Most journalists have a soft spot for Marty Rudolf, the online Political News Junkie with whom many Washington and New York journalists are well acquainted. To be sure, Marty gets personal. Not overly so, but still, personal. Every day he likes to strike up conversations by posing questions on Twitter such as, “Hi Betsy, how are things in the Fishbowl?” orĀ  “@AdamSerwer Do you Enjoy being a News Reporter for http://msnbc.com ? I’m a Political News Junkie Online!”

Apparently Fox News’ Chief Washington Correspondent James Rosen hasn’t received the briefing on Marty and responded to him with skepticism and a pointed accusation. Is there a more sinister side to Marty or is Rosen too jaded?

We requested a comment from Rosen. So far, no response.
