Matthew Rosenberg


The New York Times

Matthew Rosenberg is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative correspondent for The New York Times. He has reported on Russia’s attempts to influence in the 2016 election, explored the Pentagon’s push into artificial intelligence and led the Times’ reporting that exposed how Cambridge Analytica harvested private information from tens of millions of Facebook profiles. He previously spent 15 years as a foreign correspondent in Asia, Africa and the Middle East, and was expelled from Afghanistan in 2014 because of his reporting.

In Afghanistan, Matthew’s reporting exposed how the C.I.A. made monthly cash drops at the office of President Hamid Karzai, detailed attacks by Afghan soldiers on American troops and dubbed the country's first international boxing match the "Squabble in Kabul" (like the fight, the name has not gone down boxing history). Mr. Rosenberg also managed to slip in a few fly-fishing trips to the mountains in northeastern Afghanistan, where he was thoroughly outdone by Afghan children who used bamboo sticks for poles.

Matthew previously worked for The Wall Street Journal and The Associated Press. In addition to the Pulitzer Prize, he has won three George Polk Awards and a Gerald Loeb Award.

Matthew was born in New York and graduated from McGill University in Montreal.
