‘Journalist’ shilling for Terry McAuliffe gets well deserved smack-down
In a post that could be removed from Twitter any moment due to stupidity and embarrassment, Elizabeth Holmes, a reporter for NBC29, was caught shilling for the McAuliffe campaign.
At a campaign stop in Charlottesville, VA, four unknown individuals dressed in white shirts, khakis, and sunglasses were seen holding tiki torches while standing in front of Glenn Youngkin’s campaign bus. It was a sad attempt to tie Youngkin to the Unite The Right Rally that occurred in Charlottesville in 2017.
Without verifying their identity, motive, or the organization that sent them to the event, Holmes tweeted the following:
These men approached @GlennYoungkin’s bus as it pulled up saying what sounded like, “We’re all in for Glenn.” Here they are standing in front of the bus as his campaign event at Guadalajara started.@NBC29 pic.twitter.com/l681ejyBjc

What a disgrace to journalistic ethics! Holmes is currently receiving a well-deserved beating on Twitter.
Are you going to do some follow-up reporting about who they’re working for or are you content with just putting out misinformation in a desperate attempt to get McAuliffe elected?

My the desperate lows a campaign can sink to when polling shows K-12 parents prefer the other candidate by 17 pts. But @holmes_reports should be ashamed for playing along w/ this for the McAuliffe campaign (not surprising this is a product of UNC) #vagov https://t.co/z9uoxrE1SL https://t.co/tmboag6V1M

Elizabeth, do you realize how embarrassing this looks for you? Are you just “reporting”, or are you actively agitating Youngkin’s campaign with these laughable plants? https://t.co/WAMU9DitOX

So….zero attempts to, I don’t know, do some actual investigative reporting like maybe finding out who they are and what their actual backgrounds are. You are why people hate and distrust the media.

While Glenn Youngkin has ZERO ties to white supremacy, let’s not forget, it’s a DEMOCRAT who was exposed for dressing up as either in black face or a KKK member. (Ralph Northam just couldn’t remember which racist character he portrayed.)
The left will stop at nothing to keep Glenn Youngkin from being the next governor of Virginia. Holmes’ actions are heinous and dishonest. But what else do you expect from someone who lists her pronouns in her Twitter bio?
