Fanatical Science Fiction

Here's a media bias diatribe by the TOR-published from North Carolina, Orson Scott Card. It's horribly cliched flawed reasoning that's only evidence of his hard-right redneck bias.

You can't toss out accusations like that and not get specific. How is it cliched? How is it flawed? The essay made a lot of sense to me.

Sure I can. He cites the same "I can see it" pretzel logic all media bias proponents use. The pattern example he uses aren't solid evidence, only feelings based on skewed impressions and innuendo on what Card wants to see. It only looks biased because he is so radically biased rightward. It's a prism problem.
