Newsmax ousts anti-vax conspiracy theorist Emerald Robinson for tweeting that the COVID vaccine contains ‘bioluminescent demonic tracker’. Emerald Robinson, an anti-vax conspiracy theorist, has been ousted from Newsmax.
Emerald Robinson, a Newsmax White House journalist, has been off the air since earlier this month after tweeting that the Covid-19 vaccinations had a bioluminescent demonic tracker. And it now appears that she may never return.
Robinson’s post wasn’t her first time spreading conspiracy ideas. Her Twitter account was suspended as a result of the message. Newsmax made two statements rebuking her anti-vaccine remarks and praising the network as a “strong proponent of Covid 19 vaccinations are overarchingly safe and effective,” before confirming that she will be taken off the air soon after.
Robinson was permanently banned from Twitter on Nov. 9 for some apparent reason, doubling back on her Satanic tracker conspiracy theories. According to Justin Baragona and Diana Falzone of the Daily Beast, Newsmax is leaning toward following Twitter’s lead.
Robinson “remains off-air as Newsmax analyzes matters connected to her posts made outside of the channel on her own social media,” according to a Newsmax representative, and the network has “not determined when she will return to the air.”
According to one current employee, “she’s just going to be gone” is the general consensus among network personnel. The newsroom, however, has received “nothing definitive.” According to another source, Robinson is almost certainly done with Newsmax.
Sources say Robinson, who only joined Newsmax last year after leaving OAN, may be an independent contractor rather than a full-time employee, which isn’t an uncommon arrangement for Newsmax on-air personalities, since at least one other famous correspondent and a weekday anchor are contractors.
Newsmax is in talks with former Fox News chief DC correspondent James Rosen to serve in the same job for their network.
