If "Masses" can be considered all of ONE REPORTER!
That photo is 100% legit. AP backed it up:
Only one reporter from The Associated Press, Canseco’s lawyer, a photographer and four camera crews attended the news conference. All but two of the 100 seats were empty.
Jose made the mistake of calling the press conference to talk Manny Juicing Manny, not Hong-Man Choi. Makes the news conference picture funnier, don't you think?
(I pity the AP reporter who drew the short straw)
