Top Fox News DC Reporter James Rosen Left Network After Harassment Claims

Top Fox News DC Reporter James Rosen Left Network After Harassment Claims

"James Rosen is exiting the company at the end of the year", a Fox News spokesperson confirms, without providing further detail. NPR spoke with eight of his former colleagues at the Fox News Washington, D.C., bureau, who said Rosen had a long history of making sexual advances and aggressive flirting toward co-workers.

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.

When she refused his advance, Rosen allegedly attempted to steal her sources and poach stories from the reporter.

According to emails revealed by Gawker in 2016, former State Department official Philippe Reines gossiped with reporters about Rosen's behavior, saying he was removed from the State Department bureau after he allegedly harassed another employee there.

Rosen has covered the White House and State Department for Fox News, and The Washington Post reported that the Justice Department had ordered an investigation of him after his reports on classified information related to North Korea. No charges were filed.

Rosen is the latest in a string of high-profile men in the news media to be accused of "inappropriate behavior", including several at Fox.

In the Spring of 2017, a younger colleague told her fellow colleagues that the two returned from lunch and Rosen allegedly tried to kiss her in the elevator. In exchange for her keeping the complaint private, NPR reported, Fox News and the producer, a foreign national, made a deal "that enabled her to extend her stay in the US", in NPR's words. Rosen then reportedly asked the reporter to stay quiet about the incident and offered her advice for getting on Brett Baier's nightly show, where he was a regular.

Fox News executives say privately it takes time to reverse problems in a culture set from the top by Ailes.

Former host Eric Bolling was suspended in August, and in September parted ways with Fox News amid allegations that he sent sexually explicit pictures to coworkers. Rudi Bakhtiar alleged that she was sacked in 2007 because she made complaints that Brian Wilson had propositioned her. After she filed an internal complaint, Fox's Ailes informed her she was being let go because of her performance. She alleged she had been subjected to a "glass ceiling".

The EEOC said it did not have sufficient evidence to support many of Herridge's accusations but ultimately sued Fox News, alleging it had unlawfully retaliated against her. He simply disappeared - just two days after attending a holiday party for Bret Baier's show colleagues. Brandi is now on extended leave from Fox News, which is the focus of an ongoing criminal inquiry by federal prosecutors for its handling of payments to women who alleged sexual harassment there.
