Video: RT Anchor Shows Her True (Patriotic) Colors, Resigns On Air
She could have quietly resigned, and left with her resume' still intact. But not Liz Wahl. Not this American loving journalist.
RT- Russia Today is a popular alternative news outlet, and it is funded by the Russia government.
I have posted articles in the past regarding the fact that we should not support RT, but run them out of town for the Communists they are! Rarely have I used their articles or videos in any of my posts, because I understand the motives that are ultimately behind them....anti-Americanism.
How the communists love to foment revolution...it's like a dream to them, and that certainly is one of the goals behind RT.
I hope this wakes people up and more than that, I hope it puts a fire in the pants of the other anchors and reporters over there to do the same. Whereas we still must contend with leftists in all of media...we certainly need not be supporting an entire media outlet funded by the Kremlin for crying out loud!
God Bless Liz Wahl for doing the honorable thing in a day and age where the honorable thing is sacrificed for the economic thing. That took guts. That was real journalism.

An American anchor working for state-owned television station Russia Today quit on air on Wednesday. Liz Wahl, in the network's D.C. bureau, announced she could no longer be "part of a network that whitewashes the actions of Putin.
I'm proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth, and that is why, after this newscast, I am resigning."
"It actually makes me feel sick that I worked there," Wahl told The Daily Beast exclusively.
She had been planning this move for some time. "When I came on board from the beginning I knew what I was getting into, but I think I was more cautious and tried to stay as objective as I could," she said, explaining that she was repeatedly censured by her superiors.
The Kremlin's influence over RT is subtle, Wahl said, but management manipulates its employees, punishing those who stray from the narrative. "In order to succeed there you don’t question," Wahl explained.
RT has had some doozies recently, like "Self-defense forces ranks swell in anticipation of Crimea showdown with radicals" and "Tea, sandwiches, music, photos with self-defense forces mark peaceful Sunday in Simferopol."
On Tuesday, RT anchor Abby Martin denounced Putin's invasion of Crimea. "I can't say enough how strongly I am against any state intervention in a sovereign nation's affairs. What Russia did is wrong." Soon after, Martin's bosses said they would sent her to Crimea, which she declined.
"I just think it’s absurd that we’re just a few blocks away from the White House and this is all able to go along," Wahl said.
