Orson Scott Card calls out the mainstream media

Will the last honest reporter please turn on the lights? The editor's note reads: Orson Scott Card is a Democrat and a newspaper columnist, and in this opinion piece he takes on both while lamenting the current state of journalism.

In high school I fell in and out of love with Card's writing pretty quickly (which for me means a couple of months and as many of his books as the library had at the time). But I still respect him as an author, and now even more as someone willing to go against his party and most of his professional colleagues in the cause of truth. That takes guts.

Truth, truth, nobody's daughter. . . .
