Embattled Washington Post journalist Taylor Lorenz became the subject of criticism after she and her editors published an article exposing previously private information about the creator of Libs of TikTok in a practice many call doxxing.
After days of nonstop criticism, Lorenz appeared on CNN with Brian Stelter to defend her work.
“It’s rare to see an account gain so much prominence so quickly and be shaping these narratives,” said Lorenz, after denying doxxing but admitting the account is effective in its goal of amplifying what left wing content creators on TikTok say, “especially against trans people.”
“I wanted to make the case why this account matters, and I think it’s incredibly important,” Lorenz justified. “As someone who covers the influencer industry, to know who is exerting influence in this way.”
“I mean for all we knew this could have been a foreign actor, right?” Lorenz declared, “Or someone–we just didn’t know.” Taylor Lorenz says that one of the reasons she revealed @libsoftiktok ‘s identity is because “for all we knew, this could have been a foreign actor.” pic.twitter.com/ktRnYDxbly — Greg Price (@greg_price11) April 24, 2022 Then, Lorenz complained that the Libs of TikTok creator is becoming a popular conservative voice and appeared on high level news outlets.
“This woman is basically on an entire right wing media tour,” groaned Lorenz. “She gave interviews to the New York Post, Tucker, all of that.”
“I wanted to,” Lorenz started, “I thought it was quite important and in the public interest to find out who was running it.”
When Lorenz’s article was first published, many conservatives noted that Lorenz was literally crying on camera only weeks earlier because of mean comments written about her online. Ironically, Lorenz’s not only provoked this sort of response for the Libs of TikTok creator, but also for a random Instagram user who […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
