THE UNITED STATES CITIZENS V. THE CORPORATION OF PUBLIC BROADCASTING & NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO
“The organization has a Policy and Representation department that has been advocating on behalf of NPR for decades, according to Dana Rehm, an NPR spokeswoman”. The lobbying group is making sure the funds they’ve been able to secure from the old democrat majorities in Congress, aren’t lost.”
“NPR is just one of the many ways in which the left uses taxpayer dollars to advance its partisan and ideological agenda. It should be cut off without a cent. ”
“NPR is a Leftist propaganda organ. If the Federal Government wants to fund it, we should play with the same rules across the political spectrum. The Feds should also fund Rush, Beck, and Levin (at least they might make a return on their investment).”
“So my tax dollars go to NPR to pay for a lobbyist to get more of my tax dollars and liberals see nothing wrong with that?”
“It’s time to stop the funding on this liberal propaganda machine.. I object to my taxpayer money funding something so…”
“This is a prime example of corporate welfare. NPR should NOT be receiving ANY tax dollars.”
“Those dirty SOB’s in DC better cut off the funding for NPR. Why in the world does my tax money have to pay for….”
“Every 501(c3) you see on TV puking on liberals, is stealing your tax money by evading taxes. ”
It’s about control. Gain control over an organization and you control their funding.
Of Course public money is being used to hire a lobbyist, Money is fungible, if any money is spent on lobbyists, and you get some $$ from Government then some money is going for Lobbyists.”
The underlying matter is a class action lawsuit filed by William Yeager (Class Representative) on behalf of a putative class consisting of all United States Citizens who, between January 1, 1967 and January 1, 2019, paid Government Taxes.
Why is there a notice?
The breadth of this class action lawsuit is enormous.
“We The People” have authorized this notice because your “rights” as a Citizen have been violated, the U.S. Government has been deceptively manipulated into providing 13 Billion dollars of the American Citizens Tax dollars, and is being used to support a political party and political agenda that you did not willing participate in. This notice explains the ways you may participate in the Settlement, and explains the nature of the litigation, and explains how the settlement proceeds.
Who are the Defendants in the lawsuit?
The Corporation of Public Broadcasting and National Public Radio
What is this litigation about?
Background of the Action
One of the most serious arguments for de-funding is that extreme liberal biased journalism exists at NPR and even PBS, and a government that is $20 trillion in debt should not fund a service where taxes are coerced from the American peoples tax dollars to support this liberal bias.
It is well known that NPR is extremely biased and promotes its one party “Democrats” and its liberal agendas by dozens of well respected and qualified research watchdog groups that have gathered 100’s of statistics regarding these facts. All of these statistics gathered from over 30 years of research verify that NPR is extremely biased to the left and liberal. NPR in fact itself even admits this. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting is an American privately owned non-profit corporation created in 1967 by an act of the United States Congress and funded by the federal government to promote and help support public broadcasting.
CPB provides funding to National Public Radio. Since 1967 over 13 Billion Dollars have been taken from every single American citizen (tax dollars) and have been used to promote a biased liberal agenda (NPR) these tax dollars have been used illegally to hire lobbyist in Washington to continue to receive over 450,000,000.00 this last year. Every year, your Government has been working diligently to defund CPB, because it is in fact “unconstitutional,” however, because of PR Firms, lobbying, and many other deceptive tactics, as a U.S. Citizen your tax dollars have been taken by the government regardless of what party you support and used to support one of the leading # 1 Liberal Left media outlets in the world.
There are Objectivity and balance requirements for CPB and NPR
The Public Broadcasting Act of 1967 requires the CPB to operate with a “strict adherence to objectivity and balance in all programs or series of programs of a controversial nature”. It also requires it to regularly review national programming for objectivity and balance, and to report on “its efforts to address concerns about objectivity and balance”. It also restricts its use of lobbying.
Serious concern is that, CPB and NPR takes these American citizens tax dollars, which are distributed to CPB and NPR, and funnels these funds illegally through the revolving doors of Washington hiring lobbyist. NPR’s last 3 quarters from 2018 in fact funded lobbyists over 501, 750.00 ( 167, 250.00 x 3) to influence Washington’s decision regarding Public Funding.
Whether or not American Citizens Paying tax dollars or Public Funding was used, there is unlawful activity regarding these matters of concern. 31 U.S.C. Section 1352 prohibits the use of federal funds to engage in lobbying activities. The law is clear and states that you may not use federal funds to influence or attempt to influence any member of the Executive or Legislative branches of government for the purpose of securing a grant or contract.
Why is this a class action?
In a class action, one or more people file a lawsuit to assert legal claims on be half of themselves and other persons who have experienced the same circumstances . Here, the United States Citizens ( 350 million) have named themselves as Plaintiffs in the consolidated class action complaint against Defendants and William Yeager will serve as “Settlement Class Representative” to represent not only their personal interests, but the interests of all the Settlement ClassMembers.
