Rush Limbaugh vs. Stephen Colbert and the Nature of Reality Itself
CBS head Les Moonves made the mistake of responding to Rush Limbaugh’s strange whining about Stephen Colbert taking over from David Letterman, and now Limbaugh thinks he has CBS on the run. Today he uncorked a bizarre rant about the nature of reality that makes me wonder if he’s back on the oxycodone.
“So now CBS has hired a guy that the question is, ‘Who is he?’ It still doesn’t matter ‘cause Les got his bragging rights,” he said. “Because we’re straying further and further from reality, and we’re being consumed by what isn’t real. We’re being consumed by what we’re told is important, what we’re told is real and substance. Reality is falling by the wayside each and every day.”
The conservative pundit then suggests that media in the U.S. is controlled by the government.
“Be it news media, be it entertainment media, be it pop culture media, it isn’t what you think,” he said. “In fact, it’s not even close anymore. And more and more of media is becoming state-controlled. Or at least more and more media is aligning itself with the state, with the government.”
