A Washington Post reporter who was featured on a recent MSNBC segment on internet harassment said that the leftwing network really “f*cked up” in telling her story!
Wash Po reporter Taylor Lorenz ripped into MSNBC, saying the network “f–ked up royally” after a segment about online harassment that she participated in resulted in “even worse online harassment.”
Lorenz, who left The New York Times for the Post this year, was interviewed for an MSNBC segment on journalist harassment, where she detailed threats she has received online. However, Lorenz appeared less-than-thrilled with the feedback she received after claiming she suffers from “severe PTSD” after being harassed on social media.
“If your segment or story on ‘online harassment’ leads to even worse online harassment for your subjects, you f–ked up royally and should learn how to cover these things properly before ever talking about them again,” Lorenz tweeted.
“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,” Lorenz added.
MSNBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox or other news outlets that have reported on Lorenz’s no-holds-barred admonishment of MSNBC.
During the segment, an emotional Lorenz shared threats she received online and said she had contemplated suicide.
“You feel like any little piece of information that gets out on you will be used by the worst people on the internet to destroy your life, and it’s so isolating,” she said. “It’s horrifying… It’s overwhelming.”
Lorenz herself is no stranger to controversy.
The former Times reporter made headlines earlier this year when she trashed the Times on her way out the door, saying the newspaper didn’t allow her to grow her personal brand. She raised eyebrows in the past, including a 2021 moment when she tweeted a false charge that business tech entrepreneur Marc Andreessen used what she called the “r-slur” on the audio-driven social media app Clubhouse. Lorenz was swiftly criticized for the inaccurate tweet, which she eventually deleted.

If you are being harassed on social media, or having a negative experience, turn it off and get a real life!! At the end of the day who gives a shit??????
I HEAR YOU KIM, AND HERE WE ARE! IF PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO DISH IT OUT; THEN OTHERS WILL RESPOND. I KNOW I HAVE SAID A FEW THINGS THAT IF I WASN’T ANGRY I WOULDN’T HAVE. BUT, IN THESE TIMES, IT IS HARD NOT TO BE ANGERED WHEN YOU HEAR THINGS THAT AREN’T TRUE. I AM SURE IT MUST HAVE BEEN BAD FOR HER TO RESPOND THAT WAY. I AM SORRY IT HAPPENED TO HER
IF YOU’RE GOING TO MAKE A COMMENT OR ANYTHING AGAINST THE LEFT; DO REALISE THE MSNBC AND ALL OF THEM WILL SAY SOMETHING. BETTER TO NOT GIVE AN INTERVIEW IN A FAKE NEWS PLACE.
