In this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin, discusses a new report from Oxfam International indicating the number of billionaires has doubled in the years since the global financial crisis, while child poverty has increased in over 20 developed nations around the world. Abby then goes over the disturbing developments of an investigation into the disappearance of 43 Mexican students and how the story is emblematic of the incredible level of corruption and betrayal within the Mexican government. Abby speaks with RT Correspondent, Marina Portnaya, about a new national security ‘leaker’ being dubbed the ‘Second Snowden’ and why the FBI allegedly searched his or her house recently. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Mickey Huff, director of Project Censored, about some of the top 25 censored stories of 2014, covering everything from the lack of police brutality statistics to the impact of ocean acidification.
