Here's 15 things everyone would know if there really were a "liberal media"

8. Gerrymandering.

When was the last time you saw a front page headline about gerrymandering?

Before the 2010 election, conservatives launched a plan to win control of state legislatures before the census. The idea was to be in power when national congressional districts were redrawn in order to fix them so Republicans would win a majority of districts.

The Redistricting Majority Project was hugely successful. In 2012, Barack Obama was elected President by nearly 3.5 million votes. In Congressional races, Democrats drew nearly 1.4 million more votes than Republicans yet Republicans won control of the House 234 seats to 201 seats.

How is this possible?

1. Its a myth right now. Maybe many moons ago, yes, and thats when the media was

pretty much fair in their assessment of what was going on in the USA and the world. Back then, we had real Journalist. Now, its a joke that the news people who claim they are journalist.

Propaganda has completely taken over the media, its like living in a bubble of total one sided bullshit.

2. We are still working against Gerrymandering in Ohio. If only the

establishment democrats would help, we could rid our state of this by 2018 or sooner. Right now if you are an Ohio MoveOn member, you can help by taking MoveOn's survey and writing in redistricting US House districts as our most important issue here in Ohio. The link is http://act.moveon.org/survey/help-us-launch-progressive-state-project?t=1&referring_akid=161331.7989207.G7Uadg Thank you. We can do this.
