CBS News: estimated 215,000 attend Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear
CBS News estimated 215,000 attended the rally organized by Comedy Central late night stars Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert last Saturday in Washington. The news organization based its estimate on a report from AirPhotosLive.com, which uses aerial pictures taken over the rally and which, the company says, has a margin of error of plus or minus 10 percent. During the rally, Stewart joked that there were 10 million Mall attendees.
CBS News had commissioned the same company to come up with a crowd estimate for Glenn Beck's August rally on the Mall and reported the company estimated that crowd at 87,000.
Here is the CBS News report.
