Russia Today Anchor Quits the Network, On-Air
Following hot on the heels of the fluoride truther lady, another RT anchor realizes exactly who’s she’s working for. But going one step further and actually quitting on-air. No word on whether it was to avoid complimentary plane tickets to Crimea:
Russia Today anchor and correspondent Liz Wahl announced her resignation live on air Wednesday, saying she couldn’t “be part of a network that whitewashes the actions” of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Wahl began her remarks by referencing comments another personality on the government-funded TV network made criticizing Russia’s invasion of the Ukranian region of Crimea.
I can’t help wondering why this, of all things, was the last straw for Wahl. I mean sure, blatant invasion/annexation of a country is an objectionable offense, but it’s a pretty low bar at that point.
