Rush Limbaugh says he's not intimidated by Glenn Beck or any of the other conservative media figures who have risen to prominence of late. In fact, he takes credit for paving the way--and he rather likes what conservative media has become following his success.

As he puts it: "Look what I have spawned."

NBC's Today show aired more of correspondent Jamie Gangel's interview with Limbaugh this morning, during which she asks the talk radio king what he thinks of the newly popular Beck.

Gangel: "Glenn Beck. Do you worry about the new guy on the block?"

Limbaugh: "No. In 1988, I'm the only national conservative voice. Now look at conservative media. Look what I have spawned. Glenn Beck, to me, is right on, daddy-o. Glenn Beck is a result of my success."
