RT has given me opportunities I will be eternally thankful for and hosting Breaking the Set has been the best and most invaluable experience of my life. I never imagined the kind of support it would generate, proving how many people are hungry for raw truth and systemic change.
Throughout the course of the show, I’m most proud of the stories we’ve done on the road – Pine Ridge, Detroit, Gulf Coast, Guantanamo Bay and soon to be released Cuba. As such, after almost three years of reporting from the studio I’ve decided to focus on investigative field reporting.
Please note I’m not stopping or going anywhere. If I can’t find a platform to host my show vision with the same editorial freedom, I will turn to crowdsourcing. And until I establish my next venture I’ll be writing daily, podcasting, producing video shorts and doing talks around the world.
Please follow me on facebook, youtube, twitter and my website Media Roots to stay tuned.
I’m excited to put all my heart into the last two weeks of the most hard hitting show on TV and celebrate a great run, all of which wouldn’t have been possible without you.
Much love and appreciation to everyone for supporting me and my future endeavors.
Never Stop Breaking the Set.
Sadly, my now old generation has handed younger generations an almost impossible task of saving some semblance of human culture on a severely damaged globe. I am so impressed with your courage and passion to rock the boat for drastic change. Just know that a fairly large percentage of us older Americans see much more clearly today than we did 20, 30 or 40 years ago, partly thanks to you and other young culture warriors.

While I’m sad to see “Breaking the Set” go, I am more thankful that you and your team were able to accomplish the amazing results you broadcast and I look for to the great work you will do in the future. I can easily see you crowd-sourcing a new, more in-depth and focused show/series with more time allotted to a location or story, something like an “Abby Martin @” where you have at least a month on piece–more time than a daily or weekly piece but not so much time as a documentary that lacks immediacy. Also using web access to link updates and activist actions.
Thanks for the great work and best wishes on future endeavors!
