FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Washington Post Reporter’s Harassment of Private Citizen

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to Washington Post reporter Taylor Lorenz’ decision to “expose” the identity of a private citizen for operating a Twitter account that mocks the views held by many in left-wing corporate media, Noah Wall, FreedomWorks Executive Vice President, commented:

“Reporter Taylor Lorenz and The Washington Post’s decision to doxx the private citizen behind the Twitter account Libs of Tik Tok is shameful. It is an abuse of power by a major American newspaper of record that makes clear to us all that, for them, political activism and journalism are one in the same.”

“If anything, the newsworthy part of this story is why an account that highlights the opinions of the woke is so troublesome to media elites. Let it be known that if The Post chooses to go to these lengths over something so trivial as Tik Tok posts, they can absolutely do the same thing to you.”
