CNN getting caught in it's own lie

As expected, crowds of protestors have greeted President Bush in Italy, where he is on a state visit ahead of this weekend's D-Day anniversary ceremonies in France.

CNN is reporting that protesters are numbering around a half-million.

Protesters swarmed the streets of central Rome after Bush met with Pope John Paul II, one of the strongest critics of the war. Police estimated the number of demonstrators at 500,000.
While the BBC has the number of protesters at a far more realistic 25,000, also based on police estimates.
Organisers say 150,000 people have turned out for the protest, while police put the figure at 25,000.
So which is it, CNN? 25,000 or a half-million? Anything to slander Bush and further your own so-called unbiased agenda?

Hey, don't get worked over error of an order of magnitude difference. The important thing is to make Bush look bad.
