In 2006, Rosen compiled Jewface, a controversial anthology of early 20th-century novelty songs about Jewish characters.[3][4]

On March 27, 2008 Rosen's front page New York Times article reported the discovery by American audio historians of French inventor Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville's 1860 phonautograph recording, the earliest known recording of the human voice to be played back.[5]

In August 2008, Rosen's Slate article "Dude, You Stole My Article" exposed a plagiarism scandal at the The Bulletin, a free alternative weekly newspaper in Montgomery County, Texas.[6] The Bulletin folded shortly after the publication of Rosen’s exposé.
