RT’s Abby Martin: “RT Tows Perspective of Russian Foreign Policy Just As…Entire Corporate Media Tows Perspective of US Establishment”


After speaking out in opposition of Russia’s invasion of Crimea, RT’s Abby Martin spoke with CNN’s Piers Morgan about corporate media and its kowtowing to advertisers.

Morgan starts the interview by asking Martin about coworker Liz Wahl work resigned on air in protest of what the Russian government is doing.

Martin said that she supports Wahl and was worried about being fired from her own job: “I knew going into that that I could put my job on the line, considering how the corporate media has fired multiple anchors for simply speaking out against the Iraq War.”

Martin also reiterated that Russia Today’s editors don’t interfere with the editorial content of “Breaking The Set,” the show that Martin hosts.

“They give me the complete editorial freedom to do whatever I want on my show, Breaking The Set, and all I really can speak about is my show.” she explains.

Martin said that Russian government-owned RT is no different than any other media outlet.

“RT tows the perspective of Russian foreign policy just as the entire corporate media apparatus tows the perspective of the U.S. establishment,” she added.

She said that she has a problem with not only RT’s coverage of recent events, but the entire media coverage.

Martin was bothered by seeing “the corporate media coverage almost wanting to revive the Cold War” and continuing to “warmonger and fearmonger the American people.” She asked Morgan, “Why do I have to work for RT to tell the truth about corporations and the U.S. government? I mean, seriously, you guys are beholden to advertisers that you cannot criticize.”
