Perhaps reflecting the zeitgeist, the BBC has been searching for a song to broadcast should the end of the world, or apocalypse, be upon us: Earlier this month we covered the revelation that Ted Turner,…






With conventional, rational methods of investigation still coming up short, is it time to consider the paranormal in regards to the baffling disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370? A few days ago anchor Don Lemon queried a CNN panel of experts as to whether a black hole (by which he presumably meant a wormhole) may be the only explanation crazy enough to somehow make sense.

CNN’s ratings have been truly terrible in the last few years, so recently parent company Time Warner decided to make NBC reject Jeff Zucker the new head of the network, presumably to bring back the crowds.

On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin talks about Obama the ‘Drone King’s’ kill list which one official has called a macabre “baseball card” set of “terrorists” and a discusses the dangers of Obama’s drone wars. Abby then interviews former CNN Investigative Reporter, Amber Lyon, about CNN’s corrupt media empire, calling into question a media establishment where censorship can be bought.


Abby Martin brings up the issue of global surveillance and drone warfare and talks to NIAC Policy Director Jamal Abdi about the possibility of war with Iran. MSNBC is called out for political bias, and RT Producer Ramon Galindo speaks about the impending doom of nuclear reactors built by fault lines. She breaks down the corruption of the NYPD and asks: why are they bringing their criminal enterprise to Tel Aviv, Israel?

Michael Moore maybe is a blowhard, but he’s alright with me if he can make Wolf Blitzer look like this much of a douche. Mike went on Blitzer’s show to discuss his new Wall Street documentary Capitalism: A Love Story and the grey-haired host went for the jugular, accusing Moore of being a socialist and a hypocrite (for acting concerned about the fate of poor people, despite not being poor himself). Watch Moore rip him to shreds.
