Rally to Restore Sanity attracts 215,000, says CBS News
CBS News is estimating that approximately 215,000 people showed up to watch Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert headline the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear in Washington, D.C. Saturday. Though the National Park Service does not commission estimates on crowds, CBS used AirPhotosLive.com to determine a count. (The margin of error stands at 10 percent.) The network also used AirPhotosLive.com in August to estimate the number of people who attended Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally, which attracted approximately 87,000. According to Comedy Central, 4 million streamed the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear online.
