What Do You Think of Liz Wahl’s On-Air Resignation?

Liz Wahl is looking for a job today. The RT America reporter — and former CNNI contributor and once a Fox News intern — quit at the end of a broadcast on the Russian government-backed, Washington D.C.-based news channel Wednesday. The granddaughter of Hungarian refugees, and daughter of a member of the U.S. military, Wahl told Anderson Cooper she couldn’t continue on the channel because, “It’s about promoting a Putinist agenda and I can tell you firsthand, it’s also about bashing America.”

The network called Wahl’s actions “nothing more than a self-promotional stunt.” What do you think?
