Chief Washington Correspondent James Rosen OUT at Fox News

Fox News‘ Chief Washington Correspondent James Rosen is leaving the news network. “James Rosen is exiting the company at the end of the year,” a Fox News spokesperson confirmed to TV Newser

TV Newser reports:

James Rosen, a stalwart of Fox News Channel’s Washington D.C. bureau, is leaving the network, TVNewser has learned. […]

Rosen, 49, has been with Fox News since 1999, 3 years after the channel launched.

As the network’s Chief Washington Correspondent, he often reported for Special Report, but was seen throughout FNC’s programming day, most recently just yesterday.

Rosen made international headlines after reports surfaced that the Obama administration spied on the reporter. In 2009, the Justice Department obtained Rosen’s telephone records in a bid to track down leakers. “The case of Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, the government adviser, and James Rosen, the chief Washington correspondent for Fox News, bears striking similarities to a sweeping leaks investigation disclosed last week in which federal investigators obtained records over two months of more than 20 telephone lines assigned to the Associated Press,” reported The Washington Post.

Not only did the Obama administration snoop on Rosen, but also fought to keep the search warrant for the reporter’s private e-mail account secret on the grounds that they might need to monitor the account for a long period of time.

Rosen, nor Fox News, have yet to announce where the veteran reporter will work next.
