CNN Smears Electoral College, Lies About the Founders

Many on the left are calling for the nation to get rid of the Electoral College.
And it appears that many in the media support this notion
Unfortunately, progressives and their media allies at CNN and elsewhere have waged a disinformation campaign to bury the intentions of the Founders, or distort the Founders’ views on an institution vital to the republic.
Detractors have absurdly connected the Electoral College to racism and slavery.
The creation of the Electoral College had nothing to do with slavery; it was never even mentioned as part of the slavery debate at the Constitutional Convention. There were many slave states with large populations and free states with small populations.
And it was the Electoral College that allowed Abraham Lincoln, the Great Emancipator, to become president with 39 percent of the national popular vote, a mere plurality.
Linking the Electoral College with slavery is a smear, pure and simple.
Of course, in attacking the Electoral College, CNN chose the path of sheer dishonesty by insinuating that James Madison, a man often referred to as the “Father of the Constitution,” called the institution “evil.”
The Electoral College has been debated since the days of James Madison, who called it "evil." 
So could it actually be abolished? @JohnAvlon explores that in today’s #RealityCheck.
