    I've heard multiple conservative pundits trying to demean it on their radio and TV talk shows.

    Plus many other channels and news sites. Do a Google News search for "Rally to Restore Sanity" and notice how many news sources there are.

    I've even caught a few articles in newspapers about it, so I'm sure many other newspapers around the country have been talking about it.
    Opera gave tickets to the rally and round trip airline tickets to one of Jon Stewarts entire audiences.

    Guess I heard right. From the day of the rally.

    Organizers insisted the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear wasn't about politics.Laughs, activism blending at Stewart-Colbert rally - Yahoo! News
    Only 60,000. Anyone disappointed?

    So it is supposed to be non-political, but this is hilarious:

    There’s the real irony: While this rally seeks to make fun of Tea Party activists who advocate for freedom, Comedy Central is looking to tightly control the event as much as possible. Lame.

    Irony reaches new heights as Comedy Central is going to “strictly prohibit filming” of the Rally to Restore Sanity/March to Keep Fear Alive. PJTV’s Washington Bureau chief Richard Pollock inquired with the Comedy Central’s senior vice president of corporate communications Steve Albani about receiving credentials. Albani claimed that Pollock would not be given credentials because of limited supply, and as such there would be no room on the “press riser” for PJTV’s camera and crew. When Pollock said that he’d be fine with filming not on the press riser, Albani said that filming would be “strictly prohibited” between 3rd and 7th streets on the National Mall (ground zero for the event). The email exchange is further down.

    ...

    You don’t need credentials to film an event open to the public on federal land that has already permitted other media outlets. Comedy Central has not leased the National Mall, nor could it...

    In fact, the Tea Party movement has done a bang-up job allowing as many kooky reporters and camera-toting people into their rallies, and simply found ways to deal with it without clamping down on free press...

    Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally granted 450 such credentials to journalists, but in the brief contact NewsBusters had with Beck’s staff there was no indication that any reporter who had requested credentials had been turned down.

    Re: It's Official Jon Stewart & Colbert will host a rally on October 30th in DC

    There were people with Cameras all over the outside borders of the Rally. I didn't even bother to try to get ONTO the mall.

    From what little I could hear, and it was little...the speaker system sucked...it didn't seem like Stewart and Colbert were making it political.

    However their fans did not exactly do a good job of hearing Stewarts message about the point of this event. I'd say in regards to signs there that I saw the make up would be about 50% humerous/neutral, 45% Left Leaning, and about 5% of right leaning signs. Hardly "non-partisan" on the part of the supporters of it.

    As far as conspiracy nuts, I did see both 9/11 truthers and "Palin didn't really have the baby" people. As far as "hateful" rhetoric you had signs of Palin being called a "teatard" and Christine O'Donnell being called a **** (The c word) as well as one calling her a crazy bitch. Not to mention "**** Glenn Beck" and a sign depicting the Republicans as the devil.

    There were some very humerous ones as well. I enjoyed one with a picture of hitler and under it said "Hitler was Hitler!". I also enjoyed "What do we want? Moderation. When do we want it? In a reasonable time frame!" Also a number of "MY SIGN IS VERY LARGE" and other variations of it. Quite a lot of them gave me a good laugh.

    I'll try to get some pictures up soon.

    I found it interesting that Jon Stewart seemed very reasonable when saying that we need to realize that tea party =/= racist and Williams & Sanchez =/= bigots. Yet the same people falling all over themselves about this rally are the very ones who constantly call tea partiers racist.

    The event being nonpartisan does not mean the attendance would be. Most fans of Stewart and Colbert are young, and the young tend to be liberal.

    As far as conspiracy nuts, I did see both 9/11 truthers and "Palin didn't really have the baby" people. As far as "hateful" rhetoric you had signs of Palin being called a "teatard" and Christine O'Donnell being called a **** (The c word) as well as one calling her a crazy bitch.

    Some people apparently did not get the idea behind the rally...

    There were some very humerous ones as well. I enjoyed one with a picture of hitler and under it said "Hitler was Hitler!". I also enjoyed "What do we want? Moderation. When do we want it?

    The bolded one is awesome! Looking forward to the pictures, thank you for the report.

    Nice generalization there. I think this rally is great, and I don't call the Tea Party racist and have said that here.

    You're right. I meant to say SOME of the people gushing over Jon Stewart and Colbert are the very ones who constantly call tea partiers racist. I thought what I heard of Jon's speech was great. I haven't had time to watch it all since I just got home. Did Colbert speak too? I've only heard about Stewart's.
