Norman Lear

Norman Lear (July 27, 1922 - December 5, 2023) was an American television producer known for his sitcoms that were popular in the 1970s, such as All in the Family (1971–79).

In 1981, Lear founded the ironically-named People For the American Way, a godless liberal organization that aggressively promotes anti-American secularism and feebly tries to discredit Christian political activity. In 2007 the organization had a budget of $13 million, mostly raised by direct mail, which it used to organize local chapters around the country, especially in university towns.
