US Politics: Media Reports On Inauguration Attendance 2009 vs 2017 - Not 'apples for apples!'
Still Trying to Discredit Pres Trump, Media manipulates photo images and attendance data - Brit Hume Calls them out!
1-21-17, IJR - The battle of optics between the new White House and the media has begun. The issue, ultimately, is a symbolic one and displays how 'low they'll go.'
Fox News anchor Brit Hume, who was in attendance on Inauguration Day states that the photos being used by the media are deceptive for one particular reason:

"I was in the building at the bottom of picture on right yesterday. Shot was taken early, area was considerably fuller by time of speech."
President Trump's Sean Spicer said media malpractice is an “attempt to sow divisions at a time when Mr. Trump was trying to unify the country, warning that the new administration would hold them to account.”
Analysis of the numbers:
Two major factors in Obama's favor for address turnout are the Democratic leanings of the D.C. metropolitan area, as well as support from the African American community in the area, which is immense. Explanations for a difference in audience sizes aside, determining Trump's Inauguration Day crowd attendance could turn out to be a bit trickier than Politifact claims. Even TV viewership was dampened as many school systems blacked out the Trump Inauguration.
A proxy comparison of the Obama and Trump Inaugural Addresses is the metro traffic for that day. CNN reported the estimate given by the Washington transit authority, or WMATA, that 193,000 trips had been taken as of 11 a.m. in 2009, while some 513,000 trips had been taken as of the same time on Inauguration Day 2017.
In terms of tickets alone, 250,000 were distributed for the Trump Inaugural Address, which is approximately the same as past addresses. Then, there is attendance on the mall itself, which can be the majority for such an event; as noted above, there were sections closed off for Trump's address for security reasons. More here:
