It’s been nearly two years since reporter James Rosen left Fox News in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.
Rosen toils these days as a national investigative correspondent for Sinclair Broadcasting and given his exchange with House Speak Nancy Pelosi on Thursday, he may well have found a simpatico home – one that allows him to bait an interview subject and then play the injured party when the subject snaps back.
After a press conference ended and Pelosi was exiting, Rosen asked, as she was exiting the press conference, “Do you hate the president?”
Hilarity, and more than a little anger on the part of Pelosi, ensued.
Following Pelosi’s dressing down of the network and their reporter, a Sinclair spokesperson issued a statement insisting that Rosen meant “no disrespect” to the speaker and after reviewing the incident at the presser, felt “this was clearly not meant to be an inflammatory question.”
