Justice Department affidavit labels Fox News journalist as possible ‘co-conspirator’

Justice Department affidavit labels Fox News journalist as possible ‘co-conspirator’

Michael Clemente, Fox News’ executive vice president of news, defended Rosen in a statement issued Monday afternoon.

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