“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”.
Looks like New York Times journalist Taylor Lorenz (and every other leftist self-labeled and quite privileged “victim” in the public eye) needs to repeat that phrase over and over until it hopefully sticks.
Drama has been unfolding between Fox News Conservative political pundit Tucker Carlson and New York Times Taylor Lorenz after an episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” aired this past week; Carlson openly criticized the “victim” mentality on full display during Oprah’s 2 hour tell-all special with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry post their UK refugee-style “flee” from the Royal Family.
Apparently, it’s hard out there for a Duchess and Prince.
Carlson has been accused of “harassment” by the New York Times in a public statement on their twitter account after Lorenz’s name was brought up during his show because of a public tweet she wrote, attempting to describe her own personal “victimhood” she has experienced while being a journalist and in the public eye.
“In a now familiar move, Tucker Carlson opened his show last night by attacking a journalist. It was a calculated and cruel tactic, which he regularly deploys to unleash a wave of harassment and vitriol at his intended target,” the New York Times PR tweeted in a statement. “Taylor Lorenz is a talented New York Times journalist doing timely and essential reporting. Journalists should be able to do their jobs without facing harassment.”
Apparently it’s okay for the New York Times, The Washington Post, and other left leaning outlets to “harass” Conservatives, but if one of their journalists’ public statements is discussed, that’s where the line is ultimately drawn.
“I hope people see this and recognize it for what it is, an attempt to mobilize an army of followers to memorize my name and instigate harassment”, said Lorenz on her Twitter account.
Tucker Carlson’s video elaborated on the irony of the “victim hood” trend so rampant in society today from leftist celebrities and other well-known, successful individuals.
In true Carlson form, he clapped back immediately after the New York Times statement and seemingly endless tweets from Lorenz reiterating her victim hood with another show segment addressing the overall irony of the hypocritical and petty situation.
Perhaps Lorenz should be grateful to Carlson for the immense coverage this story is receiving. Before Carlson’s amazingly spot on and hilarious-as-usual segment, I had never heard of “Taylor Lorenz”. Now suddenly, the journalists’ name is trending.
The New York Times should focus on bigger issues than perceived “victim hood” such as the Governor Cuomo nursing home scandal. Leave the petty drama to the reality shows and celebrity gossip.
