Abby Martin is the always beautiful and sometimes controversial host of ‘Breaking the Set‘ on RT known for exposing the most important issues of the day, including Senator Rand Paul‘s endorsement of Romney 2012, and speaking her mind about 9/11 truth, and the Ukraine/Russia situation.
Abby Martin recently made headlines speaking out against the country of her network’s namesake, condemning the President of Russia for an invasion of Crimea.
Just because I work here for RT doesn’t mean I don’t have editorial independence
RT toes a perspective of the Russian foreign policy just as the entire corporate media toes the perspective of the US establishment.
The controversy over her support for 9/11 truth flared up following Martin’s fame for speaking out against her employer, with blogs like NYT, Raw Story and Mediate, attempting to smear 9/11 questions as lunatic. Abby Martin responded with an open letter Being smeared as a “9/11 Truther” in the MSM responding with a controversial statement about the 9/11 attacks not being an inside job.
I do not think the attacks were an “inside job.” The language here is used as a discrediting factor, and it’s irresponsible to assert such an unknowable claim. I distanced myself from that language years ago.
The 9/11 truth community has been discussing the wave of controversy and outrage.
9/11 is an inside job
In 2008, Abby Martin appeared marching at a Santa Monica 9/11 Truth March in support of First Responders, she was interviewed and made clear her point of view at that time was 9/11 is an inside job.
I’ve researched it for three years, and every single thing I uncover solidifies my belief that it was an inside job that our government was complicit in what happened.
It’s hard to believe that the organizer of San Diego 9/11 Truth Meet-up would turn on the truth movement 6 years later. And fortunately, Abby Martin wrote that she remains skeptical about the official story of 9/11 and will continue to ask questions on her show.
A “truther” on this issue is nothing to be ashamed of.
The 9/11 truth controversy apparently went as far as saying Abby Martin sold out and went ‘full Veitch’ in reference to the infamous Charlie Veich turning against 9/11 truth in a bid to go mainstream on the BBC.
RT is an outside job?
Abby Martin discussed this with Buzzsaw host Tyrel Ventura, yes it’s the Russian perspective:
The question must be asked, is Abby Martin’s turn on the 9/11 truth movement some sort of ploy to distract the truthers? and is Abby Martin being used for her sexiness, similar to the way Fox News and most hot morning newswomen are depicted in a front-on camera angle wearing short skirts? A highly savvy content delivery technique:
In writing this piece I don’t want you to draw the impression that people should not be able to wear what they want, because how could I say I stand for liberty otherwise. But that doesn’t mean that pointing out a possible inside job to boost ratings is off limits.
According to Forbes the effect that Sexy News Anchors have on male viewers is an addled capitivation a new study from Indiana University reports that, for men, “emphasis on the sexual attractiveness of female news anchors distracts from memory formation for news content.” And shockingly the opposite for women, their attention is drawn to sexy anchor women out of a longing to relate to the popular girl.
It’s quite clear that Abby Martin is naturally beautiful with a hot sense for fashion, she also appears to be a real truth seeker unafraid to explore issues that the alternative media reports on. Of course, the 9/11 conspiracy being an outside job or an inside job is endlessly debatable, because the official story is so questionable. But is this all a a big set-up being played on the truth movement?
If Abby Martin goes on to work for a more mainstream, less ‘truther friendly’ network then this caution might be warranted. Either way I have a feeling that the host of ‘Breaking the Set’ is considering her options with the RT network, because even if she has full editorial control over her news segments her pay-cheque is still coming from a corporate pyramid that the President she accused of invading a sovereign country is on top of.
