Saudi Police Open Fire at Rally

A witness in the eastern city of Qatif says gunfire and stun grenades were fired at several hundred protesters marching in the city streets Thursday. The witness, speaking on condition of anonymity because he feared government reprisal, said police in the area opene...

Saturday is Rally Day for Comedians Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert

WASHINGTON – Rob Silverstein, a freshman at Georgetown University, believes Saturday's "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" on the National Mall will be a "Woodstock-like event for a lot of people." "This is an event that I'm going to remember for the rest of my life," he predicts. Perhaps the sponsors are thinking the same thing. A rally in front of the U.S. Capitol, with national visibility, is new territory for Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, the popular TV comedians who concocted the event. According to the Facebook page for the rally, more than 200,000 people have signed up to attend....

(Oct. 25) -- Should "fake news" know its place? Days before Comedy Central's Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will host dueling rallies on the Washington Mall on Oct. 30, a handful of commentators is questioning whether the comedic duo have gone too far by merging their small-screen antics into bona fide political activism. With over 200,000 people saying they plan to attend Stewart's "Rally to Restore Sanity," another 16,000 opting to attend Colbert's "March to Keep Fear Alive" and thousands more to signal their approval at satellite gatherings around the country, the spectacle of an event ...

Obama Speaks at First Presidential Rally of 2010 Midterms [LIVE]

Jon Stewart Goes on 'Oprah' as Rally Picks Up Steam

(Sept. 21) -- A little more than a month before his "Rally to Restore Sanity" will be held in Washington, D.C., Jon Stewart appeared on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to promote a new book and poke more fun at Glenn Beck. Stewart's latest interview with Winfrey was officially set up to hawk copies of "Earth: A Visitor's Guide to the Human Race," the comedian's new book, but when Oprah flashed a picture of Beck and asked for Stewart's instant reaction, "The Daily Show" host couldn't help but chide the man whose "Restoring Honor" march provided much of the inspiration for his own upcoming rally.

Here's how Stewart describes what kind of people he hopes will attend his march on Oct. 30. We're looking for ...
