Yet another case of the so-called liberal media bending over backward to pretend that conservatives have a valid argument:

[O]rganizers are working to get individual states to join a compact changing the way they select their own electoral votes — an idea that was first floated several years ago based on the conviction that the Constitution gives states the right to determine how their own electors are chosen. [emphasis added]
Reporter Stephanie Ebbert is unwilling to make note of the plain language of the Constitution (Art. II, section 1):
Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress.
The unwillingness to state simple, incontrovertible facts if conservatives dislike those facts is a maddening feature of our senescent big media and an existential threat to our nation.

I'm really going to throw you for a loop on this one:

Is this closer to democracy?


Is this part of a liberal conspiracy?


Is this a bad thing?


Is this all perfectly legal and constitutional?


Which side am I on?

Not sure you understood my point. Because of decades of false claims by conservatives that the media is biased, journalists refuse to state the bald truth that NPV is clearly Constitutional.

The word conspiracy implies illegality. Nope, none of that here.

If NPV is a bad thing, make your case. But when all you can say is you don't like it, well, at best we're voting, not persuading.

Hint, saying you think it's a bad thing makes it pretty clear you're against it.

I guess I did miss your point.
