Whoa. Did Russia Today's Sara Firth just admit she is paid to peddle pro-Putin propaganda? Update: 'I resigned'

That question, posed to Russia Today correspondent Polly Boiko, kicked off a fascinating exchange this morning on Twitter.

Boiko responded thusly:

Then Sara Firth (or perhaps someone pretending to be her?) jumped in with this surprising admission:

Whoa. Firth (like Boiko) is a correspondent for Russia Today. Here are screencaps of her on the air:

Readers thanked Firth for her honesty:

Firth responded with this:

Was her account hacked, perhaps?

Most readers are taking the tweets at face value:

The @Sara__Firth account, set up more than five years ago, is unverified. A hoax seems unlikely, but the possibility cannot be ruled out completely. Stay tuned as this story unfolds.

Firth reportedly told BuzzFeed, “I couldn’t do it any more, we’re lying every single day. Every single day we’re lying and finding sexier ways to do it.

BuzzFeed reports that Firth’s resignation was “in protest” of Russia Today’s handling of Thursday’s Malaysia Airlines crash.

“It was the total disregard to the facts. We threw up eyewitness accounts from someone on the ground openly accusing the Ukrainian government [of involvement in the disaster] and a correspondent in the studio pulled up a plane crash before that the Ukrainian government had been involved in and said it was ‘worth mentioning’.”

“It’s not worth mentioning. It’s RT all over, it’s flirting with that border of overtly lying. You’re not telling a lie, you’re just bringing something up. I didn’t want to watch a story like that where people have lost loved ones and we’re handling it like that.”
