EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin discusses the coverage of the Ferguson protests following the news that Officer Darren Wilson will not be indicted for the killing of teenager Michael Brown, and how it compares to the portrayal of riots over sports events and festivals. Abby then speaks with RT Correspondent, Alexey Yaroshevsky, about the mood of the community following a night of both peaceful protest and destruction. Abby then speaks with two activists on the ground in Ferguson, Zaki Baruti, President of the Universal African People’s Organization and Casandra Fairbanks from the Free Thought Project about what the mainstream media has missed in its coverage of Ferguson. Abby then goes over the use of tear gas on protesters, despite the fact that it’s an internationally banned chemical weapon. BTS wraps up the show with a look at the legal aspects of the case with attorney and co-host of Ring of Fire radio, Mike Papantonio.
