Fake History: CNN uses blatant lie, rewrites history to help Democrats’ war against Electoral College

In an obvious effort to spread propaganda designed to help Democrats in their war against the Constitution and the Electoral College, CNN, the cable outlet dubbed the “least-trusted” name in network news, re-wrote history and told a blatant lie about the Electoral College.

According to Twitchy, CNN’s John Avlon distorted a quote to suggest James Madison — one of those responsible for the Electoral College — was really against the Electoral College.

There’s only one problem.

Twitter gave the fake news network a remedial lesson in history:

The Washington Free Beacon’s Alex Griswold posted the source:

As a final note, this isn’t the first time CNN has engaged in fake history, as we reported here.
