DeSantis Spokeswoman Further Dismantles ‘Sociopathic’ WaPo Doxxing

'It is bullying, and I do not trust that a newspaper that elevates this sociopathic behavior will cover me fairly... '

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw mocked the mainstream media publication the Washington Post and its reporter Taylor Lorenz for their stilted coverage and toxic doxxing of the Libs of TikTok story and its creator Chaya Raichik, the Daily Caller reported.

Lorenz wrote a hit piece earlier this week on the’Libs of TikTok account, framing it as a bizarre, fringe right-wing group of weirdos that cannot be trusted, but a group which nonetheless has influence over DeSantis and Florida Republicans.

In a scathing tweet, Pushaw posted a screenshot of the WaPo’s Paul Farhi’s attempt to secure an interview with her about the matter.

“The Washington Post has decided to write a ‘feature story’ about me,” she wrote. “Do you guys think it will be a fair and balanced feature story, or a smear piece?”

In his email, Farhi pleasantly pretends to have legitimate interest in conducting an honest interview with Pushaw.

But in a scathing response, she suggested that after the Posts’ treatment of Raichik, she has little interest in any dealings.

“In fact, your paper did provide a link to Raichik’s real estate license, which included her address,” Pushaw wrote.

“This put Raichik in danger, and it is appalling that a columnist who has been so outspoken about the harms of online harassment and doxxing would do the same thing to a woman that she disagrees with on politics.”

She also reprimanded Farhi and his newspaper for targeting individual private citizens in an attempt to ruin their lives.

“Wielding the power of a national newspaper to intimidate a private citizen for the thoughtcrime of reposting TikTok videos, that liberal creators posted publicly, is not journalism,” Pushaw wrote.

“It is bullying, and I do not trust that a newspaper that elevates this sociopathic behavior will cover me fairly.”
