BRIAN STELTER (HOST): Do you feel like the press overreacted?HILARY ROSEN: I do think there was an over amount of hyperbole. We saw media outlets change their headlines. I think the FBI felt like there was a media overreaction. What we saw was people at the FBI backgrounding reporters and walk back the hysteria Comey created. We saw a lot of it.

They knew they created a hysteria.
