TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT …
By FITSNews || A reporter who supports the legalization of marijuana (as we do) quit her job at an Alaska television this week … announcing the move during a live broadcast.
“I will be dedicating all of my energy for fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska,” reporter Charlo Greene of KTVA-TV said during a live broadcast. “And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but… fuck it, I quit.”
Greene’s station immediately sent out a statement apologizing for “the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter during her live presentation on the air tonight.”
“The employee has been terminated,” the statement added.
Um, no … she quit .
During her stint at KTVA, Greene did several stories on marijuana legalization – referencing the work of the Alaska Cannabis Club, an organization she now admits to having founded herself.

Too funny …
And while we’re sure all the media purists out there are wringing their hands at Greene’s deception, let’s be honest: The mainstream media deceives all the time. At least this woman was compromising her integrity on behalf of individual liberty – not against it.
That may not make her actions right … but we’ll take that sort of agenda-driven reporting over the pro-establishment pablum most local television stations spoon-feed viewers.
Alaskans will vote this November on whether to legalize marijuana for recreational use. If the ballot measure is approved, Alaska would join Colorado and Washington – which legalized marijuana for recreational use in 2012.
Obviously legalization is just one of the battles to be fought on this front, as it’s also critical for states that permit recreational pot use to refrain from taxing it to death.
