A journalist thought it was pertinent to point out Congressman Dan Crenshaw’s Twitter account was following a $1500/hr escort. His observation and attempt to discredit the Republican was pounced on by other Twitter users.
Zachary Petrizzo, a politics reporter for Daily Dot and Mediaite, pointed out the Congressman’s Twitter faux pas with screenshots and all.

Things like this happen all the time. Accounts can be made to seem legitimate, only to be changed later. Twitter allows easy revamps of accounts; someone could be a Texas conservative named Bill one day and be converted into “Olive May” the sex worker from New York in about 10 minutes. Then, there’s the good ol’ inadvertent follow; I once followed a satanic high priest by mistake and didn’t know until much later when a Baphomet appeared unironically in my timeline.
Crenshaw unwisely insinuated he was hacked.
Grow up people, no one on my staff, nor I, purposefully followed this account. Thanks for flagging. Passwords changed.

But Twitter did as Twitter often does and started combing through Petrizzo’s Twitter account. That’s when things got interesting.

To Petrizzo’s credit, he hasn’t made his account private. Yet. But as OAN’s Jack Posobiec pointed out, the plot twist on this particular episode of “How Not To Be A Journalist” is better than the original post.
COVID-19 lockdowns are taking down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the resurgence of lockdowns that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $17,300 to stay afloat through March when we hope the economy will be more open, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. In November, 2020, we hit 1.2 million visitors.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
Join fellow patriots as we keep Americans informed and advance the cause of conservatism.
