It was widely and repeatedly reported on Tuesday, inauguration day, that 75% of Americans were watching the inauguration. I found that to be to high to believe at the time. I kept on hearing the same number reported, much like they were all reading from the same script.
Today there is an article that the inauguration of Barack Obama did not even come close to the number of people who tuned in to the inauguration of Ronald Reagan in 1981. And there are certainly many more people in the U.S. now that in 1981.
