Washington Post Journalist Taylor Lorenz’s thin-skinned approach to her job taught the nation a valuable lesson about what journalism is NOT. Taylor chose to reveal the true identity of the person behind the Libs of Tik Tok account by doxing the Jewish mother who lives in Brooklyn, New York. If you are unfamiliar with the Libs of Tik Tok, it is a viral video TikTok account that posts the actual videos that Taylor’s readers post of themselves. These video posts are unedited, unfiltered, and in the leftists’ own words just for a broader audience to get a glimpse of and see.
BlazeTV host Steve Deace of “The Steve Deace Show,” plays a game that focuses on Taylor’s poor judgment called “What is the benign innocent explanation for (…) ?”
“What is the benign, innocent explanation for Taylor Lorenz at the Washington Post [doxing] the Jewish mother who runs the Libs of Tik Tok page,” Steve asked?
This was not a normal doxing — an earlier version of Taylor’s article mentioned the Brooklyn woman’s home address. Is there a benign and innocent explanation to do this to someone?
