The liberal media just can't stand all the attention Glenn Beck got for his "Restoring Honor" rally in Washington, D.C., last month.
On Thursday, left-leaning comedians Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert announced dueling marches on our nation's capital to take place three days before Election Day.
The "Daily Show" host was first to announce his event (videos follow with commentary):
|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c|
|Rally to Restore Sanity|
About a half an hour later, Colbert announced his own rally (relevant section at 2:30):
|The Colbert Report||Mon - Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c|
|March to Keep Fear Alive|
Are these just publicity stunts to mock Beck or the real deal?
Consider that this story has been a featured headline at Google News for well over an hour with over 300 outlets reporting it.
As such, it seems a metaphysical certitude these rallies will be covered with far more enthusiasm and excitement than the media showed for Beck's event.
The only question is how well attended they will be.
