Publisher Comments:

Recently, the media watch organization FAIR had a novel idea for a stinging response to Rush Limbaugh’s reign of error: the truth. The Way Things Aren’t documents and corrects over 100 whoppers told by The Lyin’ King, pitting Limbaugh versus Reality in areas ranging from American history to the environment, health care to rock and roll. It also has features such as “Limbaugh versus Limbaugh” with examples of Limbaugh contradicting himself, cartoons by Garry Trudeau and Tom Tomorrow, seven things you can do about Rush Limbaugh, a postcard to mail to the talk show host about his Limbecile statements, and a foreword to Limbaughland by Molly Ivins that is as scary as it is funny.

If you know a dittohead who needs deprogramming or if you want to see for yourself how far out on a Limbaugh Rush really is, pick up a copy of The Way Things Aren’t—it’s cheaper than The Way Things Ought to Be, and it’s been fact checked.

About the Author

Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) is a national media watch group that has been offering well-documented criticism of media bias and censorship since 1986. FAIR works to invigorate the First Amendment by advocating for greater diversity in the press and by scrutinizing media practices that marginalize public interest, minority and dissenting viewpoints. As an anti-censorship organization, FAIR exposes neglected news stories and defends working journalists when they are muzzled. As a progressive group, FAIR believes that structural reform is ultimately needed to break up the dominant media conglomerates, establish independent public broadcasting and promote strong non-profit sources of information. In The Way Things Aren’t (The New Press) FAIR documents and corrects over 100 whoppers told by Rush Limbaugh, pitting The Lyin’ King versus Reality in areas ranging from American history to the environment, health care to rock and roll.
