An American anchor working for state-owned television station Russia Today quit on air on Wednesday. Wahl said she faces several 'ethical and moral challenges' as a reporter for the Russian-funded TV network. 'I'm proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth, and that is why, after this newscast, I'm resigning, " she said. Liz Wahl, who was a Washington, D.C. correspondent for the state-owned television station, quit live on-air Wednesday because she does not agree with the network's backing of Russian President Vladimir Putin's military intervention in Ukraine's Crimea region.The self-described "Filipina-Hungarian-American" said she faces several "ethical and moral challenges" as a reporter for the network.
Wahl described herself as the daughter of a veteran who grew up in the United States. Her partner, she said, is a military-base physician "where he sees every day first hand accounts of the ultimate prices people pay for this country."
"And that is why personally, I cannot be part of a network funded by the Russian government that whitewashes the actions of Putin, " she said as she went off-script on live TV. "I'm proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth, and that is why, after this newscast, I'm resigning."
During her minute-long statement, Wahl also mentioned the "international headlines" that Abby Martin, a host of the show, made Tuesday night when she said "Russian intervention in the Crimea is wrong."
Wahl tweeted about "my girl" Abby Martin for going "spectacularly off-message in Ukraine broadcast."
She also wrote about her grandparents who fled Hungary during revolution of 1956.
RT released a statement later Wednesday, writing that Wahl made "a big show of a personal decision" as part of "a self-promotional stunt."
"We wish Liz the best of luck on her chosen path, " the network wrote.
Wahl described the TV stations inner workings during a segment with Anderson Cooper on CNN later Wednesday.
"RT is not about the truth, " Wahl said. "It's about promoting a Putinist agenda. It's also about bashing America."

SAD- WXII anchor reports co-anchor DWI arrest- TOLLY CARR
What happens when the people who bring us the news, become the news? Kimberly Van Scoy, morning show anchor at WXII channel 12 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, must report that her co-anchor Tolly Carr was arrested the day before (March 11, 2007) for driving while impaired and killing pedestrian Casey Ryan Bokhoven, 26.
Although obviously upset, Kimberly maintains a professional persona, but note she refers to Tolly by his first name at the end of the piece. Tolly's decision to drive after a few drinks led to killing a man, injuring his passenger and no doubt derailing his promising career in broadcasting. Very sad. From the WXII 5 am broadcast, Monday, March 12, 2007.

News Presenter flashes on live TV after forgetting she's sitting at a glass desk
A news presenter suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction live on TV, when she forgot she was sitting at a glass desk. Journalist Costanza Calabrese was presenting the late night bulletin on Italian TV channel TG 5 when she gave viewers a bit of an eyeful. s the 38-year-old starts talking, the camera is zoomed in on her face. But it soon begins to pan out, to show her full desk, covered in papers as she reads the bulletin.Unfortunately, what Costanza doesn't seem to realise, is that her desk — being made from glass — shows absolutely everything. Which meant that the reporter, who was sitting with her legs apart, flashed her knickers to the entire watching audience. And to make matters worse, the clip has now been uploaded to YouTube, where it has been seen by over 40, 000 people.
