Heroic beavers and pitiful prosecutors, 5 crazy state laws, Hate speech and perpetual war

On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin highlights a group of beavers in Utah as the day’s heroes for containing a Chevron oil spill from entering the bay of a natural Utah reserve, and calls out Butler County Prosecutor Michael Gmoser for wasting time and resources in the indictment of famed groundhog Punxsutawney Phil, instead of focusing on real crime in his county. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Nafeez Ahmed, director of the Institute for Policy Research, about his new project cataloging hate speech, 'Wikidpedia,' and how the War on Terror relies on the perpetuation of Islamophobia.
