Twitter took action Wednesday to censor a hidden camera video that appears to show New York Times reporter Matthew Rosenberg trashing his younger colleagues for being "f—ing bitches" and "going on about their trauma" from the Capitol unrest on January 6, 2021.
The @UnmaskNYT account was suspended after posting the Project Veritas video on Tuesday. In the footage, the Times national security reporter is seen discussing the mainstream media's "over-the-top" reaction to the storming of the Capitol building and ridiculing his snowflake colleagues. Twitter did not say why the account was removed.
Regarding the ongoing hysterical coverage of the "January 6 stuff," Rosenberg said he was "so over it at this point" and went on to describe his own experience covering the unrest at the scene. "It was like me and two other colleagues who were there, who were outside and we were just having fun," he said. "I know, I'm supposed to be traumatized."
Rosenberg called out several of his younger colleagues at the Times who were also on Capitol Hill during the unrest, including Zolan Kanno-Youngs, Emily Cochrane, and Nick Fandos. "These f—ing little dweebs who keep going on about their trauma, I'm like, guys, 'Shut the f— up,'" Rosenberg griped, lamenting the "f—ing bitches" he was forced to put up with at work.
"All these colleagues who were in the [Capitol] building, and they're young and are like, 'Oh my God it was so scary,' I'm like, 'F— off,'" he said. Rosenberg went on to complain that the Times is "not the kind of 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 has yet to respond to the video. His comments are certain to retraumatize his "little dweeb" colleagues who almost lost their lives that fateful day. They will presumably argue that his words are tantamount to an act of physical violence. They will never "man up."
As far as the Washington Free Beacon is concerned, Rosenberg is an early frontrunner for Man of the Year 2022.
Update 12:56 p.m.: This post has been updated to include the fact that Twitter's basis for the suspension is unclear.
