"Tens of Thousands" Protest Pope in Turkey

A few days ago, I read a report that a hardline Islamic political party in Turkey was organizing a mass protest. The organizers expected at least 100,000 in a show of solidarity and strained vocal cords.

Well, as this Reuters article tell us, tens of thousands did show up to protest the Pope. Actually, it was only 25,000. How 25,000 (which could itself be an exaggeration) can be considered, in all honesty, 'tens of thousands', I will never know. Once again one finds modern mainstream journalism wanting.
