    'Russia Today' anchor Liz Wahl quits live on air over Putinís military action [W:15]

    Bravo Liz Wahl!
    Just yesterday, another American RT show host, Abby Martin, Criticized the invasion On Air as she signed off; saying she had editorial independence.
    We have a few posters here who oft use this Subversive source/Russian STATE Mouthpiece.

    SEE IT: 'Russia Today' anchor Liz Wahl quits live on air over Vladimir Putin’s military action in Crimea
    Wahl said she faces several 'ethical and moral challenges' as a reporter for the Russian-funded TV network. 'I’m proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth, and that is why, after this newscast, I’m resigning," she said.

    A "Russia Today" anchor broke through the Iron Curtain.
    Liz Wahl, who was a Washington, D.C. correspondent for the state-owned television station, quit live on-air Wednesday because she does not agree with the network’s backing of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s military intervention in Ukraine’s Crimea region.

    The self-described “Filipina-Hungarian-American” said she faces several “ethical and moral challenges” as a reporter for the network.
    Wahl described herself as the daughter of a veteran who grew up in the United States. Her partner, she said, is a military-base physician “where he sees every day first hand accounts of the ultimate prices people pay for this country.”

    “And that is why personally, I cannot be part of a network funded by the Russian government that whitewashes the actions of Putin,” she said as she went off-script on live TV. “I’m proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth, and that is why, after this newscast, I’m resigning.”

    During her minute-long statement, Wahl also mentioned the “international headlines” that Abby Martin, a host of the show, made Tuesday night when she said “Russian intervention in the Crimea is wrong.”

    This is an example of the integrity that Russia Today anchors have, only the best anchors are hired by Russian television. I advise everyone to give Russia today a look and decide for themselves. You would never see a fox news or CNN anchor give up their paycheck for the truth.

    What an incredibly odd statement.

    Even though I agree with her sentiment, I must also applaud her integrity for putting her career on the line to stand for her principals. Honestly, I hope she stays safe since I would imagine there would be ramifications for speaking out like that.

    She was interviewed by Anderson Cooper earlier this evening.
    In just over 6 minutes she elaborates.
    video within Link below at bottom of article.
    She has felt this way for quite some time.
    The final straw apparently was when they Cut out an interview segment she did with Ron Paul; and also Falsely portrayed the Ukrainian opposition as 'Neo-Nazis', etc.
    She says they oft "Bash America" and have been whitewashing Putin's actions.

    There was also Amber Lyons an Emmy award winning Journalist who quit CNN, because CNN would coverup for crimes committed by the Bahrain Government. I actually almost forgot about that.

    and that has NOTHING to do with this string.
    Clownish tu quoque reply as always.

    You are a defender of RT as You have similar views. (anti-America, Anti-Israel-Jewish, 9-11/other Conspiracist)
    Just above, You Falsely portrayed PutinTV as having integrity.
    She quit because they do NOT have integrity.
    They are Subversive in America.

    Polonium in her tea. I think she'd better leave the country soon.
