Watch Russia Today Anchor Boldly Quit Her Job on the Air: ‘I Am Proud to Be an American’
Mar. 5, 2014 6:00pm Jason Howerton   

American news anchor Liz Wahl quit her job at the state-owned TV network Russia Today live on the air Wednesday, saying she is “proud to be an American” and could no longer “be a part of a network that whitewashes the actions of Putin.”

Wahl said she is the grandchild of Hungarian refugees who fled brutal Soviet oppression.

“I am very lucky to have grown up here in the United States,” she said. “I am the daughter of a veteran, my partner is a physician at a military base, where he sees everyday the firsthand accounts of the ultimate prices that people pay for this country.”

“That is why personally I cannot be part of a network that is funded by the Russian government that whitewashes the actions of Putin. I am proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth. And that is why after this newscast I am resigning,” Wahl concluded.

Good. Well done, Ma'am.
Before you bitch about the youth of today ... think about who raised them.

I applaud her integrity. There are hundreds of so-called journalists who should take lessons from her. The truth comes first.

MSNBC will hire her in the USA and she'll be a shill for Obama.
Trump has created a cult and looks more and more like Hitler every day.
