"One of the fictions that have grown out of the constant interviewing

of Reed and other arbiters of right-wing political correctness is

that Amerians vote for a Presidential candidate mainly because of where

he stands on certain clearly defined isues."

It seems to me that the semantic sense of the sentence calls for a

"One of the fictions that has" construction. If a student handed me that

My view of the semantic sense calls for "have."
