As Twitchy told you, Elle Magazine is getting spanked hard for their pathetic Get Out the Vote stunt masquerading as celebrity gossip:

Naturally, CNN’s Chris Cillizza is a huge fan:
This is brilliant https://t.co/piqIa5j1dZ

Because of course Chris Cillizza thinks it’s brilliant. Of course he does.
Chris Cillizza thinks posting fake news to trick the stupid @ELLEmagazine followers into clicking on a link to voter registration is "brilliant"
Very on brand for Chris Cillizza I must say. pic.twitter.com/CYRt6iPu1A

It doesn’t get much more Chris Cillizza than that.
Brilliant? WTF is wrong with you?

NARRATOR: It wasn't brilliant. https://t.co/AD7oK79mbx

Isn't it wonderful to spread false rumors about someone's marriage for clicks and crass political benefit? How clever!

A CNN employee believes posting fake news is brilliant. Typical.

Using fake stories to get people to vote. This is basic CNN strategy.

The commentary here is that readers need to be lured to vote with Kardashian gossip clickbait.

Not brilliant. Actually this is insulting to all women…why use click bait for voter registration? Do you assume readers of @ELLEmagazine aren’t smart enough to understand the importance of registering to vote?

Chris Cillizza isn’t smart enough to understand that what Elle did is not only pathetic and shameful but quite arguably unethical.
Classic Cillizza. This is trash and makes Elle look bad. How do you have a job man? You have failed up spectacularly. Honestly one of the dumbest public figures out there.

I can’t believe this guy got a job in journalism. At least he’s a great example of you can be anything you want to be no matter how bad you are at it.

Wow, bad look. Great job, @CNN
