Caught the waffling of the local NBC news anchor when he said: "thousands, sorry, I meant 100's." He obviously had heard and perhaps said 1,000's earlier and was in some way instructed to downplay the numbers to 100's. Pipeline industry also issued its official statement about how important the pipeline is to Minnesota. Overnight, St. Paul paper revised numbers from 100's to 1,000's. And webpage for NBC local affiliate is trying to have it both ways. A text posted yesterday says 100's. Article coming up just says "Activists." Minneapolis paper: http://www.startribune.com/pipeline-protest-draws-large-crowd-to-st-paul/306373801/ "Activists such as 350.org founder Bill McKibben, Sierra Club President Aaron Mair, and Ojibwe “water walker” Sharon Day — some of whom led the long-running battle against the controversial giant Keystone pipeline — say they hope to turn Minnesota’s pipeline into the next national organizing symbol against tar sands and climate change." Peace, Madeline
