This is fantastic news for those of you who aren’t able to make it to DC on October 30th. Here’s the scoop, according to the C-SPAN Twitter feed!

  1. OMG!!! YAAAAAAAAY!!!!!! C-SPAN FTW!!!!!!!!

    *so excited* omg, October is going to be an awesome month!!
    does this mean I shouldn’t go to my local Rally?
    oh no!


    I will definitely be watching (and I don’t care if it will be about 5am over here – this is what alarm clocks were invented for)!

      Awesome!!! C-SPAN rocks.

      I would totally get up in the middle of the night for this, but this time I don’t have to :)

      Can’t wait!

  3. Yay! I’m going to be there, but this means I”ll get to relive it over and over once a torrent of it gets out! :D Maybe if I manage to talk to one of the reporters covering it, a clip of it might be aired. And I’ll get to watch the clips in case I miss something Stephen or Jon says. I can only imagine how loud the crowd will be. Omg, this’ll be so awesome!!

    This is crazy…I would absolutely be able to watch this and at least experience the rally second-hand, but I have a History workshop that weekend! Curses! Well…Stephen’s testimony in Congress was available after it live-streamed, right? Maybe that’ll be the case with this as well. *crosses fingers*

  5. This is exciting even though I am going! I am short so I doubt I will see much–even at the inauguration and concert I had to have friends take pictures of the screens for me!!! Now I can record it and see what I heard but didnt’ see!! I’m just excited to go!

  6. omg omg omg omg I HOPE ITS CSPAN 1!!! :D

  7. Oh, sweet. I’ll definitely be sure to watch this, no question.

    YES! I never thought I’d say this but…C-SPAN, you are my hero. I can’t wait to sit in front of my television for three straight hours and watch the sanity/non-sanity unfold! :D

  9. OMG thank you C-SPAN!

    I can’t afford to go all the way to Washington, so I’m hoping to get to a satellite rally in Chicago. They need lots of money to pull it off, so if they don’t make it the 3rd best option will be watching on C-Span. If you’d like to help the Chicago rally, find their Facebook page and make a donation. Every little bit helps.

  11. Lo and behold, it looks like I can actually watch it down here as I just wandered over to C-Span to check it out -I just presumed I couldn’t view anything due to the usual restrictions, but looks like I can :happy dance: I am *so* watching the rally -and keeping my eyes peeled for the Zoners!

  12. Yes! I was really worried that I’d be stuck reading recaps and seeing none of it at all… this is excellent news!

  13. Hi all,
    I just had a look at the c-span website, no mention of any broadcast :( Anyone know where I could watch the rally? I live in europe.
