Taylor Lorenz discusses 'Libs of TikTok' and her reporting practices
Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter
Apr 21, 2022

Taylor Lorenz, the Washington Post journalist who profiled the "Libs of TikTok" Twitter account and revealed the creator's identity, answers questions about her reporting. She says "Libs of TikTok," which ridicules progressive educators, has become a "feeding ground" for right-wing media outlets: "The idea that this woman is not newsworthy is nonsense." She says the conservative commentators denouncing her want to "sow doubt and discredit journalism. That is their agenda."
