'I'm For The Truth': RT Reporter Resigns Over Coverage Of Malaysia Airlines Disaster

by Wochit 1:00 mins

Sara Firth, an RT correspondent, resigned Tuesday morning over the Kremlin-funded network's coverage of the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 disaster in the Ukraine. Ukraine’s Security Service Chief Valentyn Nalyvaichenko was quick to point to finger at Russia, saying he had “unconditional evidence” that Russia was involved in downing the plane. The latest resignation came after Firth got into a discussion on Twitter with another RT correspondent, London-based Polly Boiko, about whether the two ultimately work for Putin. Firth is the second RT journalist to resign this year. In March, shortly following Russia's military action in Ukraine, American RT Anchor Liz Wahl dramatically resigned on air, stating she could not be "part of a network that whitewashes the actions of Russian President Vladimir Putin."
