Newsmax White House correspondent doesn’t have her contract renewed


Newsmax White House correspondent Emerald Robinson will not have her contract renewed when it ends in January after she was banned permanently from Twitter for sharing misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines. 

The Washington Post first reported that Robinson would be out at the beginning of next year.  

‘Emerald is still with Newsmax, however her contract ends in January and we will not be renewing it. We appreciate the work she has done on-air for the network,’ Newsmax told the newspaper.

Robinson has made controversial posts in the past, expressing that the vaccine was a gateway to being forced to obey the government and there is 'abundant clinical evidence' that the 'vaccines don't work.' Twitter tagged her post as 'misleading'

Robinson did not respond to a request for comment from DailyMail.com. 

The Daily Beast reported Tuesday that Newsmax hired ex-Fox News reporter James Rosen as its new chief White House correspondent.  

On November 1, Robinson combined several conspiracy theories and tweeted: ‘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,’ she added. 

Luciferase – which is named after the Latin words ‘light’ and ‘carry,’ not Lucifer, the devil – is a compound used in medicine, but isn’t present in the approved COVID-19 vaccines. 

The marker was used in COVID-19 research back in the summer of 2020. 

The tweet received widespread attention and Robinson deleted it. 

Twitter banned Robinson for a week. 

On November 11, Twitter permanently suspended Emerald Robinson from Twitter, just days after Newsmax benched her for sharing COVID-19 conspiracy theories

 Newsmax put out a statement in support of the COVID-19 vaccination effort. 

 ‘Newsmax strongly believes and has reported that the COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. We do not believe the vaccines contain any toxic materials or tracking markers, and such false claims have never been reported on Newsmax,’ the statement read. 

Additionally,  Elliot Jacobson, Newsmax’s executive vice president and chief content officer, said the company is a ‘strong proponent that COVID-19 vaccines are overarchingly safe and effective.’

‘We have seen no evidence to suggest LUCIFERASE or LUCIFERIN are present in any vaccines or that they are used as any sort bioluminescent marker,’ he said.

Prior to her ‘Luciferase’ post, Robinson had aired vaccine skepticism on Twitter.  

‘The pandemic is to force you to get the vaccine. The vaccine is to force you to get the vaccine passport. The vaccine passport is to force you into the social credit system. The social credit system is to force you into obeying the government,’ she tweeted in September. 

In last October she wrote, ‘There’s abundant clinical evidence that the new vaccines don’t work as advertised. That’s the biggest story around the world that’s being suppressed.’ 

On November 4, Newsmax said it was benching the correspondent, but she would remain with the news organization.

‘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 statement reads, shared by Washington Post reporter Erik Wemple. 

Then on November 11, Twitter announced she would stay permanently banned from the social media site. 

Robinson had joined Newsmax from One America News Network, another right-wing outlet.    

Prior to that she was an actress and appeared on The Young and the Restless, Days of Our Lives, and All My Children.
