First one I found (there are many):

Rush was quoted as saying that Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor was a poor choice for, among other things, the fact that the Supremes overturned "80% of her decisions" which went in front of them. The number is actually about 60% on cases in which she authored the majority opinion, not 80%. While that 60% may still seem high, the Supremes historically overturn 68% of cases they see, so it's not that much.

That's just one example. I have access to google, so if you need more examples I'll be happy to provide them. :-)

As knappic pointed out there are many examples. This does not mean I believe everything the liberal fraction of the media puts out but I do believe Rush has a tendency to distort 'facts' more than most commentators - liberal or conservative.
If it's obvious it's probably true.

I wish though you would use the current Hebrew word - Oron - for the esteemed 7th planet in our solar system. It just sounds so classy.

I really don't feel like doing the research that you must have already done to come to this conclusion, please give me an example - in your own words. ;-)

or if you're incapable of such, please invite Knapp to chime in.
