Rallies for Political Compromise and "Sanity"

Colbert, Stewart Plan Dueling Marches
to Counter Glenn Beck

Let the march madness begin.
Comedy Central cohorts Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will rally their respective troops on Oct. 30 in a battle of the marches in Washington.
Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity (whose message is: Take it down a notch, America) will meet Colbert's March to Keep Fear Alive on the National Mall.

“It is happening, people,” Stewart said during his show Thursday. “A million moderate march where we take to the streets to send a message to our leaders and our national media that says, ‘We are here … we’re only here, though, until 6 because we have a sitter!’ ”

Spurred on by their Web fan base, Comedy Central personalities Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert say they are going to stage a “million moderate march” on the national mall in response to Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally.

Stewart is calling the event, scheduled for Oct. 30, a Saturday afternoon, the “Rally to Restore Sanity.” Colbert's mock-conservative character is calling his concurrent counter-march “March to Keep Fear Alive.”

The two events were triggered by fans who staged a Web write-in campaign. That zeal mushroomed shortly after Beck’s rally in late August, The Washington Post reported.

Side note: More American adults 18 to 30 get their primary "news" from Comedy Central and MTV than CNN or FoxNews. Nielson and Pew Trust both confirm this, further blurring the lines between fact and fiction, ratings and accuracy, entertainment and information.

Midterm Review Using the Blog

As we approach midterm, due to the size of the class sections, much of the review will be by your own studies based on the book, lecture and the notes I have posted or sent you by e-mail on Angel.

I will also start using the blog to post occasional reviews of key content.

As we get closer these blog reviews will be based on actual questions from the midterm. You may then post comments on the blog, as you have questions.

When you post your questions or comments on the blog, remember you can sign them or list them as anonymous (so you do not have to feel uncomfortable about asking a question).

I am trying this system because it allows me to deal with questions and answers from all of my sections, and at the same time increase the “Communication Studies” content of the blog for any outside users who happen to stumble upon it.
