- title: Rush Limbaugh Freaks Out About Stephen Colbert Getting 'Late Show'
- summary: According to Rush Limbaugh, "Colbert's new job is nothing less than a grave political, constitutional, and moral crisis in American television."
"CBS has just declared war on the heartland of America," Limbaugh fumed. "No longer is comedy going to be a covert assault on traditional American values, conservatism. Now it's just wide out in the open. What this hire means is a redefinition of what is funny, and a redefinition of what is comedy. They're blowing up the 11:30 format... they hired a partisan, so-called comedian, to run a comedy show."
