Protest photos and right-wing denial

I pointed out earlier that several reactionary bloggers are pushing the meme that no-one went to the DC anti-war rally this weekend. Think Progress noticed, too, and posted some aerial photos of the protest. I think it's pretty obvious that there's at least a turnout of 100,000. Will this stop the spread of the bogus stories about low attendance? Of course not. Also keep in mind that the pro-Bush turnout was about 400 people.
