“Taylor Lorenz is an accomplished and diligent journalist whose reporting methods comport entirely with the Washington Post’s professional standards,” Cameron Barr, Senior Managing Editor at the Washington Post said. “[Libs of Tik Tok], in her management of the Libs of TikTok Twitter account and in media interviews, has had significant impact on public discourse and her identity had become public knowledge on social media. We did not publish or link to any details about her personal life.”
The Washington Post‘s assertion that they did not “publish or link to any details about her personal life” appears to be false. According to Washington Examiner reporter Jerry Dunleavy, an early version of the article linked to the Libs of TikTok account owner’s real estate license. The link contained the account owner’s real estate license number, full name and possible address.

It’s an absolute shame what the New York Times and the Washington Post have become. (You can lump CNN and the LA Times in there, as well.) The NYT’s dismissal of the New York Post’s story about Hunter Biden’s laptop last fall is by far the most egregious example, but the formerly respected heavyweights of the MSM are giving us new examples on an almost weekly basis of just how far they’ve fallen. This. Is. Not. Journalism.
