EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin talks about JLENS Blimps, surveillance balloons set to spy on the entire east coast by the end of 2014. Abby then remarks on a small victory at Guantanamo Bay Prison, where a US Appeals Court ruled the detainees will, for the first time, have the right to challenge their force feeding in federal court. Abby then speaks with Chad Peace, legal strategist at enpartisainship.org about the need to end partisan primary elections, prescribing a grassroots strategy to accomplish this. Abby then calls attention to the 2014 World Press Freedom Index from Reporters without Borders, and discussing the dismal ranking of Eritrea, an East African country with a worse record of press freedoms than North Korea. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with editor of bradblog.com, Brad Friedman, and co-host of the Green News Report, Desi Doyen, about California’s worst drought in 500 years and other environmental issues in the news.
