The official word:
C-SPAN Networks will provide LIVE coverage of the entire Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, produced by Comedy Central and featuring Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. C-SPAN’s live coverage of the Saturday, Oct. 30, 2010, event from the National Mall in Washington, DC, begins at noon ET.
C-SPAN’s live coverage will be available on TV on C-SPAN and on C-SPAN Radio (90.1 FM in Washington, DC, XM Satellite Radio channel 132, and the C-SPAN Radio App for the iPhone and iPod touch).
There will be local folks attending the event. Some congregants from Unity Chapel of Light in Tallmadge, for instance, have chartered a bus to attend this rally. There has been a lot of discussion about the rally's place in politics and how journalists can/can't participate, including in this funny piece., So it's interesting how the Unity Chapel group has explained its involvement:
This is a CULTURAL, rather than political event. All Americans have a stake in the future of our country. The rally is about making reason and informed discussion--rather than over-heated rhetoric and partisan politics—the modus operandi in our decisions; decisions that impact our own lives and the future of our nation.
