An RT Reporter Resigns In Protest Of Network's Downed Jet Coverage


Reporter Sara Firth told The Press Gazette, a British publication covering journalism news, that RT's coverage of the crash of MH17 was "the straw that broke the camel's back for me."

Firth declared that she was "for the truth" in a tweet announcing her resignation. She had also written a series of tweets before the announcement that outlined her problems with RT's coverage:
