Russia Today (RT) anchor Abby Martin spoke into the camera during her broadcast and said that she needed to express something “from her heart.”
“What Russia did is wrong,” Martin said. “I will not sit here and apologize or defend military aggression.”
Martin condemned Russia for what she called a “terrible situation” and said she would “keep telling the truth as I see it” if that’s what it takes to “prevent a full-blown cold war.”
“Just because I work here, for RT, doesn’t mean I don’t have editorial independence,” she said. “I can’t stress enough how strongly I am against any state intervention in a sovereign nation’s affairs.”
Glenn Greenwald, who reported on Martin’s segment Monday morning, pointed out the rarity of this type of journalistic independence, even in the United States.
