From the vault - elementary counting

702 ABC Sydney – Afternoons – 6 September 2007
The complaint
A listener complained that reports of the numbers present at a student demonstration were
exaggerated and inconsistent with reports on other news services.
While it was made clear in the report that the figure of a thousand demonstrators was an
estimate, the ABC acknowledged that the figure cited was inaccurate and subsequent reports
had put the figure at around 200-300 demonstrators.
