (many sympathetic and supportive, by the way) and they guessed at 3000. Today I checked the website for “stand up” and it said 3600.
The Chicago Tribune–in its “online” format–had a small article that stated their were “hundreds” in attendance and later “about 500” which was absurd, but about what I expected from the MSM.
I do not think there was anything mentioned on local TV. I did see that Fox New Channel covered the DC rally and talked about the 150+ rallies around the country on their 5;00 news show nationally. It ran for about one minute (my guess).
I did count the “opposition forces” across the street. There were 17 of them.
