CHAYA RAICHIK (LIBS OF TIKTOK): My first investigative report actually last week, which is what got me suspended now from Twitter for seven days. But other than that and by the way, I hope to do more of those in the future. But yeah, it's reposting from these people publicly available stuff, videos, screenshots, pictures, all publicly available that they readily put out. And I just take that. I bring it to Twitter and I – I just present it to my audience and say exactly what this is what they're saying. You know, I don't – I just present it and they – they can't – the libs cannot stand it. They can't handle it.


JACK POSOBIEC (HOST): And so you're reporting on stuff that's publicly available. So you're doing the exact same thing – but there's an entire industry on the left that does this to the right. Media Matters, Right Wing Watch, K-FILE over at CNN, a lot of the BuzzFeed, you know, people that are there, all they do is report on stuff that the right says or people say. And in many cases, they'll even report people or doxx people like yourself, by the way, who is a victim of doxing by the Washington Post and Taylor Lorenz.

CHAYA RAICHIK: Yeah, exactly. It's a very common practice to take publicly available media information and use it and repurpose it. I mean, that's what everybody does. You watch any – watch Tucker one night, I mean, he might play a clip that CNN aired, you know, to point out how, you know, how insane they are. But I mean, it's a normal thing that you do in media. And I'm doing that as well.

POSOBIEC: So you've done that. Then this ridiculous situation happened. It was a fake bomb threat. Because if I remember correctly, the police, the Boston Police Department goes and reports, they check out the thing. They investigate it. Obviously talking about bombs in Boston in the wake of the Boston bombing. It's only been, I think nine years since that – yes, nine years since that happened – but it's still very fresh. So obviously something that's going to get a huge response in any city would get a huge response. But they go out, they find out the thing was fake. And yet somehow, somehow, the entire media has decided to blame you.

RAICHIK: Correct. They – not just that, but they were calling – there was a lot of people on Twitter, big accounts calling for my arrest, calling for me to be completely deplatformed, calling me a terrorist. I mean, really, really insane stuff. All for simply posting a publicly available video from Boston Children's Hospital's YouTube channel.

POSOBIEC: So you posted the video. These people have called for your arrest. The reports were coming out. So, that brings us up to the audio that we just heard. What are you doing and who are these people that you're calling?

RAICHIK: So I've seen these reports. I can't defend myself because I'm currently on a seven-day Twitter suspension, so I wasn't able to defend myself from these accusations. A lot of people on the right did defend me, and I sincerely appreciate that. And I want to clear my name. I mean, I had nothing to do with this. I one thousand percent condemn all acts or threats of violence. I have never, ever encouraged violence. And so, Seth Dillon from Babylon Bee, he was very kind and and offered a $20,000 cash reward for information leading to the caller of the bomb threat. And we're hoping to track down the person who did this.

Besides for the fact that we believe it is likely a – not one of my followers. We believe that it is probably a left-wing troll trying to get me suspended for good because the whole point of the videos is to show that we care about children. I mean, we're very concerned about these procedures and surgeries that are being done to kids. And we care about kids.

So the idea that one of my followers would go and call in a bomb threat is ludicrous. I mean – it just – it doesn't make any sense. I don't believe that to be true. So we don't believe it was one of my followers. It is probably a left-wing person trying to get me suspended. Regardless of who it is – If we're right or wrong about that – the person should be found. I mean, if you place a bomb threat to a hospital, I mean, that's a horrible thing to do. They should be found. They should be prosecuted. And we hope they are.

So, you know, Seth and I thought, you know, let's help out Boston PD or whoever it is and offer a cash reward. Maybe someone will come forward and with information and we can catch the criminal who did this – not just that, but now another CEO of a media company actually came in and matched Seth's offer, so it's now a $40,000 cash reward for information leading to the caller.

So I – so what happened was we see all of the – I'm seeing all of these reports from NBC, ABC, Axios, The Daily Beast. I mean, every single one of them. And they're all basically blaming me for this bomb threat. And I was like, you know, I thought that they would want to know about this cash reward because, you know, obviously, they are – they obviously condemn this bomb threat. But I mean, it's a terrible thing. They all wrote in their articles about how, you know, this is a really awful thing to happen to a children's hospital. So I was like, you know, for sure they would want to know about this cash reward, right? I mean, who wouldn't? Right? Like, maybe they could help us spread the word about it and we could catch this person. I mean, that's what I thought, at least. Because who wouldn't want to be – who wouldn't want to help catch a person who called in a bomb threat to a children's hospital, right?

POSOBIEC: Of course. Yes. Obviously.
