James Rosen is a Washington correspondent for the Fox News Channel, which he joined in 1999. Assigned to the White House for the last five years, he has covered George W. Bush’s presidency since its inception. On Sept. 11, 2001, Rosen reported from the Pentagon, arriving at the White House before dawn the next day. In March 2002, he was among a select group of reporters who accompanied Vice President Cheney on his tour of the Middle East, which touched down in Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, among other countries. Earlier, Rosen covered the final year of the Clinton presidency, including the president’s cross-country campaign for Democratic candidates in 2000 and his official trips to Colombia, Germany, Portugal, Russia, and the Ukraine. Now assigned to the State Department and covering foreign affairs, Rosen has traveled extensively with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and made national news with his in-depth interviews of her. He covered Rice’s first foreign trip as secretary of state, and has reported from three dozen countries on five continents. Rosen has also distinguished himself by scoring a number of exclusives, including sit-down interviews with four justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. He interviewed the late Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist an unprecedented three times, and their final session together, conducted in May 2001 and more than an hour long, marked the first time news cameras are known to have been permitted inside the chambers of any justice. In July 2003, Rosen conducted a lengthy interview with Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, in which she discussed, for the first time, the court’s workings during the historic Bush v. Gore case. Others who have granted rare interviews to Rosen include acclaimed writer Tom Wolfe and the late Herblock, Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist for the Washington Post from 1946 until his death in 2001.
