Congress Redefines Journalism, Rocky Anderson’s Red Line to Impeach Obama
On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin examines a move by the US Congress to redefine what it means to be a journalist – by preventing independent media being able to protect themselves against revealing their sources. Abby then speaks to former Salt Lake City Mayor and 2012 Justice Party Presidential Candidate Rocky Anderson about the Syria crisis, and NSA spying. And with all eyes on Syria, Abby calls out the corporate media for failing to report on other important issues such as immigration reform and lawmakers attempting to extend legislation that shields Monsanto from future lawsuits. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with Maryam Henein, investigative journalist and director of the film ‘The Vanishing of the Bees’ about a phenomenon known as Colony Collapse Disorder, which not only threatens honeybees, but a $16 billion food industry in the US.
