Orson Scott Card is a science fiction writer, critic, columnist, memebr of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and a confessed Democrat.
My scant research on the man revealed to me that along with his Democrat Party views, he holds many views of the conservative, Republican Party. He has been quoted as being a follower of Tony Blair and Daniel Patrick Moynihan. I suppose one could say Orson Card is a Liberal, but not too Liberal.
The reason I write all this is because of a recent article by Card criticizing the state of Journalism and its coverage of the Housing crisis and the upcoming Presidential Election.
“Would the Last Honest Reporter Please Turn On the Lights?” is an open letter to all of the nation’s local newspapers and in effect, the national media machine and its seemingly orchestrated agenda of electing Barack Obama as our next President of the United States.
Quoting bits and pieces of the article doesn’t do the author’s rant any justice. So, I’m asking my readers to read the article and come back here and give me your opinion. Agree? Disagree? Attack the writer?
“Getting Political” is a semi-regular feature of “On The Road With Dave”. While Dave is no political pundit by any stretch of the imagination; “Getting Political” allows him to stretch that imagination.
