"But when someone makes a big public show of a personal decision, it is nothing more than a self-promotional stunt."
..."It was kind of spontaneous. I'd decided on that day that for me, in my mind, a red line had been drawn," she said. "Covering this crisis in Crimea, I've seen censorship there and really RT being used as a propaganda tool to promote the Putin world view. "I think when I started working there I thought it was an opportunity ... I did not, however, think that his (Putin's) foreign policy agenda would be pushed and used in a newscast. "When they offered me the job they certainly didn't sell it in a way that I would be Putin's mouthpiece. But as this crisis escalates, I see that this is what it is." Ms Wahl's grandparents fled to the US as refugees during the 1956 Hungarian Revolution to escape the Soviet Union."
Ion Mihai Pacepa is fond of saying: "When You Appease Tyrants, They Just Hate You Even More" . Some people, it seems, are too corrupt or too stupid to realize it
