Abby Martin is a journalist who presents The Empire Files for the Venezuelan broadcaster teleSUR.

Previously, she featured on RT's 'Breaking the Set' programme.[1] Before hosting her own show, Martin had worked for two years as a correspondent for RT America.

She is also an artist and activist, and helped found the citizen journalism website Media Roots.[2]

The Empire Files

In 2015 Abby Martin launched The Empire Files. Martin directs the show, and journalist and activist Michael Prysner produces it.[3]

The Empire Files is hosted by teleSUR, which is funded by several Latin American governments, but is editorially independent. Martin said:

"The show is totally independent of teleSUR... We merely sell them the content; they have zero control over anything we do".

Martin and Prysner received death threats for their reporting on protests in Venezuela.[4]

For The Empire Files, Abby Martin also reported from the Palestinian territories, the West Bank and the Amazon rainforest.[5][6]

For nineteen years the United States government and its secret agents have been trying to overthrow the Venezuela political process. Why might that be? Well, there are many reasons but the biggest among them has the smallest name: OIL.
