Russia Today anchor and correspondent Liz Wahl announced her resignation live on air Wednesday, saying she couldn't "be part of a network that whitewashes the actions" of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Wahl began her remarks by referencing comments another personality on the government-funded TV network made criticizing Russia's invasion of the Ukrainian region of Crimea.
"Last night RT made headlines when one of our anchors went on the record and said Russian intervention in Crimea is wrong and indeed, as a reporter on this network, I face many ethical and moral challenges," Wahl said.
Slacker and Steve said the thing that sucks about working in radio is you never get to have a blaze of glory moment. When management decides you’re done, you don't get to go on the air one more time. Everyone kind of pretends that you never existed.
How did you quit a job and go out in a blaze of glory?
