    I've heard 10's of thousands(msnbc anchor), hundreds of thousands(cnn guest speaker), and even over 500,000(fox news guest speaker) .

    I'm watching and I can't guess how many are there myself but it looks like its over 100,000.

    Anyone have links to articles that have claims of attendance numbers?

    I guess it seems that it was around ~300,000 people at the rally?

    I wish beck wasn't so religious all the time, I really liked a lot of what he was saying but i'm just not religious and turning to religion doesn't work for me.

    Who cares how many people were there?

    You know why the parks department doesn't release estimates anymore, right?

    It was a shitload...

    Actual numbers doesn't really matter as both sides will spin it...

    All of the pictures show that it was a shitload of people...

    I started listening to Beck on the radio a few weeks ago and he's mental and has a God complex as big as Obama's to boot.

    He's also rooting for the end of the world because he imagines himself to be a Savior of sorts.

    I can't listen to Hannity either, his show is just a "3,567 Day until the 2012 election"

    Levin banned me so he can go fuck himself, when I listen at all its only to the first 10 minutes after that it's virtually all commercials

    Rush and John Bachelor are the only ones I can listen to for any length of time

    Because the organizers of the Million Man March called them racists when they told the truth.
