7,000 or 100,000 protesters?
Issued on: Modified:
Just how many people DID turn out on Sunday for Jean-Luc Mélenchon's march for a "tax revolution"? The leader of the far-left "Front de Gauche" party says 100,000 people took to the streets Sunday. The police say it was just 7,000! An image on social media shows how TV news filmed the march up close, thus making the numbers seem far bigger. Also, a far-right National Front recruitment officer gets caught out lying to journalists. Finally, in the Paris mayoral race, more metro jokes for NKM!
