News reporter quits her job on live television.

KTVA-TV reporter Charlo Greene stunned her audience and her coworkers Sunday night by revealing she was the owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, an organization that connects medical marijuana cardholders with people in need of kush.
“As for this job,” she concluded, “not that I have a choice, but… **** it. I quit.”

She said she would be devoting all her energy to “fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins by legalizing marijuana here in Alaska.” The report cuts away to a stunned anchor, who pauses, apologizes twice, and begins her next segment.

Meanwhile, in a Reddit thread about the news clip, someone purporting to be a former employee of Greene’s spoke out against her before deleting his posts.

Before Greene’s segment aired, followers of the Alaska Cannabis Club on Twitter and Facebook were urged to tune in. But Greene says her station had no idea what she was going to do.

In a statement to KTVA, Greene explained her decision to quit on air:

“Because I wanted to draw attention to this issue. And the issue is medical marijuana. Ballot Measure 2 is a way to make medical marijuana real ... most patients didn’t know the state didn’t set up the framework to get patients their medicine. … If I offended anyone, I apologize, but I’m not sorry for the choice that I made.”

KTVA said Greene had been “terminated.”

Wow. I understand you want to make a huge impact on your ''foundation'' but at least have some class and you know go on CNN debates to talk about it. You dont just insult a news station,cursing and quitting your job on national television.That doesnt send a good message for an audience that you're trying to persue. In some cases yes, she was brave enough to state why she was leaving and where her new leadership would take place at, but I'm not influenced to support her cause. I believe she could have handled it differently. It's NOT cute. She couldve did this in a commercial as she did here for a ''segment'' or something O_O like LMAO



Any comments ?

Thoughts?

First of all, I thought it was hilarious, I watched it two or three times the other day on facebook haha.

But I agree, the way she did it was really unprofessional (obviously that was her intentions xD), but I also would not support her cause.

Edit: The way she talks in the second video lmao, forever sounding like a news caster. I dunno I never was a fan of supporting marijuana users...idc if someone does it but keep it away from me lol.

I think marijuana should be legalized and I think that was hilarious she just quit on camera. Sure it's unprofessional but it's nice to see some actual realness on a news channel rather than skewed subjective garbage. Also, the fact that the word "fck" should be censored on TV yet gore shouldn't still blows my mind.

Yeah, I'll leave it at that.
