Russian anchor fired over middle finger

UPI News Service, 11/24/2011 

A Russian TV station said it has dismissed a news anchor for flipping the bird while reading an item about U.S. President Barack Obama.

REN TV said it dismissed anchor Tatiana Limanova after she made the obscene gesture while saying the president's name during a Nov. 14 story about the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation conference, RIA Novosti reported Thursday.

However, officials with the TV station said Limanova's gesture was not aimed at Obama but rather at "editorial staff" colleagues who were attempting to distract her from off-camera.

"This does not diminish her guilt and cannot be considered an excuse. The REN TV management views this action as the gravest violation of on-air discipline and a demonstration of unprofessionalism," the station said in a statement.
