RT anchor Liz Wahl's decision to quit live on air yesterday, citing its "whitewashing" of the actions of President Vladimir Putin's government, is an opportunity to revisit the Russian government-owned channel's true purpose: A layered propaganda and disinformation operation.

Titus, I think that was Abby Martin.

Liz Wahl says her father served and she is patriotic.

Update: Liz Wahl, an anchor for Kremlin-funded RT America, resigned live on air on Wednesday, BuzzFeed’s Rosie Gray reported.

Wahl said she resigned in protest of the network’s coverage of Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine.

. . .

Abby Martin, an American anchor at the Kremlin-funded news station RT, condemned Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s “occupation of Crimea” in a broadcast Monday night, declaring that “what Russia did is wrong.”

. . .

The New York Times notes that for regular viewers of Martin’s show, her declaration of “editorial independence” did not come as such a surprise. Martin is an outspoken anti-war activist, and as Mediaite highlights, her show has explored the theory that staged “false flag” attacks are “at the heart of every major U.S. war of aggression in history.”

The Times also notes Martin has been involved in the 9/11 Truth movement that alleges the September 11th attacks were an inside job. In a video online that has since been pulled, Martin marches in a 9/11 Truth demonstration in Santa Monica, California on October 11, 2008.

“I’ve researched it for three years and every single thing that I uncover solidifies my belief that it was an inside job and that our government was complicit in what happened,” Martin says in the video. “You have to trust your own mind to know what you’re seeing is true.”

Martin distanced herself from the video on Tuesday, telling Buzzfeed that she didn’t know if 9/11 was an ‘inside job.’ “But I do stand by my opinion that we were lied to about what happened that day,” Martin said. “That video is six years old, so it’s unfortunate that it is becoming a viral discrediting factor in a completely unrelated story.”

Wow there was two? My bad. RT should reconsider their hiring strategy in the USA.

That's what happens when you pick bimbos as newsreaders.

The same could be said of just about every workplace in the world.

The whole thing was a stage managed neo-con operation.

The usual cabal of pricks.
