"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."

"One of the fictions that has" construction. If a student handed me that
My view of the semantic sense calls for "have."
