We’ve established here in this space that there are few things funnier in life than a local TV newscast blooper.

There is nothing funny however, about what Russia Today anchor Liz Wahl did on the air  yesterday.

The  increasingly volatile  situation developing in the  Crimean peninsula between Russian and Ukraine forces is forcing some in the media to question how they’re covering the story–or if they should even be covering the story at all.

Rather than work for a network that, in her words, “whitewashes the action of (Russian President) Putin,”  Wahl decided to  quit.

Live, on the air.

A couple of thoughts:

Who knew that there was an entire TV network and news division operating here in the United States which is funded by the Russian government?   Wahl was the Washington correspondent for RT or Russia Today.

More importantly, regardless of what you think of her stance on this issue, that took incredible courage to do live on the air!

What do you think?  Check out the video below.
