Obama attracted the largest crowd of this election season in red-state Missouri under the St. Louis Arch. As the Wall Street Journal reported:

Lt. Samuel Dotson of the St. Louis Police Department confirmed the number of attendees piled into the grassy lawn by the Mississippi River.

So I wonder why NPR reported that the crowd size was in the 10's of thousands in their original story? (Although as you see in this screen shot, the headline for the All Things Considered Story clarified the size of the crowd.)

Way to go Obama. Americans are ready for a change.
