Tucker Carlson Features Times Square Billboard By Tim Pool and Daily Wire's Jeremy Boreing

'of course, as predicted, Taylor Lorenz says she's the victim here,' Carlson said

On Wednesday, Fox News’s Tucker Carlson reported on the billboard placed in Times Square by YouTuber Tim Pool and Daily Wire co-CEO Jeremy Boreing during his show. 

As Timcast reported previously, the billboard was placed in Times Square in New York City to highlight the hypocrisy of Washington Post reporter Taylor Lorenz and her treatment of the @libsoftiktok owner. The billboard said, “Hey WaPo, Democracy Dies in darkness. That’s why we’re shining a light on you.” It continued, “The Washington Post and Taylor Lorenz Doxxed @libsoftiktok.”

Carlson shared a video of the ad scrolling on a screen in Times Square on his show. He went on to say, “So Tim Pool of YouTube fame, with the help of The Daily Wire’s Jeremy Boreing, just put up a billboard in Times Square highlighting what The Washington Post tried to do to the founder of @libsoftiktok. Now, of course, as predicted, Taylor Lorenz says she’s the victim here.”

Carlson made sure to note the apparent duplicity of Lorenz. “So she exposes the @libsoftiktok owner to violence,” he said, “But when you say her name, you’re a terrorist.”

After the billboard went up, Lorenz took to Twitter to express her thoughts about the placement, saying, “This billboard is undeniably so idiotic it’s hilarious, but don’t forget these campaigns have a much darker and more vile side. I’m grateful to be at a newsroom that recognizes bad faith, politically motivated attacks and has a strong security team.”

Lorenz’s concerns about safety or supposed “politically motivated” actions behind the billboard carry a hint of irony. Just last week, in an article meant to expose the person behind the popular Twitter account Libs of TikTok, Lorenz linked to a critical piece of information that disclosed the private home address of the person running the account. 

In her article on the Twitter account, Lorenz wrote, “The account has emerged as a powerful force on the Internet, shaping right-wing media, impacting anti-LGBTQ+ legislation and influencing millions by posting viral videos aimed at inciting outrage among the right.”

Lorenz, who claims to suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after her personal information was published online, released not only the Libs of TikTok creator’s name but specific personal details. Her article linked to the creator’s employer, employer’s address, and professional credentials. She also gave details about her travel history. Her actions contradict her own call for privacy and security after speaking out about her own experience. 

The Washington Post has defended Lorenz’s actions. Senior Editor Cameron Barr released a statement claiming the outlet “did not publish or link to any details about her personal life.”
