Well duh! You want a despicable conformist like most media outlets look for to dispense their message without question or scrutiny. That's the sort of crap that is fully undermining journalism. It's no longer about the true story, but the story that the media moguls want propagated. I have no way to know whether the following is accurate or not, but the former reporter's behavior could very well be indicative of such an environment where she wanted to provide her viewers with factual information that just so happened to go against her bosses anti-marijuana, Reefer Madness influenced message that led to her bosses threatening her to toe the line (as you have described as being an attractive quality in an employee).
In your line of work, it's probably no where near as important to conduct your business using factual information as it is in journalism. Hence, such behavior probably shouldn't be expected in your line of work. Journalism, however, provides an important resource for our society. Undermining that with solely corporate bottom lines in mind is a travesty, and for that reason, I applaud Green's behavior. She expressed herself in the subsequent video to indicate as much.
And no, I have no sympathy for her coworkers. They are paid to work AND adapt to live television. The lead anchor in pink who looked like she was a deer in headlights exposed herself in this regard. Some can handle it and some can't. Welcome to live, local news. HAHAHAHAHA!

You don't have to be a despicable conformist to choose a more mature way to make a point.
