Tens of thousands reportedly gathered in Washington D.C.'s National Mall on Saturday as political satirists Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert made fun of the partisan bickering that takes place on cable news.
During their "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear," the comedic heavyweights goofed on TV talkers and politicians they deemed alarmists or doomsday prophets, the Associated Press says.
"We live now in hard times, not end times," a serious Stewart said.
"Your reasonableness is poisoning my fear," cracked Colbert, who pretends to be an ultra-conservative news pundit on his show, "The Colbert Report."
Music stars including Sheryl Crow, Kid Rock, Ozzy Osbourne and Wilco's Jeff Tweedy also took the stage to perform at the rally.
