FOX NEWS RESPONDS:

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. We will unequivocally defend his right to operate as a member of what up until now has always been a free press.

Ouch.

Answer to the question: on her morning news show, “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” I just hear her a few minutes ago refer to, “Our colleague over at the State Department, James Rosen, who reports for Fox News.” They seriously over-reached.

Yeah, I’ve noticed Fox getting sudden new respect as a news organization.
