EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin goes over a few of the most egregious cases of police abuse in recent days, including a special needs student assaulted by an officer in Oakland California, and a toddler in Georgia fighting for his life after a flash grenade exploded in his face during a police raid. Abby then reports on the oil and gas boom that’s attracting energy companies to the Florida Everglades, and speaks with activist Karen Dwyer of the Stonecrab Alliance, about how much protected land is at risk by this oil exploration and what it could mean for the unique biodiversity found in these wetlands. Abby then calls out the corporate media for the sensationalized coverage of the freed US soldier, Bowe Bergdahl, and turning the story into partisan wedge — all the while avoiding coverage of stories such as the Supreme Court rejecting journalist James Risen’s appeal to not be forced to testify against a source in his book, as well as the underreported news that the NSA has been datamining photos from social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with economist and University of Massachusetts professor, Richard Wolff, discussing the future stability of the European Union discussing the political divisions and economic strain that has characterized the region for the last six years.
