​Russia Today = ISIS, de-flate gate airheads & amazing asteroids

Breaking the Set’s Abby Martin discusses the sentencing of journalist, Barrett Brown, for crimes related to posting a link to publically available information. Abby looks at the media’s obsession with a football scandal surrounding the New England patriots football team, while ignoring far more important stories such as a first-hand account by a Gitmo prisoner of brutal treatment and the continuing crackdown on free speech in France in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo massacre. Abby also speaks with Ali al-Ahmed, Director of the Institute for Gulf Affairs about the death of Saudi Arabian monarch, King Abdullah, and what it means for the future of the country. There’s an interview with Dr Wayne B. Jonas, Director & CEO of the Samueli Institute, about new research being done on the Placebo effect and scientific studies that have been done on the power of the mind when it comes to self-healing. BTS wraps up the show with a discussion with RT Correspondent, Lindsay France, about the Ceres asteroid and what it could mean for the future of life on other worlds.
