Mr. Limbaugh didn't "expose" anything.  Independent fact-checkers have 
shown he is frequently guilty of distortion.  But that is how he makes 
his living-- he is a political talk show host, and a provocateur.  He 
berates those who disagree with him, and he gets good ratings for doing 
so.  The ability to berate others does not make you correct on the facts 
-- it just makes you exciting to your base of listeners.  What I always 
liked about David Brudnoy, who was also a conservative, is he never 
berated anyone and he never distorted the facts in service of ratings-- 
he was fair to his guests and loved a good debate.  Mr. Limbaugh does 
not want an exchange of ideas, nor is he being paid to provide one.
