A massive billboard slamming the Washington Post went up Tuesday in Times Square, New York City after the outlet ran a piece revealing the identity of the person behind the Libs of Tik Tok Twitter account.
“Hey WaPo, democracy dies in darkness,” the billboard reads. “That’s why we’re shining a light on you. Taylor Lorenz doxxed @libsoftiktok. @Timcast.”
The Washington Post and Taylor Lorenz Doxxed @libsoftiktok
They included a link to private work details and an address listed as Libs’ private home
They lied about it so I got an ad in Times Square calling them out

The billboard was apparently paid for by podcaster Tim Pool, who also thanked Daily Wire co-founder and co-chief executive officer Jeremy Boreing for an “assist.” Pool and Boreing discussed the possibility of purchasing the billboard Sunday on Twitter, with Boreing stating that he was “good for half.”
Boreing continued to state that he currently had a billboard in Times Square advertising his new shaving company, Jeremy’s Razors. He noted that the “first thing we should do is see if we can swap it over or get extra time.”
The billboard comes as a response to an article from the Washington Post’s tech columnist Taylor Lorenz posting an article doxxing the Twitter account Libs of Tik Tok. The article revealed the identity of account owner Chaya Raichik as well as initially including a link to her real estate page, which included Raichik’s home address.

Lorenz responded to the billboard, stating that Pool and Boreing were attempting to “discredit” her reporting.

“I am shocked by the outpouring of support and it means the world to me,” Libs of Tik Tok told the Daily Caller. “Taylor succeeded in unifying the entire right and it’s incredible to watch.”
