Orson Scott Card is an author of a number of science fiction novels, writes an opinion column for The Ornery American, is a devout Mormon, and is a classical liberal – in short, he has nothing nice to say about the Leftists who have usurped the title “liberal” and debased it.
Well, he lays some smack-down on on the Leftist media in his latest column:
When Fox News Channel was founded by Rupert Murdoch, the consensus was that no startup all-news cable channel could possibly compete with CNN.
And if any startup had a chance, it was MSNBC, which had the combined clout of NBC’s esteemed news division and Microsoft, which in those days was believed to own the future.
Now, about a decade later, Fox News Channel has left both CNN and MSNBC in the dust.
There’s no guarantee that this is permanent, of course.
But it certainly has the Left in a panic. They hated it that American conservatism had any voice at all, back when it was confined to a few radio talk shows — remember how everybody wanted to blame Rush Limbaugh and other conservative talk-radio hosts for the Oklahoma City bombing?
I certainly do.
Read the whole piece – It beats the bloody equine corpse of media bias, but is still well worth your time.
