Anchor for Russian TV says she's quitting in protest of Putin coverage

By Matt Pearce
March 5, 2014, 5:59 p.m.

An American journalist said she was quitting a Russian-backed TV station in an on-air protest Wednesday, telling viewers "I cannot be part of a network funded by the Russian government, that whitewashes the actions of [President Vladimir] Putin."

Liz Wahl, an anchor for the English-language network RT, made her announcement after criticism that RT, also known as Russia Today, had taken a sympathetic stance on the Russian intervention in Ukraine's Crimean peninsula.

A day earlier, RT journalist Abby Martin made on-air remarks critical of the Russian government's actions in Crimea, telling viewers, "What Russia did was wrong."


No spin..

Here's the video, you decide for yourselves.

I can relate that's why i don't what CNN, and MSNBC,NBC,CBS,ABC, and Jimmy Fallon.

I don't want to watch any network who 'white washes' their leaders actions.

A journalist with integrity?

What the French, toast!

Good for her. Plus she's cute enough to get a spot on Fox, bet they'll pick her up!

Oh wait. . . . . she has integrity. . . .

My Salutations and Cheers go out to Liz Wahl for her courage
and moral high ground in this matter.
We all know that this was not an easy decision for her,
as well as the jeopardy she has placed on her career and
personal being.

This Gal has Guts and Gumption.

Thanks for posting this Slayer, and saving me the effort.

In a way, its nice to see her take a stand. Wish more US journalists would do the same thing but then we wouldnt have any mainstream news... (thats not a bad thing).

On the other hand, what a mental patient.

She does realize that the country which shes so proud of, the United States, is Russia x 100.

I mean Jesus Christmas lady. Her self-righteous, misguided BS is staggering.

Get a clue.

Its going on a century of US war crimes.

USMC Major General Smedley Butler:


I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902–1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested.

Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.

Morals and guts.This is a brutal reminder of how cowardly and complacent most of the "journalists" in the msm are. Hope someone sees the value and hires her for real reporting.

I agree Neo, It happens here in "The West" daily.
In general, ALL worldwide MSN appears to be Infiltrated.

Regardless, The Stance Liz solidified is commendable and with
great merit.

Best,
