Anchor quits live on air
March 7 , 2014
There has been some drama at the Russia Today TV network and American anchor Liz Wahl announced that she's quitting while she was being broadcasted live.
Wahl explained she didn't want to be part of a network, which "whitewashes the actions of Putin." Her former colleague Abby Martin was also in the spotlight recently when she condemned Russia's moves in Ukraine.
"Just because I work here, for RT, doesn't mean I don't have editorial independence, and I can't stress enough how strongly I am against any military intervention in sovereign nations' affairs," Martin said. Martin is now asked to go to Crimea so she could see the situation herself but she said she doesn't have an intention of going.
