Tucker Carlson Trounces the WaPo Over 'Libs of Tik Tok' Doxxing as Only He Can, Reveals Disturbing Info

Many readers will recall that Fox News host Tucker Carlson was on the receiving end of some especially juvenile Mean Girl-style tweeting and “reporting” from supposed “journalists” and media hall monitors back in March 2021 when he had the nerve to call out “technology reporter” Taylor Lorenz, who back then worked for the New York Times, over her trying to have it both ways on the issue of online harassment of social media users, which apparently is Lorenz’s job.

In response to Carlson laying out inconvenient facts, the Usual Suspects including the NYT jumped into action at the time by accusing him of “misogyny” and then trotted out ridiculous “words are violence” arguments to defend themselves when they, too, were subjected to criticism.

Fast forward a little over a year later, and with Lorenz – who is now at the Washington Post – facing backlash again over her doxxing of the “Libs of Tik Tok” Twitter account just a few weeks after Lorenz herself did a tear-filled MSNBC interview where she decried the online harassment she says she’s been subjected to, Carlson understandably had thoughts he wanted to express about Lorenz, her employer, and the “former Twitter employee” (per Carlson) who the WaPo says helped “expose” the person behind LoTT.

During the lengthy segment, Carlson first highlighted several TikTok clips the LoTT account had shared on their Twitter page in the past as examples of radical left-wing messaging they were trying to warn people about, especially as it related to “woke” educators in public school classrooms who were openly sharing their indoctrination tactics on the popular video platform. Carlson also noted how wildly popular the account, which is run by a private citizen, had become. Because of that, he correctly pointed out that Twitter itself at times had punished LoTT by either suspending or shutting them down before the WaPo took action to try and punish/cancel them for the apparent crime of letting bat-crap crazy activists on the left speak for themselves.

Carlson also took aim at Lorenz herself, stating that she was not a real reporter but was instead just someone who was hired to do Jeff Bezos’ bidding by targeting conservatives who are effective at getting the message out and making a difference, which is what LoTT did by sharing the video clips, some of which were seen by members of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration, and which reportedly were in part the inspiration behind the state’s new Parental Rights in Education law that the left and their media allies have been raging about over the last couple of months.

But Carlson’s monologue took a disturbing turn when he shined a brighter light on Travis Brown, the software developer who the Washington Post described as someone “who is working on a project with support from Prototype Fund, an organization that backs open-source projects.” Also according to the WaPo, Brown “unearthed [LoTT’s] Twitter history and posted a thread detailing information about its profile changes.”

What is the Prototype Fund, you may ask? It’s funded by the German government’s “Federal Ministry of Education,” as Carlson revealed in his commentary, which prompted further questions from him about why the German government was funding the suppression of a private American citizen and whether or not Lorenz had registered as a foreign agent since she willingly used information gleaned by someone who was the recipient of that funding.

Watch all three clips below, and be shocked (but not really) all over again at how yes, this is actually happening in America today:

Carlson also interviewed the person behind the LoTT account, which you can watch here.

All of this said, fortunately, LoTT is going to come out of this smelling like a rose courtesy of the gracious folks at The Babylon Bee, whose CEO tweeted Tuesday that he’s “worked out a deal with [LoTT] that will turn her heroic, high-risk work into a career.” Now that’s what #winning looks like.
