EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin follows up previous remarks on Wikipedia’s editing practices, calling out the site for using personal bias from blocking future entries of an ‘Abby Martin’ page. Abby then speaks with Eugene Puryear, ANSWER Coalition coordinator, about the deadly state of Iraq, highlighting the ongoing wave of violence and instability that’s plagued the city of Fallujah for decades. Abby then calls out a two-tiered justice system that allowed two Fullerton, California police officers to walk free after a beating that claimed the life of homeless citizen Kelly Thomas, and speaks with RT Correspondent Ramon Galindo about the response Kelly’s family and community has had toward the verdict. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Peter Kuznick, historian and co-author of the ‘Untold History of the United States’ about the growing outrage against the construction of another US military base on the Japanese island of Okinawa, as well as the effect the occupation by US forces has had on the communities over the last 60 years.
