    MSNBC reported right before the rally that Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman and Dick Armey were going to speak. Gee, I must have missed Bachman and Armey. Where did they get that, I wonder....?

    Glenn Beck Rally Attracts Estimated 87,000 - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    AirPhotosLive.com gave its estimate a margin of error of 9,000, meaning between 78,000 and 96,000 people attended the rally. The photos used to make the estimate were taken at noon Saturday, which is when the company estimated was the rally's high point.
    Looks like CBS split the difference along their margin of error.

    I haven't heard any other media dispute these numbers. Seems like most media are keeping it general.

    How big was the crowd at the Glenn Beck rally?
    The Glenn Beck rally on the National Mall Saturday drew between 300,000 and 500,000, according to Beck. CBS News hired a consultant with an expertise in aerial photography and came up with a total of 87,000. Other media outlets either wussed out and just said "thousands" or came up with their own estimates, mostly in the 80,000 to 200,000 range.

    Counting crowds has become a political no-fly zone, and Beck, like organizers of the Million Man March and other such major Mall events, was quick to carp at the news media for failing to offer estimates as large as his own. The size of the crowd has produced divisive arguments over just about every big gathering on the Mall in recent years. (See a gallery of photos of historic crowds on the Mall here.)

    Again, anyone with half a brain who looks at those pictures will say there are more than 87,000 people there.

    Picture #2 - there are people underneath the trees that you can't see from this perspective.

    So my wild stab in the dark - voting for the bottom poll option just for the hell of it - was likely too high.

    It was 3 people that looked over the aerial photos to come up with that consensus estimate, so even if they only had half a brain each there was a combined brainpower of 1.5.

    From one of the three half brains who counted the crowd:

    Yes, I included the crowd areas under the trees; the full-size Airphotolive images were detailed enough to discern the edges of the crowd even there.
    The rest of his write up expounding on the whole issue is a rather interesting read IMO:

    Fulbright in Portugal » Blog Archive » Counting heads

    dismiss it if you want, but this appears to be the most methodologically sound estimate out there (close second is Bachmann claiming that she was there and saw it and will accept nothing less than a million) -and yes it is still an estimate, so take it with a grain of salt, but I personally will use the majority of my salt grains on the others that just seem to be wild speculation.

    all in all the entire crowd size bickering is petty.. a lot of people showed up, a respectable amount went to a good charity, Beck proselytized, people ate it up, others scratched their head and wondered how some people can be so gullible, and I am sure Beck's radio program, tv show, book sales, tshirt sales, and University enrollment saw a nice spike out of the deal.

    Every day I have to laugh (or cry) at how wrong MSNBC gets things. Most of it, I think is intentional (like the racist map thing to Becks rally) However, I think they need to start trying to be a little more accurate or stop spending so much time bashing Fox. MSNBC is about as unbelievable as they come.

    Geez as I just hit send Ed Shultz MSNBC just chopped the hell out of the clip with Beck and Wallace on Beck saying Obama was racist.

    All I can say, after stomaching about 5 minutes of info about the revival in DC, is that I'm even more happy now that I wasted absolutely no time reading about this religious activism stunt. It was pretty much what I pegged it to be: Perfectly pointless and meaningless.
