Emerald Robinson, the White House correspondent for Newsmax was removed from the air while the outlet looks into the tweet she made about an unsubstantiated conspiracy theory about vaccines.
“Newsmax is currently reviewing the posts and during that period Ms. Robinson will not be on air but continue with duties for the network,” the outlet stated in an announcement.
“Dear Christians: the vaccines include a bioluminescent marker known as LUCIFERASE in order to be monitored. Check out the last chapter from the New Testament to see how the story ends,” Robinson wrote in an earlier blog post. Twitter took down the tweet, citing it as an infraction of safety guidelines.
The Covid-19 vaccines don’t contain”bioluminescent marker “bioluminescent marker” or any tracking devices (linked to Satan or any other way).
The company has sought to remove itself from this tweet by stating that earlier in the week, via a tweet from its chief content officer Elliot J. Jacobson that “Newsmax is a firm believer of Covid-19 as being secure and efficient, but simultaneously raising concerns that mandates violate the privacy and liberty of individuals. There is no evidence that suggests LUCIFERASE and LUCIFERIN are in any vaccine or use them in any way as a bioluminescent markers.” The news outlet further stated that “false assertions have not been made public by Newsmax.”
Robinson has been the subject of attention on the scene for her interaction in conversation with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki in the briefings on a daily basis.
