When 50 is greater than 2,000

BOO TO MOST mainstream media outfits for not covering the interfaith pro-life rally at the PICC grounds yesterday.

A very conservative estimate of the rally’s attendees is 2,000. CBCP News estimates it to have been 5,000. [Photos of the event]

Attended by various groups, including Muslims, Catholics, and some Christian denominations, the rally was among the pro-life block’s largest.

The only online MSM which reported particularly on the rally are the Manila Times and Malaya.

What else do we have in the news today?

The last two stories are acceptable, even with their very brief mention of yesterday’s rally. But the first? GMA News Online chose to publish a 343-word story about a rally with 50 attendees instead of a rally with thousands.

–Wait, did you say “bias”?
