NYT Reports Rally Crowd in Thousands, Daily Mail Says Two Million

It goes without saying the Obama-loving media are going to do everything in their power to downplay Saturday's Taxpayer March on Washington, and the New York Times is certainly living down to such expectations.

As evidence, consider the Times headline,"Thousands Rally in Capital to Protest Big Government."

Thousands?

That's certainly not how Britain's Daily Mail saw it (h/t NBer MrShy and reader Keith Brown):

Up to two million people marched to the U.S. Capitol today, carrying signs with slogans such as "Obamacare makes me sick" as they protested the president's health care plan and what they say is out-of-control spending.

The line of protesters spread across Pennsylvania Avenue for blocks, all the way to the capitol, according to the Washington Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency.

By contrast, the Times reported:

The demonstrators numbered well into the tens of thousands, though the police declined to estimate the size of the crowd. 

Even the picture the Times used downplayed the event:

Here's the picture the Mail published:

Which outlet do you think is reporting this more accurately?

If your answer is the Mail, why would a British outlet better estimate the size of this crowd than one of the leading American papers?

Yes, that's a rhetorical question.
