    Default TV Newswoman quits on air - "F**K IT -- I QUIT !!!!

    'F**k It I Quit': Alaskan Cannabis Club Owner Charlo Greene Leaves Reporting Job Live On Air

    http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014...n_5860710.html

    A reporter has quit her job live on air after outing herself as the president of a cannabis club – during a segment about the marijuana debate in Alaska.

    Charlo Greene was delivering a report on the Alaska Cannabis Club, which is the region’s only legal medical marijuana resource, on KTVA 11 News when she dropped her bombshell.

    Addressing the camera, she said: “Now everything you’ve heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska.

    “And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice, but fuck it, I quit.”

    As Greene walked off camera, stunned anchorwoman Alexis Fernandez was left facing the music and offered a hasty apology before cutting to adverts.

    Greene has since started an Indiegogo campaign for cannabis reform, stating: “I just quit my news reporting job on live TV to announce that I am redirecting all of my energy toward helping to end a failed drug policy that has ruined the lives of far too many Americans.”

    As to why she quit in such a dramatic fashion, Greene told the Alaska Dispatch News: “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 don’t know the state didn’t set up the framework to get their patients their medicine.

    “If I offended anyone, I apologize, but I’m not sorry for the choice that I made.”

    Alaska will vote on whether to decriminalize marijuana in November.

    I always love that "apology"..."I apologize, but I'm not sorry."
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Always give 2 weeks notice.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    The apology was probably for saying "fuck it". Why those words had to be used to quit is beyond me. A professional simply says, "I quit".
