Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity Losing…

John Stewart’s end of month Rally to Restore Sanity was greeted with rousing approval among the Comedy Central host’s devoted following of viewers when Stewart announced his intentions in September. The announcement was widely seen as a form of counter response to Glenn Beck’s more conservative leaning Rally to Restore Honor in August. At issue for Stewart, and his rally cohort, fellow Comedy Central member Stephen Colbert, is that unlike Beck’s radio and television audience, which numbers over ten million each day, Stewart and Colbert’s audience is far smaller – less than one-fourth that of Beck’s. Still, while Glenn Beck’s Washington D.C. rally drew hundreds of thousands, it is quite plausible to see the Stewart/Colbert rally draw a still-respectable crowd in the tens of thousands. According to Jan Wilcox, a founding member of the Media Sciences Institute at Columbia, such a number is probable, though the resulting impacts of the rally will most likely prove minimal.

“The Glenn Beck rally was truly a significant molding of Atlanta Coupons media, politics, and social concerns, the like of which the 1 ridiculously huge c oupon a day.

That is not the same as what we have been seeing with the upcoming John Stewart rally. The interest in the Stewart event is largely youth-driven, and study after study has shown that with a demographic of people in their teens and twenties, interest beyond self simply does not sustain beyond the immediate event. Simply put, the participant interest in the Rally for Sanity already peaked about two weeks ago. This interest has now been in steady decline. There will be a good sized crowd there – our research indicates around 30,000 to 40,000 people will likely attend the event. Not a small crowd, but certainly far less than the Rally to Restore Honor which we estimate to have attracted a crowd nearing 350,000. More important though is the sustainability of impact for each “rally”. With the Beck rally, it was largely already rooted in an

ongoing political environment that will culminate in the November elections. With the John Stewart rally, it is primarily a parody, or political farce. While entertaining, its impact is simply not sustainable. It is in effect, a fastfood event. Low on nutrition, though quite tasty.”

So a rally advertised by all of Fox’s networks is “authentic,” and you have no actual *data* to back up

your claim besides quoting some wingnut who’s in the tank for Beck and his American Taliban fascists. I love conservative reporting: it’s like Tolkein, but no elves. 2. losethisurl On October 18, 2010 at 11:47 am

Reality, it has failed you. 3. Cabin Campbell On October 18, 2010 at 11:48 am

This article seems to be poorly researched. Starting with the title “Comedy Central host’s attempt at political irony failing to draw much interest beyond the real of mild amusement.”-what does this even mean?Did you mean to type the word “realm” but couldn’t be bothered to proofread? “Glenn Beck’s Washington D.C. rally drew hundreds of thousands”-independent observations indicate an attendance of 87,000. You indicate that only people in their teens and twenties are interested in this rally, but even a cursory glance at the facebook page for this event would inform you the majority or attendees will be older. You would also see that as of today 208,815 people say they will be attending. Of course, that is only facebook-I am bringing in 8 people, over 45, that do not use facebook. Seems as though you could use better proofreading and research and your name is a trifle clumsy. Many years ago I coined the word “Cyberciety” which says the same thing, only clearer. Still, keep working at it; practice makes perfect. 4. d bricker On October 18, 2010 at 11:50 am

this blog aptly demonstrates why we are going to DC and by the way, I am in my 50’s. 5. Michele L On October 18, 2010 at 11:56 am

I will show you our momentum for this rally…. 208830 Attending Rally to Restore Sanity 88424 Attending Keep fear Alive March These are the numbers just from Facebook. Oh and Glen Beck\\\’s rally was only 87000 according to a counting firm. Not 100000s. http://www.rallymao.com/ This link is for the rallies that are happening all over America and other countries for the people that wanted to come to DC but could not make it. So do not tell me that this is not bringing out the masses. We will beat Glenn and we VOTE. 6. Cynthia416 On October 18, 2010 at 12:02 pm

Never heard of your site, til someone posted a link on the Facebook page for the rally. All I have to say is this is a very poorly researched, failed attempt by the right to poo-poo this event. This is for real! We are sane, all ages and we VOTE! Do your homework next time. 7. Youdont Needtoknow On October 18, 2010 at 1:39 pm

This is obviously written by someone who never watched Stewart and Colbert’s announcements about their rallies. It’s almost depressing how obvious it is that this was written by a “Beck fan” which, by itself wouldn’t be a bad thing, except for the fact that it’s giving out wrong numbers/data with blatant ignorance of the subject it’s written about. 8.

Ridicule is all this article deserves. 9. Becky On October 19, 2010 at 1:11 am

So let me get this straight, thousands of people are going to go to Washington DC, not for anything real, but just for satire’s sake? Wow that is sad. They won’t go and stand for any real cause, just to be a part of a joke? Like a Fraternity party? What is the “purpose” beyond thumbing their nose at Beck and making a joke out of Washington, which is doing great all by itself? Where are the Doctor Kings today? Men and women of integrity that stand for something and inspire others not to merely make irreverent and snarky comments, but actually DO SOMETHING. To make a difference everyday in the actions they take and how they live their lives. 10. Jess On October 22, 2010 at 6:01 pm

Sigh, we do stand for something, it is for truth in the media. By attending the rally we are doing something, bringing attention to this very important matter because as we all know being on tv is the only way to be noticed by a large portion of the population. Also, do some research about satire. Satire is used in an amusing way when one wishes to bring about change to an issue that one finds important. This isn’t left or right, that’s the point, this is for everyone else who just want some “truthiness” in the media about the people and policies that control this country. Post Comment
