CISPA’s back, Space Hello Kitty, Anti-gay prom, Don’t join the military
On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin talks to RT Web Producer Andrew Blake about the reintroduction of CISPA, and the implications it may have on personal privacy and net neutrality. Abby then salutes 12-year-old student Lauren Rojas as today’s hero for successfully launching a Hello Kitty toy into space using a weather balloon, and calls out Diana Medley, a special-ed teacher in Indiana, as today’s villain for pushing for a ‘traditional’ high school prom excluding gays and lesbians. BTS then talks to Dream Factory founder Art Jones about the staggering statistics surrounding the HIV/AIDS epidemic in America, and about his film on the subject. Abby wraps up the show with a look at a few of the myths surrounding military service, and the propaganda used by the US Military to encourage young people to enlist.
