Fox News Executive Slams DOJ For Naming Reporter ‘Criminal Co-Conspirator’

Fox News issued a blistering statement on Monday condemning the Department of Justice for surveilling their chief Washington correspondent James Rosen during a 2009 investigation into a leak of classified information regarding North Korea.

“We are outraged to learn today that James Rosen was named a criminal co-conspirator for simply doing his job as a reporter. In fact, it is downright chilling," said Michael Clemente, executive vice president of news editorial, according to a statement obtained by TVNewser. "We will unequivocally defend his right to operate as a member of what up until now has always been a free press.”

After successfully obtaining a signed warrant, the Department of Justice tracked Rosen's comings and goings from the State Department. Investigators also monitored his private and public phone calls and private email messages with a State Department security adviser the government suspected was responsible of leaking classified information.
