The New York Times spends their days attacking anybody they disagree with.
But when somebody does the same to them, they lose their minds.
And Tucker Carlson just flipped the script on the New York Times and demolished them with one segment.
Among all the horrible reporters at The New York Times, social media reporter Taylor Lorenz shines as perhaps the most despicable.
Lorenz has made a name for herself in creeping her way into private messages of underage children to blow up family drama into major news stories.
She did this most infamously in the case of former Trump Senior Counselor Kellyanne Conway, who is married to Never-Trump Lincoln Project co-founder George Conway.
Thinking that there must be issues in the marriage, she reached out to their 15-year old daughter Claudia, without her parent’s consent.
And this isn’t the first time she has done this, and she has noted in her reporting the oddness of a thirty-something woman reaching out to children without their parent’s consent.
“The biggest, most challenging thing about my job is getting teenagers to talk to me on the phone and getting them to let you into their house and follow them around,” Lorenz said.
“To have a photographer come is overwhelming; a lot of kids don’t want anything to do with it, especially if their parents aren’t fully aware of what they are doing.”
Tucker Carlson ran a segment on her, alongside Federalist co-founder Sean Davis, who referred to her as “creepy.”
“She stalks teenagers on the internet,” Davis said. “And this isn’t my opinion, she says as much. And she even talks about how if she were a dude doing what she were doing, people would think it’s kind of creepy.”
After being called out for her creepy behavior, Lorenz posted a tweet framing herself as a victim of harassment that “destroyed [her] life.”
For international women’s day please consider supporting women enduring online harassment. It’s not an exaggeration to say that the harassment and smear campaign I’ve had to endure over the past year has destroyed my life. No one should have to go through this.

Naturally, Carlson poked fun at such an infantile response, stating that she is spending too much time on the internet if her life is being “destroyed” over her so-called “reporting.”
In response, the NYT blasted Carlson in a statement.
“Tucker Carlson opened his show last night by attacking a journalist,” the statement read, going on to describe the segment as “a calculated and cruel tactic, which he regularly deploys to unleash a wave of harassment and vitriol at his intended target.”

Following this, Carlson began his show blasting their statement, pointing out that generally news outlets have a rule not to insert themselves into a story outside of very rare cases.
“But today, The New York Times made an exception to that rule and jumped ferociously to the defense of its social media reporter Taylor Lorenz,” Carlson said.
“Now, we told you about Taylor Lorenz last night in a segment about how the most privileged in our society now consider themselves oppressed. And Taylor Lorenz is certainly a shining example of that principle. A New York report from Greenwich telling you what a victim she is.”
“We were embarrassed for Taylor Lorenz. She spends her entire life on the internet, so, of course, after a while, you become a deeply unhappy narcissist. That’s what the internet does to people,” Carlson continued.
“And we assumed her bosses would be embarrassed for her too. Little did we know, that they are all exactly like she is.”
Carlson also mocked the idea of his report being harassment, pointing to the fact that he himself was faced with a mob of left-wing radicals at his home, which the mainstream media defended.
The New York Times’ entire purpose is to harass people they disagree with, after all.
Do you think Tucker Carlson was “harassing” Taylor Lorenz?
