On Wednesday night, Project Veritas released the second part of its series on New York Times reporter Matthew Rosenberg, who said that coverage of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot was overblown and that "there were a ton of FBI informants among the people who attacked the Capitol."
Rosenberg spoke about the story about Trump's "pee tape," which made waves in 2018, saying it was essentially fabricated, "it involved CIA and NSA," he said. "It involved Trump and involved that ridiculous, like, 'pee tape,' which of course doesn't exist."
In 2017, BuzzFeed published "…sections of an unverified intelligence report on former President Donald Trump’s relationship with Russia, frequently referred to as the Steele Dossier," which claimed there was video of Trump engaging in lewd acts while on a trip to Russia.
Rosenberg also said that in The New York Times newsroom there is "…a real internal tug of war between, like the reasonable people and some of the crazier leftist sh*t that's worked its way in there."
He added, "They're not the majority, but they're very vocal, loud minority that dominate social media and, therefore, has just hugely outsized influence," and said he believes this is "alienating" its subscribers.
Rosenberg called his coworkers at The New York Times "bullies," "neurotic" and "…not the clearest thinkers…"
Rosenberg also discussed coworker Adam Goldman, saying, "He's a terrible writer… He's just not good at conceptualizing things. He's not good with words. It’s a skill. It's a hard one."
Rosenberg added "…editors do all his writing for him."
Referencing the ongoing legal battle between The New York Times and Project Veritas, Rosenberg said, "James O’Keefe," referencing the Project Veritas founder, "that was a f*ck up. We may well lose that one."
O’Keefe confronted Rosenberg with the footage to which the Times reporter said he "absolutely" stands by the comments made.
