This situation with Abby Martin and Liz Wahl appears to me to be a perfect example of what Glenn Greenwald recently exposed as the NSA program to control and disrupt society via media and social network manipulation.
We see here that Abby and Liz have both fallen into that trap whether wittingly or unwittingly, and have become the grist for the NSA mill. All the NSA had to do was activate their vast network of social media drones and the whole issue is covered in veil of black smoke.
And we notice how much raging coverage this gets, while the FACTS ON THE GROUND get almost NO coverage in the MSM.
Thanks Abby and Liz for being Benedict Arnolds and giving aid to the psychopathic enemy.
During a live broadcast on Wednesday, RT America presenter Liz Wahl announced she was stepping down, citing her disagreements with the network’s editorial policy. RT issued a statement following her resignation.
Ms. Wahl’s resignation comes on the heels of her colleague Abby Martin’s recent comments in which she voiced her disagreement with certain policies of the Russian government and asserted her editorial independence. The difference is, Ms. Martin spoke in the context of her own talk show, to the viewers who have been tuning in for years to hear her opinions on current events – the opinions that most media did not care about until two days ago. For years, Ms. Martin has been speaking out against US military intervention, only to be ignored by the mainstream news outlets – but with that one comment, branded as an act of defiance, she became an overnight sensation. It is a tempting example to follow.
When a journalist disagrees with the editorial position of his or her organization, the usual course of action is to address those grievances with the editor, and, if they cannot be resolved, to quit like a professional. But when someone makes a big public show of a personal decision, it is nothing more than a self-promotional stunt.
We wish Liz the best of luck on her chosen path.
