Russia Today Reporter Resigns Due To Truth In Reporting


Despite American right-wing "love of Putin," we suggest Putin's leadership in the region is showing signs of Cold War callousness and insanity. When the Russia Today (RT) reporters continue via resignation to extract themselves from Russian propaganda, the world must pay attention. 

Evidence of Putin's imperialist ambitions and his obvious longing for life akin tot he former Soviet Union, is ever-present and growing. Despite, the Russian leaders 'dirty skirt", US conservatives are on record with admiration.

Media Matters

The Daily Show

Jon Stewart captures a few right-wing propagandist while oozing over Putin. We have to remember, these are multi-millionaire media personalities paid handsomely to broadcast against the US president and progressive America. We never heard one complimentary word from the Right regarding Putin during years in which he shared leadership of a nation along with Bush "W."  Not one word of disparagement!

Along with American oozing over the Russian leader, we continue to experience reports for Russian media (outside of Russia) who are separating themselves from reporting they feel is wrong.

A London-based correspondent for state-owned TV network Russia Today resigned Friday to protest the network's coverage of a Malaysia Airlines plane that was shot down over Eastern Ukraine. 
Reporter Sara Firth told The Press Gazette, a British publication covering journalism news, that RT's coverage of the crash of MH17 was "the straw that broke the camel's back for me."

The Raw Story


Firth told Buzzfeed that she resigned because she the felt the Kremlin-funded news channel was trying to pin the blame for the apparent shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 on the Ukrainian government. 
“It was the total disregard to the facts. We threw up eyewitness accounts from someone on the ground openly accusing the Ukrainian government, and a correspondent in the studio pulled up a plane crash before that the Ukrainian government had been involved in and said it was ‘worth mentioning’,” Firth explained. “It’s not worth mentioning. It’s Russia Today all over, it’s flirting with that border of overtly lying. You’re not telling a lie, you’re just bringing something up. I didn’t want to watch a story like that, where people have lost loved ones and we’re handling it like that.” 
“I couldn’t do it any more. Every single day we’re lying and finding sexier ways to do it.”

While most on the Right do not have recall beyond last week, I wonder if progressive media will remind the nation of the dangers inherent in Right-wing media and conservative politicians who public admire a dictator while disparaging a US president elected by the majority of voters (twice).

As with Civne Bundy, why does the US Right via its media always fail to align and promulgate on the right side of issues?
