Former Fox personality Ed Henry sues netword for defamation

The only defense for a defamation lawsuit is if what was said about the person was the truth. Will that be the case for former Fox News Host Ed Henry?

Henry filed a lawsuit against Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott Wednesday for defamation stemming from statements made about sexual misconduct allegations against him at the network in July 2020, the Washington Examiner reported. The former “America’s Newsroom” anchor was fired from the network last year following the allegations.

Henry brought the suit against Scott Wednesday claiming her statements about the allegations “sandbagged” him. The suit further asserts that her actions lent “credence to the false allegations because she was trying to save her own career and burnish her image as a tough, no-nonsense female executive who cleaned up Fox News,” according to USA Today. He claimed her statements “sandbagged” him

“In reality, however, Ms. Scott had long been an instrument to cover up the existence of sexual misconduct at Fox News,” the filing claimed. The suit also contends that she “has repeatedly covered up sexual misconduct by senior Fox News management.”

The network disputed Henry’s claim in a statement to the USA Today. The network reaffirmed its position on what Henry is accused of doing and took shots at the anchor who was previously publicly disgraced for an extramarital affair with a Las Vegas cocktail waitress.

“As we stated one year ago, Fox News Media conducted a thorough independent investigation into Ed Henry immediately after we were made aware of a serious misconduct claim against him by a former employee,” the statement read. “Based on the results of those findings, we promptly terminated Mr. Henry’s employment for willful sexual misconduct and stand by the decision entirely.”

The company also said it was “fully prepared to vigorously defend against these baseless allegations as Mr. Henry further embarrasses himself in a lawsuit rife with inaccuracies after driving his personal life into the ground with countless extramarital affairs in a desperate attempt for relevance and redemption.”

Henry was accused of raping a former fellow employee in 2020 and was promptly fired. Both Henry and the network were named in a lawsuit brought by the accuser who alleged that Fox News tried to cover up the story.

The truth will come out in court as these allegations are examined from a criminal and civil angle. Whether Henry will be convicted or Fox News be forced to pay out punitive damages will be decided in a court of law, though both sides seem intent on bringing the serious matter into the court of public opinion.
