EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin cuts through the corporate media’s coverage of Angelina Jolie’s double mastectomy, and highlights the Supreme Court case at the heart of the debate over whether or not human genes can be patented. Abby then talks to Sandra Park, staff attorney with the ACLU and representative for the plaintiffs in Molecular Pathology v Myriad Genetics, Inc, about the larger implications of the case. Abby then talks to Dr. John Trumpbour, research director at Harvard Law School’s labor and work life program, about the theory of the clash of civilizations, the idea that a culture or war is inevitable and inherent in the relationship between the East and West; Hollywood’s homogenization of US culture and Harvard’s perpetuation of the ruling class.
