EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin calls out the corporate press for their round-the-clock coverage of ‘pope smoke’ whilst neglecting the Guantanamo hunger strikers, and the DHS buying 1.6 billon rounds of ammunition. Abby then talks to Pete Eyre, from Cop Block, about the NYPD’s involvement in the death of a Kimani Gray and their egregious overstepping of civil liberties. Abby then talks to Michael Dannenberg, of Education Trust, about the trillion-dollar student debt bubble. BTS wraps up the show with a look at Charles and David Koch’s financial empire & the extent of their influence in the corporate takeover of America.
