This week, Briahna speaks to journalist & activist Abby Martin about the spate of left media censorship that's occurred over the past few weeks. RT America, Russia's 24/7 English-language news channel, has been shuttered -- presumably because the cost of sanctions on Russia made it difficult to sustain, while RT has been banned entirely in Europe. Over 600 episodes of the show Abby hosted for 3 years at RT have been wiped from the internet, along with shows by other RT hosts like Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Chris Hedges & Lee Camp. Even The Hill was barred from YouTube last week, suggesting even corporate-backed news outlets aren't safe. Abby breaks down what happened, how left media can survive under capitalism, accusations of bias against Russia TV, her advocacy for Palestine rights, and what American media is getting wrong about Ukraine.
