Andy Ngo
Born Andy Cuong Ngo
1986/1987 (age 35–36)
Employer The Post Millennial

A doxxer for Patriot Prayer,[1][2] and other far right groups. A writer/editor for fringe far-right publications.

Doxing

In 2019, Ngo labelled several journalists, including Shane Burley and Alexander Reid Ross, as "antifa ideologues".[3] According to Vox's Zack Beauchamp, Ngo doxed a political activist in 2019 by publishing her full name.[4] Ngo is known for publishing the mugshots of arrestees in Portland to his twitter account.[5]

Credibility

Ngo's credibility and objectivity as a journalist has been extensively criticized. Since 2019, he has been accused of using selectively edited videos and sharing misleading and inaccurate information to paint antifa activists as violent, and to underplay the violence of the far-right,[6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13] with Columbia Journalism Review describing Ngo as a "discredited provocateur".[14] Some of Ngo's contentions about antifa have been rated as "false" by fact-checker Politifact.[15] Several sources have declined to refer to Ngo as a "journalist".[6][16]

"These narratives have been intensified and supplemented by the work of right-wing adversarial media-makers like Elijah Schaffer and Andy Ngo, who collect videos of conflict at public protests and recirculate them to their online audiences. Both have even gone "undercover" by posing as protesters to capture footage for their channels, seeking to name and shame those marching. Their videos are edited, decontextualized, and shared among audiences hungry for a new fix of "riot porn," which instantly goes viral across the right-wing media ecosystem with the aid of influential pundits and politicians, including President Donald Trump."

Some of these writers, I'm told, do get paid.

"Last week, the local newspaper the Portland Mercury reported that a left-wing activist going undercover as a member of Patriot Prayer, a far-right group known for promoting and engaging in violent clashes with leftist activists, had given the publication an 18-minute video that included footage of Ngo with a group of Patriot Prayer members as the members discuss an upcoming brawl, including weaponry to be used in altercations with antifa. Ngo, who describes himself as a journalist, did not record the conversation, and does not appear to have his camera or notebook out. For part of the footage, he is seen on his phone."
