Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Breitbart.com: “Association of Broadcasters Harasses Congress for JCPA Media Cartel Bill”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The potential inclusion of the controversial media bailout known as the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA) threatened to upend the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Powerful special interest groups, such as the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), lobbied for the JCPA’s inclusion in the bill despite the prospect of politicizing the funding authorization for the nation’s troops.

The NAB came out of the shadows and activated its extensive grassroots network to harass conservative members of Congress blocking the JCPA. NAB is led by leftist president and CEO Curtis LeGeyt, a former Senior Counsel to  the powerful Democrat Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT). The NAB is pushing local broadcasters to call congressional offices demanding that lawmakers drop their opposition in a desperate lobbying barrage.

The NAB has continued its lobbying blitz against conservative members of Congress at a time that the legislative body is trying to prioritize national security by reauthorizing funding for America’s servicemembers.

A senior Senate GOP aide confirmed that the NAB has lobbied the senator’s office regarding the JCPA.

A senior House GOP aide confirmed that the National Association of Broadcasters called the lawmaker regarding the JCPA.
