@rosborne979,
The comedy central link JPB gave above has a note on it now saying "come back soon for clips from the rally".

@Cycloptichorn,
C-SPAN reported the police couldn't allow any more people in the Mall because it was jammed full. They also said people were showing the rally in several states.

John Stewart's closing speech was outstanding.

I watched on Comedy Central. From last FB post by Fart, I doubt he made it for more than the last 20 minutes.

Thought at times it was a bit slow, but Jons speech at the end was great!

I'll look forward to it. There seems to be no news coverage going on right now. I thought I might find a few reviews of the day's activity, but I can't find any.

@Butrflynet,
Here's one crowd pic from Yahoo. Looks like quite the gathering.

Also, AP is now running a storyline that is being picked up by the news services.
