From Johnny Carson to Stephen Colbert

The reason he didn’t let on where he stood politically is that he believed that he had a much greater responsibility — to offer Americans of all political persuasions an island of good-natured fun, a place where everyone could laugh together, every night.
This Reagan sketch is in a class far above what TV comics today are capable of.

Dennis Prager  "Whatever the Left dominates, it ruins. 
"In a monologue considered witty by teenagers, by teenagers in adult bodies, and by those who hate President Trump, CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert said about the president: 
“The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c***holster.”
"And: “You’re turning into a real pr**-tator.” 
Witty? Not to many of us. 
"And not just not witty, obscene — which is particularly disturbing because it was broadcast on network, not cable, television.
"But more than anything, it exemplified a trend in American life that one could identify without any exaggeration as the unraveling of civil society. To anyone, liberal or conservative, who grew up watching Johnny Carson on late night TV, the descent from Carson to Colbert is as breathtaking as it is heartbreaking.
. . .
"The universities, the news media, the entertainment media, the fine arts, the courts, the high schools and elementary schools (and, coming soon, the preschools, as soon as they’re government-funded and universal) — all ruined wherever leftism has achieved dominance."
