The joy of seeing the smuggest know-it-all in America exposed in this book is fleeting when you consider that Rush Limbaugh’s 20 million listeners will probably never read it. Still, The Way Things Aren’t: Rush Limbaugh’s Reign of Error, compiled by media watchdog Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting, is a masterpiece of corrective journalism. It documents Limbaugh’s self-contradictions, botched statistics, slippery grasp of history, and ethnic slurs. The man who denies being a racist once told a black caller to ”take that bone out of your nose” and recommended sending unskilled jobs to ”stupid and unskilled Mexicans.” Limbaugh’s observation that ”feminism was established so that unattractive women could have easier access to the mainstream of society” may explain his dearth of female fans. Further, claim the authors Steven Rendall, Jim Naureckas, and Jeff Cohen, Limbaugh — the champion of patriotism, family values, and religion — didn’t register to vote until he was 35, recently entered his third marriage, and doesn’t attend church. A must-read for anyone doing battle in the culture wars. A
