(Before It's News)


The show will document a world plagued by rampant inequality and endless war through rigorous investigative journalism.

Journalist Abby Martin, former host of Breaking The Set, which screened on Russia Today, returns to television with her new show The Empire Files, presented by teleSUR English and Executive Producer Paul Jay of The Real News Network. The Empire Files is a weekly, documentary-style investigative report airing Fridays beginning Sept. 4 on teleSUR English. The show will focus an incisive lens on power, injustice and wars being waged on human rights and civil liberties in the United States and across the globe.

“Neocon warmongers don’t want you to watch Abby Martin, and with good reason: She routinely kicks their asses and literally takes names.”

The show’s mission is to document a world plagued by rampant inequality and endless war by putting an spotlight on power, corruption and globalization through rigorous investigative journalism. The Empire Files will cover local and global issues leaking from the empire, its endless war on terror, and the disastrous symptoms for human and civil rights at home and abroad. Abby Martin will lead a team providing coverage and analysis from the field with a fearless, aggressive edge, backed by rigorous fact-driven reporting and first-hand accounts.

A wide range of experts, scholars and journalists have given their support to the project. Birgitta Jónsdóttir, member of the Icelandic Parliament and former WikiLeaks spokeswoman, said: “We are living at transformative times, where nothing is as it seems, important news is not covered. That is why we need aggressive reporting to expose and understand it, Abby has the depth and courage to do it!”

“Abby Martin broke the set bringing us the news nobody else had the guts to report. I welcome her continued truthtelling at telesSUR,” former CIA analyst and torture whistleblower John Kiriakou noted.
