During a news broadcast on Russian TV, anchor Tatiana Limanova spoke about Russian President Dmitry Medvedev’s appearance at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit. Shortly after, the anchor mentioned that Medvedev will soon take an APEC leadership role previous held by U.S. President Barack Obama. The only odd thing to note, however, is that Limanova says Obama’s name while simultaneously showing her middle finger.
REN-TV, Limanova’s network, is reportedly one of Russia’s largest privately-owned news channels, claiming an audience of 113 million

I got a good laugh out of it but it seems Ms. Tatianova thought she was off camera and doing voiceover and the gesture was addressed to somebody or somebodies in the stage crew.

In support of that, the reporter notes that she only takes three glances at the camera, mostly staring down at the script, which she wouldn't be doing if she were on the air.

Moreover, she's been fired and has denied the finger was aimed at the US president.

(It's still great fun to watch, though)
