Watch James O’Keefe confront Rosenberg about his comments:
The Washington Times further reports:
“The left’s overreaction – 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 of a deal they’re making it,’” Mr. Rosenberg said on the video. “Because they were making it too big a deal.”
He continued: “They were making it this organized thing that it wasn’t, and that gave the opening for lunatics on 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.”
Rosenberg also appears to mock coworkers who said they were “traumatized” over the alleged insurrection last year, calling two colleagues, Emily Cochrane and Nicholas Fandos, “f—ing bitches” and refers to other co-workers as “f—ing little dweebs,” the footage shows.

The New York Post adds:
Project Veritas released footage Tuesday showing Matthew Rosenberg, who covers national security for the Gray Lady, mocking coworkers who said they were “traumatized” over the insurrection last year.
In the comments captured by the conservative outlet known for its media sting operations, Rosenberg also talked about the rumored “pee tape” of former President Donald Trump, calling it “ridiculous” and saying it “of course doesn’t exist.”
These comments run counter to Rosenberg and The New York Times’s previous reporting on the U.S. Capitol riot. (RELATED: Flashback – New York Times Buried Kenosha Article Until After Election, Says Ex-Reporter)
