CARACAS, Venezuela — Hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans jammed a major highway intersection Saturday to show their support for presidential candidate Manuel Rosales, vowing to vote the incumbent Hugo Chavez out of office in Dec. 3 elections.

Shouting "Dare To Change!" and waving red, yellow and blue Venezuelan flags, marchers departed from various points in the city of 5 million and converged on the Francisco Fajardo Highway, where they danced to Venezuelan folk music booming from loudspeakers and chanted anti-Chavez slogans.

The crowd filled the highway and overpasses and extended far down several converging streets while Rosales spoke from a stage in the middle of the masses.

NOTE: BBC NEWS quantitates the turn out of this march: "Tens of thousands of people have marched through the Venezuelan capital..."

Hundreds of thousands to tens of thousands...is this an example of the journalistic interpretation of the truth?
