The Justice Department's surveillance of a Fox News reporter is "disturbing," David Axelrod said Tuesday. 

The former Obama campaign adviser specially said he found it troublesome that the Department of Justice decided to label chief Fox News Washington correspondent James Rosen a criminal co-conspirator in a national security leaks case.

"I do think there are real issues regarding the relationship with the media on this leak matter," Axelrod said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "The notion of naming a journalist as a co-conspirator for receiving information is something that I find very disturbing.
