In a resignation letter obtained by National Report, Wagner claims she has been spreading “lies on behalf of Obama” and using her position with MSNBC to “falsely promote a brutal dictator.”
Wagner goes on to say, “I have spent my entire professional career working toward a position based on false pretenses. I have worked hard to obtain a position with a major news network and expected to be reporting on serious issues. Instead, I am handed Pro-Obama scripts and asked to be a mouthpiece for the administration.”
A CNN report this afternoon suggested Wagner had recently been empowered by the bravery of Russia Today reporter Liz Wahl, who quit her Kremlin-funded network during a live broadcast. A second RT reporter, Sara Firth, left her position with the network today as well, giving Wagner the confidence to make the decision to walk away from her show.
