UPDATE FROM BRAD: From all reports I'm getting, the turnout is absolutely huge! Wall-to-wall people! Nonetheless, the cable channels are ignoring, and C-SPAN was covering the speeches at the elipse, while hundreds of thousands were actually marching on the White House! C-SPAN helped make it look like there were only a couple of hundred there! I'm told cameras are everywhere, but nobody is carrying it live! TruthOut, however, is blogging, apparently via Blackberry, from within the "absolutely massive" march...All of the latest updates on hundreds of thousands gathered in D.C. (which you will not get on any of the cable channels, including C-SPAN) is here...

FURTHER UPDATE: Photos of crowds now here...
