Obama revises history, shining a light on corporate fraud, Monsanto spying on activists
On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin goes over the first day of the DC whistleblower summit and comments on the news that President Obama’s website Change.org was scrubbed from the internet, including his pledge to protect whistleblowers. Abby then talks to former Northrop Grumman whistleblower James Holzrichter about his experience in blowing the whistle against fraud within the defense industry, as well as the climate for whistleblowers today. Abby then goes over the case of Katie Barnett, an Ohio resident who had her home mistaken for one that was foreclosed on. Bank thugs who robbed and ransacked Barnett’s home are refusing to pay for the damages. Sadly, her case is far from uncommon. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Alexis Bayden Mayer about a recent revelation from a German newspaper that Monsanto is working in concert with the US government to spy on anti-GMO activists and researchers. They talk about GMO myths, labeling laws, and the recent Monsanto buy-out of Beeologics.
