Fox News dismisses anchor Ed Henry over sexual misconduct allegations

Fox News just confirmed that “America’s Newsroom” host Ed Henry has been fired as of Wednesday. The network reportedly fired Henry due to sexual misconduct allegations made by a former Fox employee on June 25.

The Daily Mail reported on Wednesday that Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott and Fox News Media President and Executive Editor Jay Wallace sent a memo to network staffers that they had received a complaint last week alleging willful sexual misconduct on Henry’s part two years ago.

Fox suspended Henry the day the complaint was filed and after outside investigators probed the complaint, the network opted to dismiss the prominent anchor.

“We would love to bring a very serious matter to your attention in an effort toward full transparency given the actions we have taken to improve the culture here over the past four years,” the memo read.

“FOX New Media strictly prohibits all forms of sexual harassment, misconduct and discrimination. We will continue striving to maintain a safe and inclusive workplace for all employees.”

Henry has been with Fox since 2011, originally joining the network as its White House correspondent during the Obama administration after leaving CNN. He moved to a position as a late-morning news anchor as he began climbing the ladder at Fox.

An extra-marital affair sidelined his career in 2016. He took a four-month leave of absence to work on his marriage with NPR’s Chief Washington Editor Shirley Hung after a Las Vegas cocktail waitress revealed that the two had been having an affair for ten months.

Henry rejoined the network as chief national correspondent in 2017. He then moved to co-host “America’s Newsroom” in December of 2019.

Details of the accusations against Henry have yet to be released, and the network only said that the alleged incident happened “years ago.”

  1. Sounds to be a rush to judgement. The senior exes at Fox are starting to act like CNN, MSNBC, and the other wackos in the media. While we don’t know all the details – nor should we – it would seem to be more appropriate to place him under suspension until the investigation is completed. Maybe the exes at Fox haven’t heard about “due process.” This causes this loyal watcher to wonder what other things the Fox exes are trying to pull over on us.

  2. I already added a comment but forgot to say we are only human and have faults. This happened 2 years ago. Let it go and rehire Ed. Donna Brazille and Juan Williams should be fired. They are a disgrace and liars. I think my time with Fox is ending.

  3. Suzanne Scott better watch her rear because she could be caught in the same trap that she sets for other employees. And she can go home and sleep tonight? Apparently she does not know about forgiveness. And the witch that said these stories left Fox so it’s not Suzanne’s problem now. Shame on Scott. A Marxist trying to get ahead.

  4. WALLACE, WILLIAMS AND BRAZILLE TO NAME A FEW NEED TO GO, AND BEFORE NOVEMBER ELECTION.
    ED HENRY IS A GREAT REPORTER AND SHOULD BE PUT BACK ON THE PAYROLL. BRINGS ME TO MY POINT, DOES THIS MEAN THAT BIDENS AFFAIR IS STILL ON THE BOOKS. OH THATS RIGHT, HE IS A DEMOGRUNT

    1. The only trustworthy news sources left are the C-SPAN channels.
      Hard to spin live coverage. But the dems would if they could.
      I worry about the 2020 election. A LOT.
      THAT IS WHAT THE DEMS ARE CONCENTRATING ON. NOT FIXING OUR
      COUNTRY’S PROBLEMS. BIDEN WILL NOT BE PRESIDENT IF HE DOES WIN
      HIS VP WILL BE, CUZ JOE WILL JUST SLINK BACK INTO HIS BASEMENT HOLE
      AND DIE. IF HE CAN EVEN FIGURE OUT HOW……..

  5. Ed Henry was a good reporter, always polite, and HE DID NOT DESERVE TO BE FIRED AFTER WHAT HAPPENED YEARS AGO. i HAVENT SEEN A Perfect DEMORAT yet!!! T hey are all scumbags–radicalized down to their rotten teeth, condescending, rude, EVIL, mean, terrible personalities. COMMUNISTS IS IS WHAT THEY ARE! They have not compassion for anyone=–self centered no goods. There are not enough adjectives to describe the liberal RATS such as Satans Children as we call them in Colorado!
    GEt rid of Donna Brazile( she is annoying and not terriby bright. Also rid of whiney, liberal Wallace. And Marie Harf–what Turnip Truck did she fall out of?????

  6. It’s just because he is a conservative and upper management of Fox has been taken over by Liberals. I had an affair 34 years ago. I divorced my wife and the affair ended. I then married another young beautiful lady and have been faithful to her for over 35 years now. Should I lose my social and professional positions over this? It’s in the past and remains in the past.

  7. THIS DOES IT FOR ME! IT WAS BECAUSE OF BILL HENRY I HAVE STAYED WITH FOX THIS LONG. THIS IS THE LAST STRAW!!!!

  8. Wallace, Williams, Brazille all need to go. They are disgusting and I hate all their expressions when others talk the truth!!
    Watch Tucker and Hannity and Ingram Report

  9. So, now you can be fired just for being accused of something?—Whatever happened to innocent until PROVEN guilty IN A COURT OF LAW?!!!!!

  10. Your 110% right!!! I don’t understand how they (FOX) could even hire Donna Brazille AFTER THE FACT, she gave Hillary Clinton answers to the question’s during a debate with Sander’s in the 2016 election.

  11. Get rid of everyone on Fox news and close down, you think anyone is buying this, and if he did who cares “years ago” that’s between him and his wife. The next one to leave FOX will be me.

  12. I can’t believe the Fox execs. would fire Ed Henry. Another rush to judgement to the squishy owners!

  13. I can’t believe they fired him. Do they even have proof that he did this or is it a rush to judgement without proof

  14. Paying for Fox just means they are getting to big for there own good. Been watching a lot of newsmax instead

  15. Trusted FOX to be fair to report the news accurately and unafraid … trusted FOX because of the fine reporters and leaders they had … even when they hired Juan Williams … they seemed to be helping out a wronged colleague in the world of news reporters … fooled me, Juan and his 😜 crazy points of view are taking over … very little FOX reporters I now listen to! ED HENRY NEEDS TO BE FORGIVEN BY HIS WIFE AND FOX NEWS NEEDS TO UNDO THE WRONG THEY HAVE DONE ON HIS BEHALF!

  16. He must be an awful guy; after all, he gave his sister part of his liver to save her life. Sounds like a women-hater to me. I’m finding NewsMax more interesting every day. I have been with Fox since O.J.’s trial but it’s getting way too MeToo – guilty until he can prove his innocence… go ahead, believe anything you hear – I guess I will have to start believing everything I hear about Fox News. … and where does this end? It used to be that an employer’s integrity did not tell the world about why one was fired (unless an open legal case) but political correctness or fear of the left is more important than integrity and loyalty.

  17. I was very pleased to find this web-site.I needed to thanks for your time for this wonderful learn!! I undoubtedly enjoying each little little bit of it and I have you bookmarked to take a look at new stuff you weblog post.
