Network sources claim she was flipping off unseen studio crew member.
Sources at the network -- which is available to 120 million viewers across Russia -- told the Telegraph that the anchor thought she was off camera and just doing a voiceover, aiming the insult at studio technicians who had teased her earlier.
If this is true, they should have never fired her. If she knew she was being videotaped, even if it was aimed at news staff, then she deserves the boot

I wont argue that perhaps this woman flipped a bird but on the strength of the pic in the link she could have been flipping off almost anyone if that in fact was even what she was doing.the pic could be taken totally out of context.
Savoir Faire do you have anything a bit more conclusive in the video dept.?

I know, I know. Guess its because its a natural reaction when one hears the name Obama to raise the middle finger.

Jambo, the video has been posted in at least two threads, one I put up in the "What kind of president is Obama" or is Obama the worst president or whatever it was titled.

And someone else made an entire thread on this video. She talks, you don't understand much, a few words and then you hear her say American president Barack Obama and she flips the bird.

I was just thinking, I would hate to try to count how many times he may have been saluted in that manner right here in this country.
