A new Project Veritas hidden camera video shows Pulitzer Prize winning New York Times correspondent Matthew Rosenberg admitting that “[t]here were a ton of FBI informants amongst the people who attacked the Capitol,” contravening much of the left’s response to January 6th thus far.
Rosenberg – the National Security Correspondent for the Grey Lady – told the undercover reporter about the FBI informants despite his own reporting to the NY Times-reading public stating the contrary.
On the one year anniversary of the incident, Rosenberg wrote:
The reimagining of Jan. 6 has not so much evolved as it has splintered into rival, but often complementary, false narratives with a common goal — to shift blame away from Mr. Trump, his supporters and a Republican Party maneuvering to win back control of government. The riot was a “false flag” operation by antifa, the loose left-wing collective; the F.B.I. planted agents to stir up the crowd; the protesters were mere “tourists” wrongfully accused by a Democratic-led Justice Department and vilified by a biased mainstream media; police officers recounting their injuries and trauma were “crisis actors.’”
Now he has been caught on camera (below) admitting at least some of the information he only recently dismissed.
In addition to the matter of FBI informants, Rosenberg also admitted the following about January 6th:
“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.”
Project Veritas founder and CEO James O’Keefe revealed that Rosenberg’s article titled, “The Next Big Lies: Jan 6 was No Big Deal, or A Left-Wing Plot,” was written around the same time as he was making contradictory statements to a Project Veritas undercover reporter.
In the video, Rosenberg says January 6 was “fun,” and lampoons NYT colleagues:
“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!’… I’m like come on, it’s not the kind place I can tell someone to man up but I kind of want to be like, ‘dude come on, you were not in any danger.’”
Rosenberg concludes, “These f*cking little dweebs who keep going on about their trauma. Shut the f*ck up. They’re f*cking b*tches.”
