On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin remarks on the absurd news that two environmental activists in Oklahoma were charged with staging a terrorism hoax after unveiling two glitter-covered banners in protest of the Devon Energy oil company’s fracking practices. Abby then speaks with gender studies expert Dr. Jackson Katz, discussing the underlying forces of gender politics and the role of masculinity when it comes to violent crime. Abby then comments on a recent announcement by pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline that the firm will no longer spend millions of dollars annually to pay doctors to promote their drugs. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with British MP George Galloway, discussing his upcoming film “The Killing of Tony Blair,” and his brand new show on RT, Sputnik: Orbiting the world with George Galloway.

Long time watcher first time commenter. In my opinion you are doing a fine job. Not just current events, but current events through the eyes of an interesting young lady. Presentation is everything, and something tells me you are pretty popular with certain demographics. I would have to say that a good way to describe you is "statuesque&quo t;. But at the end of the day the issues you address are real and your questions are very thoughtful. Keep it up!

Classic George. Hate to say it, but Sputnik isn't so good. George seems more comfortable as a guest than a host. Thanks for a snappy and informative conversation.
