So, because you find that a synopsis of his book by Sean McCorkle (written during his, "The Hater" period) initially seems plausible, it's evidence that he's a douche?
I'm not trying to change anyone's mind about Hughes. He seems like a cocky douche plenty of the time. But this is like someone using a story from The Onion as evidence.
Biases though distorted, are usually based on some truth. Regardless of what was actually said in the book, Matt rubs me the wrong way, so my opinion of him is my own form of bias
BTW the Onion bit made me lol IRL.
