Russia Today Journalist Sensationally Resigns Over Putin “Lies”

Sara Firth, a British journalist at Russia Today, has confirmed to MediaGuido that she today resigned in protest at the channel’s coverage of the Ukraine plane crash.

RT is funded by the Kremlin…

UPDATE: Press Gazette has these quotes from Firth:

“Yesterday when the story broke you get the kick in your stomach when you’re going to get the facts and it’s this huge story. And I walked into the newsroom and they were running an eye-witness account of God-knows who the person was blaming the Ukrainian government, and it is such a volatile situation. I said [in a previous interview], if I was asked to burn the facts and not tell the truth I’d be a goner, and so I’m gone… it’s the level of disrespect for the facts that really bugs me. And so I made my decision yesterday when we started covering the story and this morning woke up and I just knew that I can’t go back in any more. The thing is once I made the decision, you have to be honest with yourself and it’s so difficult…. Once you start telling the truth it’s brutal.”
