Russia Today anchor Liz Wahl quit her job live on air, because of how RT is reporting about Putin's actions in the Ukraine. RT has responded.
Yesterday anchor Liz Wahl quit live on the Russia Today channel. She said that she cannot continue to work for RT because of how they white wash Putin's actions in the Ukraine.
The video of Liz Wahl quitting has gone viral in the past hours. You can watch the video below. Liz Wahl presented the reasons for her actions in a well prepared manner. RT has responded with a statement calling Liz Wahl's public resignation unprofessional.
The network says that she should have adress her issues with the editor and if there is no resolution quit like a professional and not make a big public show, which RT calls nothing more than a self-promotional stunt. The thing is that quitting live on video is so hip right now that it even became a Super Bowl commercial.
RT has published the video of Liz Wahl resignation on Youtube, which is a good move as they ran ads on it. This way they get a piece of the viral action.
