As people flocked to the National Mall for the Daily Show's rally, many people complained there weren't nearly enough audio speakers for such a large event.
Comedy Central told the Park Service they were expecting 60,000 people. But just five blocks from the stage, thousands of people were frustrated they couldn't hear anything, which solicited chants of "Louder, louder, louder" from the crowd.
Hundreds of those people left early after spending hours fighting for space in the crowd. Jerry Ferguson came out from Fairfax County, Virginia.
"I guess they were concerned about anticipating too big a crowd and not getting that big crowd, so they didn't put up enough speakers," Ferguson said.
The Park Service doesn't provide crowd estimates, but the co-hosts provided their own: Jon Stewart guessed ten million people and Stephen Colbert put it in the ballpark of six billion people.
