Yes- the same stories are often portrayed very differently in different countries.

I know a guy who, when going to a fund-raising event at a hospital in jedi gear with his other jedi friends and a guy in a jar-jar costume, was reported by a newspaper to be "Three wizards (jedi) with magical staffs (lightsabers) and a dragon(Jar Jar)". Who on earth mistakes Jar Jar freakin' Binks for a dragon? Not much needs to be said. Having said that,
I went to a PSC march once (One of the only ones I went to before realizing how much of a work out it is. Maybe again after someone invents the hover-chair.) and so many people must have turned up, there were press standing around in a few locations and some people being interviewed, so we thought it'd get good coverage, there must've been 100,000 people there easily. But the closest the press got to was "over 50,000" one of the main ones, I think it was The Sun or something I can't remember simply said "thousands", having been there myself and seen how many people were there, I never trust the press after that.
