Skip to comments.Russian newsreader fired after Obama middle finger insult
Posted on 11/24/2011 9:44:56 AM PST by bigbob
A top Russian female newsreader who appeared to defiantly show US President Barack Obama her middle finger during a live newscast has been fired.

Evidently we have not only exported capitalism and porn to Russia, but also our idiotic political correctness.
She should have been promoted.
I agree with the promotion!
Hire her FOX News! Replace that androgynous Shemp Smith or that smarmy Whorealdo Riviera.
Maybe Fox can give her Huckabee’s slot. She’d be more entertaining than watching Goober playing his bass.
I heard she thought she was off the air and was flipping the bird to a technician who was giving her a hard time.
Obama is tall so she honored him with the tall finger salute. The other 4 were off duty at the time. As VP would say, No big FD.
I keep thinking back to when the MSM assured us the whole world would love us again if only we had a President Barack Hussein Obama! LOL
Has anyone noticed how bad Shep is looking?
That’s disappointing, and discouraging.
Even Russians are Obama flunkies.
The cited article says that. Frankly, I think that's a plausible explanation.
But, you have to admit that it's terrible publicity. If a newsreader had done that while reading a news story about Bush or Reagan, how would you have reacted?
Click pic or link for your viewing pleasure.
Well Hellary can play peacemaker and send her the infamous red reset button in slang Russian language.
That was certainly a plausible cover story, but evidently the PC russians didn’t want to go that route. Probably got a phone call...
I like her replacing Shep, provided it’s in her contract that she has to give the one-finger salute every time Obama’s name is mentioned.
Yes I have. For the briefest moment as I click the channel when his image comes on, it looks like he has HIV.
now that is clever!
There is no 1st Amendment in Russia!
Ahhh so what...Pravda on the Potomac flips us all the bird everyday. And it ain’t the skinned Butterball kind either.
There is only Political Correctness in America.
An American and Russian are talking about the differences between their two countries.
The American says, “In my country, I can say I don’t like the American President.”
The Russian responds, “In my country, I can do the same thing, I can also say I don’t like the American President.”
