EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin discusses the worst cases of ebola hysteria, citing schools in New Jersey and Maine that have kept teachers and students from attending class for merely travelling to places like Rwanda and Dallas. Abby then discusses the effort by the Obama Administration to suppress the release of never-before-seen photos from the Abu Ghraib prison scandal of 2004 as well as the fact that top National Security Council lawyers are considering whether to regress back to the Bush Administration’s view on torture at overseas sites. Abby then speaks with Terry O’Neill, President of the National Organization for Women, about the battle in Texas over keeping abortion clinics open across the state. BTS wraps up the show with an exclusive interview with co-founders of Citizen Radio and authors of the new book, #NEWSFAIL, Allison Kilkenny and Jamie Kilstein, about the biggest flaws in corporate comedy news and why topics like feminism and climate change are covered so poorly by cable news.Share
