Looks like Barack Obama has lost more jobs, this time in Russia …
FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE FOR OBAMA ... So much for those who claimed that the VIDEO of the female Russian news anchor flipping Obama the bird was a fake. Russian News Anchor Tatiana Limanova who gave Barack Obama the middle finger has been fired. Hasn’t all the media in the World got the memo that you make fun of our dear leader Obama and face the risk of your actions? Obviously Russian media does not understand, the Chicago way.
From the UK Telegraph comes the following regarding the firing of the news anchor.
Online footage of the incident involving news anchor Tatyana Limanova went viral in both Russia and the West causing REN TV, her employer, huge embarrassment.
To broadcast bosses’ horror, Ms Limanova was caught mechanically raising her left arm and showing the camera her raised middle finger after referencing US President Barack Obama.
REN TV, a privately owned channel controlled by associates of Vladimir Putin, the prime minister, said on Thursday it had decided to take her off air calling her actions “unacceptable” and “unprofessional”.
Who really thinks that she would have been fired if it was been referencing GWB? If “unacceptable” and “unprofessional” were qualifications for maintaining your job in the media, wouldn’t that mean that all at MSMNC would be out of a job and 90% of the MSM in the United States? Heck, if “unacceptable” and “unprofessional” were job qualifiers, Barack Obama and Joe Biden would be pink slipped as well.
