WaPo Reporter Under Fire for Doxxing Private Citizen

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1861: Robert E. Lee named commander of Virginia Confederate forces (US Civil War).

A reporter for The Washington Post published the address of the anonymous individual behind the popular conservative Twitter account Libs Of TikTok.

In an article that’s been described as a “hit piece,” journalist Taylor Lorenz accused Libs of TikTok of “spreading anti-LGBTQ+ sentiment.”

Lorenz is facing intense criticism for doxxing the woman behind the account, publicly revealing her name, occupation, and even including a link showing her home address. WaPo later removed the link after outcry from critics.

The reporter is also facing scrutiny for her tactics, including showing up unannounced at the home of one of Libs of TikTok’s relatives.

Many came forward to support Libs of TikTok amid the WaPo report, including Donald Trump Jr.

“The question [Libs of TikTok] often raises — & the Left wants to ignore — is do parents have a right to know what their children are being taught in their public school, or not? No [Taylor Lorenz’s] hit piece can change the fact that America’s parents are with us, not the groomers,” Trump wrote.

The outlet issued a statement in support of Lorenz.

“Taylor Lorenz is an accomplished and diligent journalist whose reporting methods comport entirely with The Washington Post’s professional standards,” WaPo senior managing editor Cameron Barr said.

    Where is the arrest?

  2. Rob Eastley says:

    If this behaviour is typical of the WaPo’s ‘professional standards’, I can only assume that they HAVE no standards …. ! !

  3. Coolmeadow Kid says:

    So now, WaPo is the head of the thought security division of the radical left? With what this ‘reporter’ has done, and the backing of her employer, should Libs of Tiktok publish the personal addresses of this reporter and the administrators of WaPo? Bet they wouldn’t like that.

  4. Jerry Martin says:

    In 2013, Jeff Bezos purchased the paper for US$250 million. The newspaper is now owned by Nash Holdings LLC, a company controlled by Jeff Bezos. So one has to assume the reporting methods comport entirely with The Washington Post’s professional standards according to,” WaPo senior managing editor Cameron Barr, are approved of and by Jeff Bezos, making him no better than the low life, Taylor Lorenz, that works for him.

    Doxing is a favorite tactic of the left. The right is in a war and needs to start returning the favor. This reporter would be a good start.
