Alaska TV reporter drops the F-Bomb while quitting on Sunday’s 10 p.m. newscast

“Fuck it; I quit.”
On Sunday night’s 10 p.m. newscast, KTVA (Anchorage) reporter Charlo Greene did a piece on the Alaska Cannabis Club without disclosing – until the end of the report that she’s behind the operation.greene1 She told viewers: “[I] 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.”

Greene [right] says she quit that way “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 news director Bert Rudman says on the station’s Facebook page: “We sincerely apologize for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter during her live presentation on the air tonight. The employee has been terminated.” Commenters pointed out that Greene quit before she was “terminated.”
