EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin remarks on the one year anniversary of internet freedom and civil liberties activist, Aaron Swartz, drawing attention to the aggressive crusade by the US justice department to convict him for freeing information. Abby then highlights efforts in India that have led to the total eradication of the Polio disease. Abby then speaks with RT Correspondent Meghan Lopez, discussing the recent chemical spill in West Virginia, at a site that hasn’t been inspected since 1991, and what this means for the future safety of the US water supply. Abby then goes over the editing practices of the online encyclopedia, Wikipedia, and calls out the websites editors for their lack of all-encompassing points of view. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with independent journalist Rania Khalek, discussing the corporate media whitewashing the real legacy of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
