Best selling author Orson Scott Card made news today by writing an excellent article calling out the democrats and the main stream media for bias. Read about it below along with his biography. Also, see photos and a video.
Orson Scott Card is not unaccustomed to voicing his opinion. He maintains The Ornery American website that is filled with articles he has written on conservative values. He is a Democrat, a conservative and a best selling author. His conservative views alone make him unique in the world of best selling authors and democrats. His 1985 science fiction book, Ender’s Game, is one of the best books I have ever read.
Today, Card was both applauded by conservatives and dismissed as insane by liberals. It all started with an open letter he wrote for the Rhinoceros Times, in which he asked Would the Last Honest Reporter Please Turn On the Lights? It is a ‘must read’ for anyone interested in the political climate that we, as Americans, are currently treadin our way through.
His article is a blistering indictment of the main stream media and its deliberate efforts to minimize negative information about Presidential Candidate Barack Obama and to exaggerate, or out and out invent, negative stories about Presidential Candidate John McCain and Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin. He also lays out a concise and convincing argument that explains how the current economic woes of the United States, and the world, is directly the result of the liberal democrats in Congress.
Make sure you read his article.
While you are reading that article, you might be interested in the opening line of his best selling science fiction novel, Ender’s Game. Its one of the best out there and seems eerily poignant when read through the eyes of someone watching politics today.
‘I’ve watched through his eyes, I’ve listened through his ears, and I tell you he’s the one.’
