MSNBC Enables Smear Campaign Against Journalist Taylor Lorenz

“Washington Post columnist Taylor Lorenz blasted MSNBC on Sunday over a segment on online harassment – which she says led to more harassment against her.

“If your segment or story on ‘online harassment’ leads to even worse online harassment for your subjects, you f***** up royally and should learn how to cover these things properly before ever talking about them again,” she tweeted on Sunday.

Lorenz continued, “I could teach an entire class on this stuff, but the simple fact is that very few people in power in newsrooms actually understand how the modern internet and online landscape works, and so they continually give ammo to bad actors.”

MTP Daily did a segment on Friday about a study conducted by New York University’s Center for Social Media and Politics that showed that online vitriol against Lorenz spiked 144 percent after journalist Glenn Greenwald criticized her.

Lorenz shared a threat she got online: “Hey, nice job on that story, you soulless effing [censored word].” She also shared online users sharing photos of her family members.”

  1. Every thing these buffoons accuse others of, they're guilty of themselves. PS. Cenk talking about "right wing monsters." Well you're a left wing monster.

  2. Taylor lorenz targets teenagers to expose for tweets they made when they were 14 to further her career. She is not a reporter, she isnt a journalist. She is a bully

  3. A dumb smear machine harassed and doxxes multiple people. Then cry’s on msnbc about being herself harassed, then says msnbc harassed her. Then goes on and doxxes libsoftiktok. Wtf

  4. can’t decide who is the BIGGER hypocrites here ..?? taylor Lauren or TYT ? that’s a tough one… TYT is nothing but far left propaganda and should come with a misinformation warning

  5. Awwwwwwe. People got sick of her doxxing and ruining their careers and lives….. Her day has finally come.

    And YOUR show is just disgusting. Did it ever occur to you to do some balanced reporting with both sides?

    Y'all better be saving up. You're going to be selling lemonade one of these old days, pretty soon
