Photo gives away liberal bias in newspaper

The ultra-liberal Reading Eagle has a story in its Saturday edition about a rally sponsored by a left-wing activist group called Keystone Progress. The news value of the "protest" is questionable. The newspaper ignores many rallies by conservative groups, but it's the photo next to the article that drew my attention. 

The article says 40 people attended the rally. But the photo next to the story shows 1 woman holding a sign and part of a second woman standing near her. If you're going to take a photo of a rally, wouldn't you want to include as many people in it? Especially when only 40 people show up. Either the reporter wrote the story from a press release issued by the left-wing activists or the reporter can't count.
