WASHINGTON - Congress has announced its proposal for a new Constitutional Amendment that would grant the media a seat as the fourth branch of government with the power to appoint the Executive.

"The media has been integral to preserving our democratic process during the Trump administration," said Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, "From mocking the President on sketch comedy shows to mocking the President on late night news shows, to mocking the President on the evening news, without CNN and MSNBC, how would the American public know that orange man bad?"

The proposal indicates that media representatives would be independently elected by the Democratic Party in the House and Senate, regardless of which party holds the Congressional majority.

The Media would serve as a check against Republican elected officials, as well as Constitutional Originalists on the Supreme Court. The Media would be balanced by legislation demanding that the branch be controlled by its most junior and most Marxist members, like The New York Times' Nikole Hannah-Jones.
