Quite a few British journalists and crew from Russia Today quit when they were told to just repeat lies with no sources on Ukraine after Crimea was invaded.
Those Brits surely found work in America, given how prized that British accent is in American MSM these days
And also, if you were a resident of the Crimea in 2014, I'm sure you would have voted to join Russia as well, just like 96.77% of the Crimea residents actually did
The referendum was after masked unmarked Russian special forces took over key locations of Crimea and annexed it. You'd be dumb to vote against such a ruthless occupying force.
Are you familiar with Wikipedia?
"The results of the survey by the Broadcasting Board of Governors, conducted 21–29 April 2014, showed that 83% of Crimeans felt that the results of the March 16 referendum on Crimea’s status likely reflected the views of most people there. Whereas, this view is shared only by 30% in the rest of Ukraine.
According to the Gallup's survey performed on 21–27 April, 82.8% of Crimean people consider the referendum results reflecting most Crimeans’ views, and 73.9% of Crimeans say Crimea’s becoming part of Russia will make life better for themselves and their families, just 5.5% disagree.
According to survey carried out by Pew Research Center in April 2014, majority of Crimean residents say the referendum was free and fair (91%) and that the government in Kyiv ought to recognize the results of the vote (88%).
A poll of the Crimean public was taken by the Ukrainian branch of Germany's biggest market research organization, GfK, on 16–22 January 2015. According to its results: "Eighty-two percent of those polled said they fully supported Crimea's inclusion in Russia, and another 11 percent expressed partial support. Only 4 percent spoke out against it. ... Fifty-one percent reported their well-being had improved in the past year."
