For most reporters, being named a White House correspondent is a career highlight. Emerald Robinson, who worked that position for Newsmax, though, has had no problem risking her opportunity.
Last week, Robinson was suspended from Twitter for spreading misinformation on Twitter. She also reprimanded by her employer and taken off the air. As soon as she got back on the social media site, though, she was immediately spreading the same claims. She has now been banned permanently.
The initial tweet which earned Robinson her suspension read, “Dear Christians: the vaccines contain a bioluminescent marker called LUCIFERASE so that you can be tracked. Read the last book of the New Testament to see how this ends.”
Upon her reinstatement, the reporter wrote, “I’m back… on Twitter at least. Join me at Substack before I’m banned again.” Linked to her post was an article about her Luciferase conspiracy theory.
I guess when you come back and tweet the exactly same thing that got you suspended, it’s doesn’t go over too well. https://t.co/DgzQXMrTvR

That message was the one that got her banned permanently. At this moment, it is unknown how Newsmax will deal with the correspondent. Upon her initial claims, the network noted, “Newsmax is currently reviewing the posts and during that period Ms. Robinson will not be on air but continue with duties for the network.”
