Josh Rogin Career

Josh Rogin started his career after his graduation. He worked as a journalist for Newsweek, The Daily Beast, Foreign Politics, Bloomberg View, The Washington Post, Federal Computer Week, Japan’s Asahi Shimbun, and Congressional Quarterly, covering foreign policy and national security. Rogin released a post in April 2020 concerning diplomatic cables written by US diplomats in 2018, which detailed safety and staffing issues the diplomats had expressed following three visits to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in between 2017 – 2018.

The WIV scientists said they lacked the necessary manpower and training to safely operate the Institute’s Biosafety Level 4 (BSL-4) facility, according to the cables. The Institute was also undertaking dangerous research on bat coronaviruses in their facilities, according to US diplomats. Some US authorities believe the cables back up a theory that the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s research may have resulted in a lab mishap that caused the COVID-19 international pandemic.


In 2014, Rogin was attributed with capturing and exposing words made by US Secretary of State John Kerry in a private meeting of the Trilateral Commission, in which Kerry suggested that Israel could become a “apartheid state” without permission, the invitees had all promised not to record or report on the speakers’ statements. Kerry was forced to write a letter of apology to Jewish and Israeli leaders after Rogin published a story in The Daily Beast. Rogin initially indicated that the information came from a recording made by an attendee. He eventually admitted that he was the one who made the recording.

Rogin eventually justified himself by claiming that he was not an invited guest and hence was not obligated by the non-disclosure agreement. In 2013, comic Dan Nainan assaulted Rogin after Rogin tweeted disparagingly about Nainan’s standup performance at a charity comedy event at the DC Improv. Following his set, Nainan noticed Rogin’s tweets and approached him in the rear of the bar, punching him twice in the face in front of several witnesses. Nainan was apprehended and pleaded guilty to assault later.
