Leftist New York Times reporter Matthew Rosenberg was caught on camera admitting that the media coverage surrounding the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol protest has been intentionally “overblown” in an effort to make Trump and the GOP as a whole look bad.
In a video released by Project Veritas, Rosenberg, a national security correspondent for the Times exposed that left-wing media has intentionally taken advantage of the protest to craft a false narrative.
Rosenberg has extensively reported on the protest and has, in his writing, accused former President Donald Trump and his supporters in conservative media of using “a furious array of rumor, innuendo, partial facts and outright lies” to create “alternative narratives” making excuses for the violent mob that trespassed at the Capitol Building.
In the recording, however, Rosenberg revealed that the liberals are truthfully the ones heavily pushing a narrative.
“It’s not a big deal as they are making it, because they were making too big a deal. They were making this an organized thing that it wasn’t,” Rosenberg said in excerpts of the video.
“The Left’s reaction to it in some places was so over the top that it gave the opening the Right needed to start introducing the idea of, ‘Whoa, these people are out of control. Like it’s not as big a deal as they’re making it.’ Cause [the Left] were making too big a deal. They were making [Jan. 6] some organized thing that it wasn’t. And that gave the opening for the lunatics in the Right to be like, ‘Oh, well, nothing happened here. It was just a peaceful bunch of tourists,’ you know, and it’s like, but nobody wants [to] hear that,” he said.
The Times reporter also confirmed what many suspected – the Jan. 6 crowd was filled with “a ton of FBI informants.”
Project Veritas CEO James O’Keefe said the video was filmed around the same time the hypocritical Rosenberg was working on a piece titled, “The Next Big Lies: Jan 6 was No Big Deal, or A Left-Wing Plot,” which was one of several published by the Times to commemorate the anniversary the Capitol protest.
In other clips Rosenberg can be seen blasting a number of his colleagues for acting like “f***ing b****es” by claiming to have been traumatized by the violence.
“I know I’m supposed to be traumatized, but like, all these colleagues who were in the building, and they’re young and are like, ‘Oh my God, it was so scary,'” Rosenberg said. “I’m like, ‘F*** off.'”
He also said that “[the Times is] not the kind place I can tell somebody to man up, but I kind of want to be like, ‘Dude, come on, like, you were not in any danger.'”
The Times writer had a very different tone when speaking publicly about the day. In another article featured by the outlet on the anniversary of the protest, Rosenberg said he too was “scared” by how “the most ordinary people were often the most violent.” He even compared what he witnessed to overseas conflicts in military hot zones like Iraq and Afghanistan.
“I spent 15 years overseas in some fairly violent places – Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia. At moments, Jan. 6 was intense,” he said. “Not the entire day, and certainly not everyone who was there. But there were folks in the crowd who were ready to fight.”
Rosenberg is the perfect embodiment of these leftists in media intent on destroying our country by pushing anti-American propaganda. They are willing to blatantly lie to the American public so long as it aides them in achieving their overall goal of keeping the radical Democrats in power.
