FISA spying, 'Fiscal Cliff' diversion, Healthy government skepticism
On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby responds to viewers who left some nice (and not-so-nice) comments. Abby then talks to columnist and political economist Paul Craig Roberts about whether the latest job numbers are phony, and if the 'fiscal cliff' was just a diversion. She then speaks to Electronic Frontier Foundation Legal Director Cindy Cohn about the FISA bill, and the pending EFF lawsuit against the Justice Department. BTS wraps up the show with a salute to Tony Tolbert, a man who gave up his home for a homeless family to live in for a year, and Abby calls out political commentator Ari Fleischer for only donating to charities for tax deduction write-offs.
