Because nothing is more helpful during a natural disaster than a progressive journo spreading lies and fake information to push her anti-Trump narrative.
Just wow, Joy.
No FEMA director, no NOAA director and no head of DHS. Plus an administration filled with cronies and climate change deniers. Going great! https://t.co/jWL0GU3TAm

All she had to do was a basic search on Google to know she was REALLY REALLY REALLY wrong.
Unless she didn’t care about being wrong.
- FEMA Director: Brock Long
- NOAA Head: Benjamin Friedman
- DHS Head: Elaine Duke
Do Brock Long (FEMA director), Benjamin Friedman (NOAA head), and Elaine Duke (DHS head) know that they don't exist?

Oh she did sorta make a correction, but not really.

Joy would rather terrify Texans than admit she was just hating on Trump.
You. Are. Clueless.
How can you possibly be such a half-witted neo-socialist shrill? This is NOT the time or place for your stupidity.

People are already afraid and panicked, but hey, let’s spread some more misinformation because it might hurt Trump.
Why are you lying?

It’s all they know.
She's a Democrat. It's what they do.

And all of this adds up to the biggest issue we face in social media, when the incorrect information is shared more than the corrected information.
Incorrect tweet saying there's no FEMA director: 5,800 RTs and counting.
Correction tweet that she was wrong: 174 RTs.

Anything to push the narrative, even if it means putting more people in danger.
Every single time.
