Shawna Vercher, President of political action media network Democracy Legacy, appeared as a guest on the Bill Meyer Show to discuss the importance of Democracy Legacy in today’s media landscape.

“We founded Democracy Legacy as a response to what we seeing in so much of the media, where they were just having trouble adapting to this new era. And we’re seeing this on the national stage… they don’t know how to handle someone who is just outright lying… We founded a media network that was governed, not by corporations, but by political activists and donors. Our mission is not; ‘how many clicks can we trick you into reading this story’ but ‘what’s the meaning of the story and does it result in meaningful political action.’” Vercher said.
