Yeager’s $ 350 million-dollar defamation lawsuit against NPR 

lake 4
William and Anais Yeager

is unprecedented, and it will most likely go down in history as one of the most important court cases of our times for several different reasons. One of those reasons is that he is defending himself (pro se) against 3 Super attorneys hired by NPR.

Sworn statement (from the lawsuit):

I, Leah Friedman do solemnly swear that I never heard of or knew anything about Billy Yeager before the assignment to write about the Discogs discrepancy appeared on my desk in September 2017.

“The first thing to know is that I write many articles about many different topics. After doing this for awhile, the dots start to connect. That’s what happened when I came across this NPR article. I scrutinized the accusations knowing there was bias behind them and my research began. After reading about the Discogs case, I began researching my topic just as I do all the others. I checked facts in various locations, read reviews, viewed videos, and much more. This is my responsibility as a journalist to get ALL the facts before writing a story. When I began my research, I knew nothing about Mr. Yeager, Discogs or any of his history in music or with media. As a purely objective observer, much like a juror, I approached my research and simply gathered as many facts as possible. Nevertheless, it became clear that bias with media releases was slanted against the plaintiff, Mr. Yeager.

photoleahDefamation is more than an expression of opinion particularly in this case where continuous bombardment of slanderous content has been forthcoming from NPR,  additionally, there have been no positive assessments of any kind pertaining to the plaintiff, therefore, presenting a clear bias against him.” Leah Friedman

What happened?

npr_72615936_sq-db60427646437f507ab2807a5b8b8b7083119a9a-s200-c85On March 23, 2017 NPR published a defamatory article that caused a $ 350 million-dollar lawsuit. Disregarding all of NPR’s ‘Code of Ethics’, journalist Andrew Flanagan wrote an extremely biased and malicious story, destroying the lives of 2 people and their charity benefit concerts and humanitarian work. Flanagan recruited Audie Cornish and Jacob Ganz to continue mocking and defaming Yeager over the airwaves, calling him a “charlatan”, (one who deceives people and bilks people out of money,) on NPR’s “All Things Considered” radio show, which is broadcasted to over 19 million people across the world.

Despite the fact that the artist’s official website http://www.billyyeager.com stated that he was an award winning musician and filmmaker, a performance artist, an activist and a humanitarian; despite the fact that there is a documentary film that tells the story about Billy and Anais and their desire “to help those who can’t help themselves” that won Most Inspirational movie award in 2015 at the Red Dirt International Film festival, NPR’s journalist Andrew Flanagan made no mention of these facts, breaking every single rule of NPR’s ‘Code of Ethics’. Flanagan did not write one single positive comment about Billy and his wife Anais’ work and mission as spiritual and activist artists wanting to “change the world for the benefit of humanity”.

Even more serious is the Tortious Act committed by NPR’s own General Counsel Ashley Messenger who corresponded with the Yeagers for over 2 months, using deceptive tactics to “trick” them into a flimsy agreement, because everyone (including C.E.O. Jarl Mohn and Board members) was well aware of the truth. Ashley Messenger even admitted they (NPR) “misunderstood” and  that the Yeagers had a “mission to change the world”, but they didn’t offer a “retraction”, only a deceiving “trick”.

On September 6, 2017  another journalist, Leah Friedman from OMG News, read NPR’s defamatory Article and immediately detected bias. Leah Friedman clearly perceived it was written by a malicious journalist, one who unquestionably had a hidden agenda.

“ From what I understand about Billy Yeager’s goal and the controversy it provokes, it stands to reason that anyone he disagrees with will try to discredit his work, his opinions, talents, etc., especially if they know he is right. Any recognition on their part will mean they have to admit their wrongdoings and give credit where credit is due. The Yeagers are trying to make music from their souls. Additionally, they are trying to present through films and other outlets a truth they believe deeply. These truths are against the agenda of the powers that be. The Yeagers are an example of people pursuing their purpose.

– Leah Friedman

Greetings! My name is Dennis, I am a writer, not a professional, just a blogger with an interest in what William Yeager and his wife are trying to accomplish all by themselves, trying to change the world with their artistic creative talents, and confronting injustice; their mission statement I believe says it best.

The site http://www.npr2019.com was initiated by myself and some others in a way to keep people who are following the Yeagers’ unprecedented case against NPR informed.
line
William Yeager is defending himself (pro se) against 3 super attorneys (one very dirty). The case is pending, a motion to dismiss has been filed, but the David and Goliath situation is a countdown to the last amended complaint; we believe truth and justice will reign, and if not God help this place and thing we call humanity.

David and Goliath
line
The issue at hand is so pertinent that William Yeager is willing to proceed all the way to the Supreme Courts, wanting to not rewrite, but make provisions to the First Amendment that Yeager believes was originally conceived and written by our founding fathers not to destroy the United States Citizen, but was implemented to keep in-check and protect our freedoms from a corrupt government.
line
“I do not believe the first amendment and giving “rights” to freedom of the press, was written with the intention to protect those who hurt, destroy, humiliate, cause extreme duress and pain and suffering to the People of the United States,” says Yeager.
line
“The answer to the question regarding whether there be limitations on the press and media is to ask, ‘is this perhaps the time in our history and Nation, that new laws, rules and regulations be legislated and enforced upon the media and press regarding its “freedoms”? Is it lawful and right for our United States Courts and judicial system to protect its United States citizens from serious violations of the Constitution, which was written to secure the Blessings of Liberty, protecting its citizens from ridicule and scorn, is it right to allow the media to fabricate lies, violate every good virtue of human good, is it right for New York Times V. Sullivan to be able to stand forevermore, as a corroded decaying inhumane statute, to institute and enforce its omnipotent, extremely high burden of proof on the American citizen, so much so that one has no chance to defend his reputation in our courts, because of the laws of yesterday, sown by division, that deters and stifles our future of development, and growth and evolution of the human spirit; and, should a law that is flawed, by all American Standards, prevail and be condoned, when serious violations are inflicted upon the U.S. citizen, ones that cause serve depression, mental anguish, loss of income and suicide; should this be allowed, all in the name of the love of money?’” William Yeager

NPR is being sued by not just one, but two people, Ed Butowsky ( $57 million) and William Yeager ($350 million).
line
NPR addressed the Butowsky V. NPR lawsuit, saying that NPR “stands behind Folkenflik’s reporting. Millions of Americans trust NPR to provide accurate information about the world and their communities every day; we take this responsibility very seriously.” Added Folkenflik, “I’m proud of the journalism that we do at NPR and of my coverage, generally, and on this story. I stand by my reporting.”
line
Even though William Yeager filed his complaint months earlier than Butowsky, there is no mention or comment regarding the matter.

There are reasons why.
line
NPR is a public funded institution; people are asked to become donors and supporters; the public provides multi-millions of dollars to provide funds to keep NPR’s operations going, but what they don’t want the public to know is that NPR has violated serious contractual agreements to the public, NOT  adhering to their own rules of conduct, breaking all the rules of their code of ethics, and fabricating lies, defaming private people, and destroying the lives of the same people they ask money from.
line
We all know that celebrities and politicians are up for grabs and ridicule, but nobody expects the radio show “All Things Considered” to broadcast over the airwaves to 20 million people, that someone is a charlatan and huckster, which is a cheat, fraud and refers to someone who has done something wrong in regards to selling dishonestly, and cheating people out of money (no matter how you spin the word, we all know what it means) with no evidence. If NPR would have committed such an outrageous act in another country, surely all those summoned would be put in prison.
