Among the most apparent reasons of Wahl is her disappointment over the network's (she works for), "whitewashing" of the actions of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Here are parts of Liz Wahl's statements:
Last night RT made headlines when one of our anchors went on the record and said Russian intervention in Crimea is wrong and indeed, as a reporter on this network, I face many ethical and moral challenge
On another note, Wahl's "grandparents were Hungarian refugees who fled Soviet oppression" and that her partner works as a physician at a military detachment.

Wahl concluded:
That is why, personally, I cannot be part of a network funded by the Russian government that whitewashes the actions of Putin. I’m proud to be an American and believe in disseminating the truth and that is why, after this newscast, I’m resigning.
