Some national reporters are still seeking “therapy to deal with the trauma” from the events at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

The infamous riot when people stormed the Capitol building has turned into an event that many Democrats are using as a power grab and a way to demonize conservatives. There’s even a Jan. 6 select committee being formed, spearheaded by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other leftists.

Reports from outlets such as PBS, Bloomberg, and NBC are still claiming they are traumatized from that day.

“I’m still not sleeping like I used to, even to this day,” PBS correspondent Lisa Desjardins told Vice.

Reporters didn’t just talk about having trouble sleeping. Bloomberg News’ Erik Wasson said of his various “symptoms” following Jan. 6.

In the Vice article by Cameron Joseph, he wrote that “Wasson said he experienced symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder—depression, short-tempered irritability that led to fights with his wife over nothing. This went on for nearly a month.”

Wasson even compared the time we’re living in following Jan. 6 to the ending of a horror movie.

“It’s eerily back to normal,” he said. “But sometimes It feels like one of those horror movies, like the end of ‘Jaws.’ Everything feels copacetic on the beach. But you wonder if there’s anything out there.”
