This past weekend, the One Nation rally took place in Washington, D.C., bringing together a far more diverse cross-section of this country than you’d see at any Glen Beck/Teabagger farce.

Here’s Your Enthusiasm Gap: One Nation Rally Draws More Attendees Than Beck’s “Whitestock”

Enthusiasm gap, schmenthusiasm gap. Without the benefit of months and months of advertising and promotion on Fox News Channel (in fact, I’m only aware of Ed Schultz on MSNBC doing any kind of TV promotion), the One Nation Working Together rally in Washington DC has gathered more supporters than Glenn Beck’s much ballyhooed rally, which I will lovingly refer to as “Whitestock”.

Preliminary satellite estimates put the crowd size at 175,000 to 200,000 at about noon EST. By the calculations of Bachman/Beck, et al., that would mean at least 1,000,000, non?

The question is whether the corporate media will keep pimping the “importance” and influence of the tea baggers and ignore the bigger numbers on the Democratic side of the aisle. Of the cable outlets, only C-Span is airing the event, so clearly this doesn’t fit the narrative that MSNBC/CNN/Fox want to push.

Good Morning.
