Project Veritas on Tuesday evening released undercover video of a New York Times reporter admitting the media’s coverage of January 6 is “over-the-top.”
New York Times National Security Correspondent, Matthew Rosenberg, contradicted his own January 6 reporting and also admitted the FBI was involved.
“There were a ton of FBI informants amongst the people who attacked the Capitol,” Rosenberg told the undercover PV journalist.
“It was like, me and two other colleagues who were there [January 6] outside and we were just having fun!” he said.
“I know I’m supposed to be traumatized, but like, all these colleagues who were in the [Capitol] building and are like ‘Oh my God it was so scary!’ I’m like, ‘f*ck off!’”
Rosenberg: “They were making too big a deal. They were making this an organized thing that it wasn’t.”
Via Project Veritas:
Project Veritas published a bombshell video on Tuesday showing Pulitzer Prize winning New York Times correspondent, Matthew Rosenberg, speaking about the events of January 6, 2021, in a way that contradicts his own reporting.
Rosenberg, who covers national security matters for the Times says on the undercover video that “there were a ton of FBI informants among the people who attacked the Capitol.”
This revelation is a break from Rosenberg’s reporting on the matter where he characterized such a notion of FBI informants in the crowd as a “reimagining of Jan. 6.”
This was not the only time Rosenberg’s commentary to Project Veritas’ undercover reporter directly contradicted his own published words. Despite telling a Veritas journalist that January 6 was “no big deal,” his article says that downplaying the events of that day was “the next big lie.”
Soundbites of Rosenberg published Tuesday show him saying, “It’s not a big deal as they [media] are making it, because they were making too big a deal. They were making this an organized thing that it wasn’t.”
