Fox News Insider provides a recap and background:

A Russia Today anchor announced her resignation on the air, saying she could no longer work for a network that “whitewashes the actions” of Vladimir Putin. Liz Wahl, who worked out of the Russian broadcaster’s Washington, D.C. bureau, said her grandparents fled Hungary to the U.S. to escape Soviet persecution in the 1950s.

“I’m proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth. And that is why after this news cast I’m resigning,” Wahl said in her final appearance on the Russian government-funded station.

Wahl spoke to The Daily Beast following her resignation, saying to become successful at the network journalists learn to “kind of suppress any concerns that you have and play the game.”

But not anymore. At least not for Wahl. Good for her.

You go, girl.
