    YOU are a defender of RT as You have similar sentiments.
    You Falsely portrayed PutinTV just above as having ingerity.
    Dhe wqoye because they do NOT have integrity.
    They are Subversive in America,
    Sound familiar?
    Actually, it has something to do with the string. It shows how anchors from both Russia and America quit from major news networks because of questionable journalism practices. I approach things with more of an open mind than you, usually when anyone disagrees with you blood starts shooting out your ears right away.

    Opposition is quietly destroyed in Putins Russia, the Russian media is mostly under Kremlin or Kremlin Allied Oligarch control.

    This woman is a moron. RT has always been "after the US" and she chooses now to quit her job? What has she been blind for the period she has been employed there or what? Why not quit when RT accuses the US and GOP for war crimes and worse? Why not quit when RT runs expose after expose on how "bad the US" is on a subject?

    While I dont like RT and its editorial stance, what she did is nothing but a self opportunistic bull****, and the American media is of course eating it up and she now has a guaranteed job at an American network for what she has done.. something that she could not get before that.

    Now the irony here is that while RT might be pro-Russian (duh, it is funded by the Russian government), the American media are also not exactly free nor talking the truth on the subject of Ukraine. NBC Nightly News last night was just a travesty, and even CNN International is showing its utter bias these days... it is a shame.

    PeteEU hello!

    Somehow it doesn't surprise me that that would be your take.

    At least on RT, you can get important stories about what's going on over here. I don't expect them to cover Russia objectively...but then again, Fox News, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, have nothing of substance, and fill their airtime with phony Dem vs. Repub drama, without informing the audience that corporate sponsors effectively own all of the major candidates of both parties!
    Why should our nastiness be the baggage of an apish past and our kindness uniquely human? Why should we not seek continuity with other animals for our "noble" traits as well?

    My first thought was that she's vying for a better job at a cable channel that's a step up, financially and viewership. Seems kind of drama queen-ish, so I had to ask, why would she decide to be drama queen-ish, and my thought was to get noticed, and she did. And let's see if/when she's offered a position at one of the more western media outlets that will appreciate her patriotism.

    Dont get me wrong.. I in no way support what RT does or says, and any one who works for them can not be called journalists and the fact that she quit shows she might have a future... but the way she quit is for self serving purposes and not some heroic moment thing. In fact she said that she could not work for a news organisation that is funded by the Russian government... then why the hell did she take the job in the first place?

    This is self promotion pure and simple.
