Through the end of last week, MSNBC host Ed Schultz believed Saturday's One Nation march was going to be a hit. On Friday he predicted that the liberal rally was going to draw "over 300,000":

You might remember that he made a similar prediction on his radio show in early September:

At least he's consistent. However, as we have pointed out, even the mainstream media is estimating rally attendance between 100,000 to 200,000, and has pointed out that Glenn Beck's 8/28 rally drew far more.

The Washington Post goes as far as to reference the event's organizers as saying the rally "drew a crowd of 175,000 people," and then adds an interesting caveat: "about what they expected."

Unfortunately for Ed, that could mean two things: neither WaPost nor event organizers listen to, or watch, his show.

Either way, the unofficial-official estimation from "event organizers" raises an interesting question: will Ed admit that his "over 300,000" prediction -- on two occasions -- was wrong?
