Video: My Interview with Top TV Journalist Abby Martin @ RT By Sibel Edmonds

In the Midst of Intense Pessimism – Causes for Optimistic Pauses 

A great example is Abby Martin at RT. Not only is she brilliant, informed, articulate, and very outspoken (and beautiful), but that she is one of us: a tireless member of our irate minority circle.
