Media Wants Electoral College Dead

Anything they want killed that badly must be pretty good

The lamestream media told you:

Dec. 25, 2016 -- Christmas Day -- Hartford, Conn. Susan Haigh, AP https://www.pressreader.com/usa/the-arizona-republic/20161225/281715499275454

"The Electoral College is a relic of a bygone era, and we need to change this system," said Connecticut state Sen. Mae Flexer, who filed a bill with several fellow Democrats requiring Connecticut to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact..."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

In a 36-column-inch story on Christmas Day, the AP could not find one thing worthy about the Electoral College or why it even exists, in reporting on the effort to remove it from the greatest governmental system ever devised by man on Earth, the one that allows them to print their (place adjective here). More than 1,000 "news" outlets reprint AP pronouncements verbatim.

Expert after expert, democrats and republicans alike, are quoted, cited and described, but every word supports the idea that the Electoral College is antiquated, outdated, in need of a "work around," "a relic of a bygone era," and "we need to change the system." This is called "reporting." People taught to think call it "propaganda with an agenda."

Some critics do question however... whether they can get it done quickly, and there is even a republican mentioned who claims, without support of any kind, that it won't benefit either party. But it is a scheme being promoted virtually entirely by democrats only, for reasons that were unclear at press time. Because 33 state legislatures are controlled by republicans, the report recognizes there is "uncertainty."

Thanks to the Electoral College system, the unindicted corrupt syndicate that sought to incrementally eliminate the right to keep and bear arms, confiscate existing guns, promote the marxist progressive agenda, and unravel The American Way, was soundly defeated. http://www.gunlaws.com/TheAmericanWay.htm

Why anyone in their right minds would even think of supporting the Founding Fathers tried-and-true system of ensconced wisdom in the Electoral College instead of a mass popular vote for president isn't even hinted at. And yes, I ended with a preposition.
