Dear Donor, A serious breach of conduct, ethics and values has been committed by NPR, its C.E.O. and its board members.

“Shattered Lives”: A story of suicide caused by the media (NPR) / by Damon Blalack

Your “gifts and donations” have been used to destroy innocent lives, creating havoc and ruin. In January 2017, a journalist was hired, and was allowed to violate NPR’s ‘Code of Ethics’ in every possible manner. Because of this a “defamation lawsuit” was filed by husband and wife, William and Anais Yeager, 2 artists and humanitarians whose lives were destroyed overnight by NPR.

William Yeager’s reputation and life were destroyed so badly (in print and on the radio, by reaching to millions of people across the world) that William Yeager suffered extreme mental anguish and has endured two successive suicide attempts.

NPR’s behavior was beyond despicable and appalling: More concerned about their money than correcting the wrongful act they had committed against the Yeagers, NPR refused to remove the article or repair the damages that were done. Instead they used YOUR money to purchase 3 Super Attorneys to defend their unethical position against William and his wife. What NPR is asking for in its motion, is not about freedom of the press, but the right to destroy lives.

Most recently there has been sexual misconduct and sexual harassment in the work place at National Public Radio, where top managing editors have been fired; a 2 year cover-up of these serious sexual harassment allegations; only when they were discovered by the Washington Post, only then did C.E.O. Jarl Mohn admit the wrong, and then took an immediate and mysterious sudden leave from his position of overseeing his duties at NPR.
Right NOW, NPR is trying to conceal public information about a serious defamation lawsuit that involves not only their own journalists, but NPR’s General Counsel.
line
This breach of ethical standards is so serious to NPR, that even their own Ombudsman has not responded.
line
Just recently another lawsuit for 57 million was filed for defamation. NPR’s ombudsman gave their comments regarding this lawsuit, yet is purposely avoiding mentioning anything about the William Yeager v. NPR lawsuit (you can read about the lawsuit on this site), because it is not simply a matter of defamation, it is a matter that NPR has shattered and destroyed the lives of two very special people: a husband and wife, artists, musicians, and humanitarians, whose mission, dream and future were destroyed.

The Yeagers’ careers were permanently damaged and their benefit concerts to provide wheel chairs to underground landmine victims were permanently terminated (Mindy’s Wish).
line
NPR’s supervisors and everyone involved in the case, including the General Counsel Ashley Messenger, were well aware of these damages and that due to NPR’s wrongful act, William Yeager had suffered personal humiliation, public contempt, ridicule, severe depression and was in a suicidal state.
line
William and his wife Anais provided an immense amount of evidence, even letters and phone calls from pastors; again and again the Yeagers asked that the defamatory article be removed to which NPR refused, although they admitted they were wrong when they stated “we misunderstood you”.
line
Knowing the fact that the Yeagers were little unknowns without power, clout, money (as NPR admitted in their story), NPR knew the Yeagers could not afford to hire an attorney to defend themselves, so they inflicted more extreme mental anguish on them corresponding for days and weeks and in the end, tried to trick Yeager into a flimsy agreement. During this time William Yeager attempted 2 suicides.

A feature film that was produced in 2015 about Billy and Anais, called The Film That Changed the World, which tells the story about 2 people who are on a mission and want to use their talents and find a way to change the world.

For over one year, neither the C.E.O. nor the board of directors were willing to do anything to help the Yeagers although they were all aware of this injustice.
line
The Yeagers’ loses were severe and their lives were falling apart due to NPR, and Jarl Mohn expressed no concern.
line
Billy Yeager had his reputation shattered in his own small town where he resides in Kansas, population 900. On the radio program “All Things Considered,” which is broadcasted worldwide, Billy Yeager was accused of being a charlatan”, one who sells merchandise, deceptively bilking people out of money”; not one piece of evidence was provided to prove their serious accusations in their malicious, extremely – biased defamatory story. Billy was never contacted and invited to the program, which is once again a violation of the ethics that NPR proclaims in their 124,000 worded “code of ethics.”
line

The Yeagers had no money to afford a lawyer, and they had to take on their own case against NPR, who believed they couldn’t defend themselves.

line
In Billy Yeager’s “lawsuit complaint” he cites scripture from the bible, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”, and others, and defends his long time dedication to “change the world for the benefit of humanity.”
line
So appalling is NPR’s breach of contract agreement for respectable and ethical behavior to NPR’s donors, when publishing their Billy Yeager ‘story’, that besides breaking all their rules of NPR’s ‘Code of Ethics’, being extremely biased, never getting their facts right, lying, fabricating information, destroying good people and refusing to make good, their despicable behavior continued “in the NPR tradition” when the attorney they hired even mocked William Yeager again in their “Motion to Dismiss” poking fun at his humanitarian efforts, ridiculing him as “so called divine messenger.”
line
We plead with all Donors to spread this word, but also encourage you to read Damon Blalack’s STORY about the Yeagers, learn about their vision and mission to change the world, and learn about the truth regarding this appalling misrepresentation of NPR’s statement values, code of conduct, honesty and integrity. See this website for all information!
line
The National Council of Nonprofits states that America’s charitable nonprofits rely on the public trust and it is important that nonprofits continuously earn the public’s trust through their commitment to ethical principles, transparency, and accountability.
line
NPR’s promise to the public and donors, stating they will adhere to their standards and principles, “statement of values” and “code of conduct” has been broken.
line
NPR has failed, the breach of ethical standards are never more apparent and clear in the lawsuit William Yeager v. NPR.
line
Please refuse to support NPR any longer until they take responsibility for the wrongful act they have committed.

Donations can be made to help the Yeagers with their legal funds.
