James Rosen Career
Rosen is the chief White House correspondent for Newsmax. Prior to joining the station, he worked for Sinclair Broadcast Group. Rosen previously worked for Fox News for nineteen years, where he covered the White House and State Department beats, served as chief Washington correspondent, and filed stories from Capitol Hill, the Pentagon, the Supreme Court, the campaign trail, nearly all fifty states, and forty foreign countries across five continents.
His exclusive reporting on North Korea’s nuclear weapons program prompted the Obama administration to designate James as a criminal co-conspirator in a violation of the Espionage Act, an unprecedented action against an American journalist; the ensuing furor sparked a national debate about press freedoms in the Obama era and led to procedural reforms at the Department of Justice for the treatment of reporters in national security leak investigations.
When it was revealed that officials at the State Department had improperly deleted James’s probing line of questioning about the Iran nuclear deal from the department’s archives of daily press briefings, it prompted procedural reforms. Rosen has interviewed presidents, secretaries of state, CIA directors, and literary and popular culture celebrities such as Paul McCartney, Laura Hillenbrand, Tom Wolfe, and others.

James Rosen Books
The Strong Man: John Mitchell and the Secrets of Watergate was published by Doubleday in 2008; it was a biography of Richard Nixon’s attorney general, John N. Mitchell, and his involvement in the Watergate scandal. Rosen had spent 17 years researching and writing The Strong Man; the project was initially funded by a grant from William F. Buckley Jr. shortly after graduating from journalism school.
Rosen edited A Torch Kept Lit: Great Lives of the Twentieth Century, which was published in 2016 from William Buckley’s writings. Rosen’s introduction is included, as are prefaces to each of the 52 eulogies or obituaries that follow. His son, Christopher Buckley, has suggested that the book, which was published eight years after his father’s death, maybe the best of his father’s 60-plus books.
