James Rosen joined FOX News Channel (FNC) in 1999 and currently serves as the network’s Chief Washington correspondent.
Most recently, Rosen made headlines for his involvement in a missing State Department briefing video with former Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki. A 2013 exchange between Rosen and Psaki regarding the Iran deal and an exchange on the State Department midleading reporters by protecting the policy in diplomatic negations was discovered deleted in 2016. The State Department confirmed the tape was intentionally deleted and resulted in an ongoing investigation.
