Libs Of TikTok: WaPo Journalist Doesn’t Regret Doxxing Anonymous Conservative

The ‘Libs of TikTok’ account has taken social media by storm.

Anyone who spends time on any of the Big Tech platforms will have seen at least one post from the now-viral account, whose owner hoped to remain anonymous for obvious reasons.

Taylor Lorenz from the Washington Post changed all of that.

After crying about online harassment she receives from being a woman in the public eye, Lorenz took it upon herself to publish the personal information about the owner of ‘Libs of TikTok’. Citing “journalism 101”, the leftwing columnist doubled down on her decision to doxx the women who operates the viral account.

Lorenz told CNN’s Brian Stelter that the political right criticized her Tuesday article titled, “Meet the woman behind Libs of TikTok, secretly fueling the right’s outrage machine,” because they “don’t want scrutiny” for allegedly targeting LGBTQ people.

The article exposed the identity of the owner, which we will omit here, and initially linked her real estate page that included her home address. The columnist said the term “doxxing” has become a “buzzword” in conservative media and denied revealing any personal information.

Lorenz insinuated that the criticisms are “bad faith attacks” and must be recognized by journalists and the American people. Stelter suggested the conflict is “cherry-picking” and arose from “toxicity,” questioning how the media can break this cycle.

Meanwhile, directly after claiming she did not in fact doxx the owner of ‘Libs of TikTok,’ the WaPo journalist essentially backtracked and admitted to doing just that. She claimed the reason for publically identifying the owner of ‘Libs of TikTok’ was to rule out any possibility that he/she may be a “foreign actor.”

The owner of Libs of TikTok appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” for the first time on April 14 after Twitter suspended the account for “hateful conduct.” The owner said she chose to remain anonymous due to receiving death threats and hate mail.

Lorenz’s article came after she sobbed during an April 1 MSNBC interview over the “severe PTSD” she said she suffers from mean tweets directed at her.

The state of journalism had devolved into nothing but a means for the Democrat Party to publish its propaganda unscathed and without public scrutiny.

And the worst part is, it works…
