WashPost’s Lorenz Doubles Down: We Did Not Doxx Libs of TikTok

Taylor Lorenz is a professional leftist victim and sleazebag Taylor Lorenz will be appearing on Sunday. The Washington Post appeared on CNN’s Reliable sourcesTo double-down on the lie she told that she had never donexxed the woman behind popular Twitter account Libs of TikTok. This is an untrue. 

Despite the fact Chaya Raichik of Libs of Tiktok being a better journalist than Lorenz, she trashed the account and said it was hateful. “is targeting LGBTQ folks.”According to her, “the entire goal of the account is to direct hate to trans and LGBTQ people. She said she doesn’t believe gay people who come out should be allowed to teach children.”

Brian Stelter, the host, reacted slightly to this by noting how “there are a lot of conservative parents or just a lot of parents in the United States that are worried about what their kids are learning”Lorenz disregarded these concerns and gave a lecture “you can have concerns about what your children are learning in school and not follow an LGBTQ hate account.”

 

 

Lorenz continued her crying and falsely claimed that “the whole goal [of Libs of TikTok] is to get trans and LGBTQ people sort of excluded from public life and drive these very harmful narratives around trans people.” 

She then defended doxxing Raichik’s name despite later claiming she didn’t reveal personal information: 

This woman’s claim that she isn’t newsworthy is absurd. For a living, I write about influencers and this woman is far more influential than many people. It’s vital. Because they do not want to be scrutinized, the right will use those arguments. 

Lorenz’s next denial was claiming that she “absolutely did not reveal any personal information”Raichik, and she thumbed at critics by claiming “reporting practices can seem foreign to people that are not familiar with journalism.” 

Then, she attacked conservative media, claiming that they lie and create narratives to achieve their goal. “sow doubt and to discredit journalism.”

Taylor Lorenz is the journalist who has discredit more journalism. It’s ironic that she is accusing anyone else of lying when that is all she did during her entire interview. It is a fact that she revealed or “doxxed” the woman behind Libs of TikTok. Her original story is here The Washington PostShe linked her address to her home before the latter was removed. 

To make matters worse, Stelter repeatedly lied during his panel discussion at the ironically named “Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy” conference when he claimed CNN has never spread disinformation. 

T-Mobile made it possible for Taylor Lorenz, Brian Stelter to lie repeatedly on his show about Taylor Lorenz not doxxing the women behind Libs of TikTok. The information they shared is linked.

BRIAN STELTER : There are many arguments that you can use to discredit your article. Another is that the identity of this person was not worthy of news. It doesn’t matter who the anonymous conservative women is, and you aren’t trying to make her feel bad by calling her that. How do you respond to these people? 

TAYLOR LOREZ: First, she targets LGBTQ people. She boasts about firing several teachers. It is clear that the whole purpose of this account is to promote hate against trans and LGBTQ people. She claimed that gay people should not be allowed to instruct children. She called the Trevor Project a groomer organisation. She’s not clear on what she means by that.

STELTER This is what it all boils down to —

LORENZ: Well, I mean, I think there’s a —you can have concern about what your children are learning in school and not follow an LGBTQ hate account that’s, the whole goal is to get trans and LGBTQ people sort of excluded from public life and drive these very harmful narratives around trans people. I think those two things are very, very distinct.

She spoke about mobilising her base for local school board elections and collected email addresses, of which 100% will be used for political purposes. This woman is both a politician and a prominent media figure. This woman’s story isn’t newsworthy, that is what I am referring to. For a living, I write about influencers and this woman is far more influential than many people. This is why it’s so important. Because they do not want to be scrutinized, the right will use those arguments. 

STELTER: You think it’s that—That’s a very blunt statement for a Washington Post reporter to make, they just don’t want scrutiny.

LORENZ, I don’t think that powerful people want to be under scrutiny. Because they want to operate in impunity, they will seek to discredit media. One example: This woman deleted thousands upon thousands of tweets after my article appeared. It was because she knew she would come under greater scrutiny. That’s something I believe is a positive thing. I think we should scrutinize anyone that has power in the country, anyone that’s influencing politics and legislation and public sentiment in the media, those figures are important to look at. 

STELTER: Thank you for being open to discussing this, and that you are willing to accept the scrutiny of someone who is covering it. So here’s the next one, the conservative supporters of this account said you were doxing the person, you’re doxing them. We need to know how do you define and distinguish between reporting and doxing. 

LORENZ : Of course. Doxxing is now a popular buzzword among right-wing media because it has lost so much of its meaning. Doxxing refers to the disclosure of highly sensitive, private information that is not public in an attempt to harass someone or endanger their life. The woman was not named. Although it is possible to be a little unsure about reporting, this report was completely in line with the rules and quite benign. But the truth is that right-wing media lies.

This is a common tactic. They want to challenge journalism. This is what they have in mind. It is important to understand that we must be ready for this and accept it as such. Brian, I try to educate the public about online harassment and outrage and teach news agencies how to deal with bad-faith attacks. It’s important that we, as media journalists, recognize when bad-faith attacks are being made.
