An organizer of the Women’s March said that the media would want to report that they didn’t have enough protesters at their event.
Women’s March organizer Tamika Mallory implied at a protest outside National Rifle Association (NRA) headquarters on Friday that the media is biased against anti-Trump protesters.
“I’ve had at least two camera folks say that it doesn’t look like we have a lot of people here today and we do,” Mallory said. The organizer then ordered the protesters to realign so they could show their numbers to be bigger.
“We know that the media has a tendency to report what they want to report, and they’ll say that the numbers were a little thin,” she continued. “We want to make sure that it’s clear that people came out in the 90-plus degree weather to stand with us today.”
“We don’t want to trust that you might show the crowd. We want to know that you have no choice but to show who is here,” Mallory told the media.
Protesters at the demonstration numbered in the hundreds, which is a far cry from the hundreds of thousands that the anti-Trump protests drew in January.
