Reporter reveals connection to marijuana group, quits on air

You don’t often see a TV reporter quit on camera, let alone drop an ‘F bomb’ in the process.

Thanks to the eye of Jason DeRusha, we’re alerted to the “resignation” of reporter Charlo Greene of KTVA in Alaska. The ethically-challenged Greene reported on the Alaska Cannabis Club, and never revealed that she owns the marijuana-legalization group.

Language warning in the following video, which probably won’t be available online for very long.

“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,” she tells the Alaska Dispatch.

Give it a few years, kid.

    Maybe she can light her spliff using the embers of those burning bridges.

    First Bismarck, now Anchorage. What is it about the smaller, cold-weather television markets that attracts the F-Bombers?

    There’s probably less ethical stickiness (and more money to be made) legalizing and/or selling medical marijuana than repackaging PR on a nightly newscast.
