EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin reports on a recent legal settlement in Texas, where a family was awarded $3 Million after suffering from health problems stemming from a fracking operation near their home. Abby then goes over the case of four Muslim American men who are suing the US government for allegedly placing them on a no-fly-list after refusing to serve as informants for the FBI. Abby then speaks with Georganne Chapin, director of Intact America, about the decision many parents have to make regarding male circumcision, outlining the misconceptions of the practice and the financial interests at play. Abby then calls out the corporate media’s incessant coverage of the Cliven Bundy Ranch story, whilst ignoring other important newsworthy issues such as record drone strikes in Yemen, the kidnapping of 230 Nigerian girls and the end of ‘net neutrality’. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Jane Bussman, comedian and author of the book ‘A Journey to the Dark Heart of Nameless Unspeakable Evil’ a comedic yet sensible account of her experience hunting for Ugandan warlord, Joseph Kony, also discussing the negative impact of foreign aid in Africa.Share
