Alaska CBS reporter says 'f--k it, I quit' on live TV, after disclosing pot club ownership

On Sunday night's 10 p.m. live broadcast of KTVA 11 News, a reporter for CBS affiliate in Anchorage quit in dramatic fashion. After reporting a story about an upcoming ballot measure on decriminalizing marijuana in Alaska, Charlo Greene announced that she is owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club and "will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska."

Pushing for marijuana legalization while reporting on the ballot measure — which she has been doing since April — is an obvious conflict of interest, but Greene burned all her bridges just in case: "As for this job, well, not that I have a choice, but f--k it, I quit." And it's true, she didn't have a choice.
