SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga (The Adobo Chronicles, San Fernando Bureau) – It was the same concert rally, reported by two news sources both known to be sympathetic to the Leni Robredo-Kiko Pangilinan campaign. But their crowd estimates varied significantly.
The Inquirer estimated the crowd that attended the event in Pampanga at 100,000, but Rappler, the least-trusted news brand whose CEO is a convicted criminal, had more than double that number, reporting a crowd of 220,000!
The Adobo Chronicles reached out to the Leni-Kiko campaign and asked them how they come up with crowd estimates at their rallies.
A spokesperson for the campaign said, they go for the highest bidder.
Now you know.
