WaPo Forced to Make Corrections After 'Journalist' Lies in Report About YouTubers and Johnny Depp
Why any "news" outlet would keep someone like Taylor Lorenz on the payroll is a complete mystery. She isn't so much a reporter as she is a gossip columnist and activist. And one would think if the Washington Post wanted to at least appear as a legitimate source of news, they wouldn't want Lorenz out there making them look like idiots each time she throws something online. But they keep her around.
This time, Lorenz wasn't going after someone by taking their words completely out of context, and she wasn't attempting to get an anonymous woman on Twitter attacked by doxxing her. But she was wittingly lying as she reported about the success of two YouTubers. (h/t Fox News)
During the defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Turd--which, again, congrats Johnny--two YouTubers happen to cover the event at length: Alyte Mazeika (YouTube Channel "LegalBytes") and an anonymous user who goes by ThatUnbrellaGuy. The YouTubers allegedly banked on their coverage of the trial, with Mazeika earning $5,000 in one week and ThatUmbrellaGuy supposedly earning $80,000 last month.
Lorenz was reporting on these two channels and the success they've had by "pivoting" their content to "nonstop trial coverage and analysis."
Now, I don't know anything about ThatUmbrellaGuy--I might need to check him out--but I know Mazeika--or rather, I know of her and what she does--and I have no doubt she was talking about the trial long before Lorenz states that she "pivoted."
Regardless, the lie came when Lorenz stated she reached out to the two and stated, "Mazeika and ThatUmbrellaGuy did not respond to requests for comment." The fact is, Lorenz didn't reach out, and she was called on her bullsh*t right quick and in a hurry.
\u201cUm. This says I didn't respond to requests to comment? I know I've gotten a lot of emails over the past two months, but I've just double checked for your name, @TaylorLorenz, and I see no email from you.\n\nAlso, I didn't suddenly pivot. I started covering this before trial began.\u201d— Legal Bytes \ud83c\udf7d\ud83d\udc99 (@Legal Bytes \ud83c\udf7d\ud83d\udc99) 1654215060
\u201cLooks like ThatUmbrellaGuy made The Washington Post, because "dedicated pro-Depp content."\n\nNice how they speculate at what I made 1 month, btw, but omit YEARS of coverage. \n\nI'd like to see proof that Washington Post reached out to me, bc I got no email or Twitter DMs.\u201d— ThatUmbrellaGuy (@ThatUmbrellaGuy) 1654219898
So, the Washington Post did a number of things. They stealthily edited the piece. Lorenz then reached out to both people AFTER the piece was already published. Then the WaPo wrote a correction acknowledging some of their mistakes. Eventually, the left-wing rag landed on a lengthy note that only makes them look like idiots.
"The first published version of this story stated incorrectly that Internet influencers Alyte Mazeika and ThatUmbrellaGuy had been contacted for comment before publication. In fact, only Mazeika was asked, via Instagram. After the story was published, The Post continued to seek comment from Mazeika via social media and queried ThatUmbrellaGuy for the first time. During that process, The Post removed the incorrect statement from the story but did not note its removal, a violation of our corrections policy. The story has been updated to note that Mazeika declined to comment for this story and ThatUmbrellaGuy could not be reached for comment. A previous version of this story also inaccurately attributed a quote to Adam Waldman, a lawyer for Johnny Depp. The quote described how he contacted some Internet influencers and has been removed."
It would seem that was a bulk of the "story," and Lorenz just proved just how useless a "reporter" she actually is--although that has been perfectly clear to many for quite some time.
Good job, WaPo. Here's to hoping Lorenz sinks that ship faster than a direct hit with a torpedo because many of us are tired of the lies.
