CIA’s Bin Laden demon doll, marching for true democracy & sole breaks the stage
On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin remarks on the CIA’s ridiculous plan to work with toy-maker Hasbro to create a Bin Laden action figure with a removable demon face. Abby then speaks with Kai Newkirk, co-founder of 99Rise and organizer with the California March for Democracy, a 480-mile walk from Los Angeles to Sacramento to raise awareness about the need to overturn Citizens United and take money out of politics. Abby then speaks with independent journalist Mnar Muhawesh, of Mint Press News, about the growing popularity of alternative media, discussing the instability in Syria and Iraq from a perspective you’re not likely to hear on the corporate news. BTS wraps up the show with an exclusive interview and performance by hip hop artist ‘Sole’ performing the songs ‘Bagdad Shake’ and ‘Hey Liberals’.
