Tucker Carlson recently revealed on his show that the New York Times was planning to share where his family lives.
This is significant because if the Times did this, it would put Tucker’s family at significant risk. He was forced to move his family in recent years, because a left wing mob showed up at his house and terrorized his wife, then sent threatening letters.
By exposing the New York Times and their plan, Tucker sabotaged them and the whole thing backfired on them.
Here’s what Tucker said, via Townhall:
“Last week The New York Times began working on a story about where my family and I live. As a matter of journalism there is no conceivable justification for a story like that. The paper is not alleging we’ve done anything wrong and we haven’t. We pay our taxes. We like our neighbors. We’ve never had a dispute with anyone,” he said.
“So why is The New York Times doing a story on the location of my family’s house? Well, you know why. To hurt us, to injure my wife and kids so that I will shut up and stop disagree with them. They believe in force. We’ve learned that.”

If you watched the video to the end, you’ll notice that Tucker named the reporter who was working on the story.
The New York Times denied they were planning to do this and no one believes them. So here’s what happened next:
Again from Townhall:
…an army of conservative Twitter accounts started publicly posting the address and personal information of the reporter Carlson identified as the story’s writer. Many encouraged people to harass the reporter.
In a statement to The Washington Post, a spokesperson for the Times denied Carlson’s claims.
“While we do not confirm what may or may not publish in future editions, the Times has not and does not plan to expose any residence of Tucker Carlson’s, which Carlson was aware of before tonight’s broadcast,” the spokesperson said. The spokesperson declined to comment further when asked about the reporter’s doxing.
You know what they say about payback…

Maybe the New York Times will think twice next time.
