    As Glenn Greenwald noted yesterday, the only two U.S. news hosts who spoke out against the planned Iraq Invasion in 2003 were fired shortly thereafter. And that explains why very few reporters over here on MSM have any principles!

    There was no drama involved similar to this, but isn't that what happened with their first female celebrity anchor - Alyona Minkowski? She seemed a lot more radical when she was on RT than she is now doing video pieces for Huffpo...but it likely pays better money.

    I had only seen Alonya once or twice before she left. I've never seen her on HP as I don't go there, I don't watch RT anymore either. So I don't have a legitimate opinion on Alonya.

    My opinion about Ms. Wahl's drama is based solely on watching the clip of her exit speech.

    Huffingtonpost at first, seemed like the great breakthrough in online journalism...but that was before they started focusing on celebrity bs and sexploitation 'top 20' lists, like Daily Beast. They're just time wasters designed to get more clicks to sell to the advertisers. Speaking of which, before I deleted my tabs to Huffpo links, I found they were getting to be the absolute worst site for popups and other annoying ads. The straw that broke the camel's back for me, was when Arianna finally confirmed what a fraud she is by selling the site to AOL for 300 million, while refusing to pay bloggers for their contributions. Quite the business model....a news aggregator that collects free content online, begins with an army of unpaid bloggers...and then sell the operation for 300 mil and pocket most of the money for yourself!

    I'm tuning in to RT more than usual over the last few days, because of the situation going on in the Ukraine. Of the foreign news channels I get on my satellite package, RT is the only one on basic, while the others (Foxnews, MSNBC, BBC, DW, and CNN now) are all on premium packages...so, I don't watch them. I take most my news...aside from local news, from online sources anyway.

    She is American, and lives here. I'm sure she'll be fine.

    Wahl said she faces several 'ethical and moral challenges' as a reporter for the Russian-funded TV network. 'Iím proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth, and that is why, after this newscast, Iím resigning," she said.

    Yeah, if only the FOX reporters had resigned instead of compromising their ethics and supporting the invasion of Iraq on false charges of WMD. What a crock of **** this is.

    Well, that's one way to get a job at a big American t.v. Network...quit a Russian one while on-the-air.

    Hell yes, she didn't do anything courageous, she'll be snapped up in a minute, and she's a little firecracker. She's not going to be on unemployment.
