Another top Fox News anchor was fired on Wednesday over a sexual harassment complaint that allegedly happened many years ago.

After an investigation from an independent firm, Ed Henry, a notable co-anchor on “America’s Newsroom,” was terminated from his position after a former employee accused him of sexual misconduct. 

Fox Top Execs Respond

Fox News Media President Jay Wallace and the media CEO Suzanne Scott released a joint memo in response to the incident.

“We would like to bring a very serious matter to your attention in an effort toward full transparency given the many actions we have taken to improve the culture here over the last four years,” they wrote.

“On Thursday, June 25, we received a complaint about Ed Henry from a former employee’s attorney involving willful sexual misconduct in the workplace years ago. We immediately retained an outside law firm (which has never represented FOX News in investigations or litigation) to independently investigate the claims. Ed was suspended the same day and removed from his on-air responsibilities pending investigation. Based on investigative findings, Ed has been terminated. FOX News 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,” the memo continued. 

No Word Yet on a Replacement

As for a new host for “America’s Newsroom,” Henry’s position will be filled by rotating anchors until a permanent host is found, Fox News reports

Fox News completely changed its human resource department in 2017 by requiring an in-depth process, including a mandatory annual Inclusion and Harassment Prevention training. 

“We encourage any employee who has a sexual harassment, discrimination or misconduct complaint of any form to report it immediately, as we have said repeatedly over the last four years,” Scott and Wallace wrote.

Henry was welcomed to Fox in 2011 after ending seven years of working at CNN. After a controversial matter in 2016, when a tabloid magazine accused him of having an extramarital affair, he worked his way into having a strong viewing fan base. 

Fox News Goes Downhill

Conservatives have been more critical of the news station over recent years, as Fox continues to hire prominent Democrats and make questionable hirings. Last year, the news platformed shocked viewers by hiring on long-time Fox basher Donna Brazile. 

Appointed as the interim chairwoman of the Democrat Party, Brazile has been a vocal voice against President Trump and his supporters.

President Trump has also had disagreements with Fox News and has called them out for what he claims in bias against him many times. 

New Leadership Brings New Changes

The core of the problem appears to point towards the new CEO, Lachlan Murdoch, who many conservatives have been critical of. 

Lachlan’s younger brother, James Murdoch, a former Fox executive, has told friends he’s embarrassed by Fox News coverage and adheres to a more liberal political position than his brother or his father, The Times reported.

The future of Fox News is still up in the air, and as more controversial hosts are brought on, questions remain on the route the company will decide on.

Henry’s termination appears to be just another Fox host gone with more terminations possibly to occur in the future.

  1. FOX Leadership is becoming a POS run news that was great at one time now there becoming just as bad as the other garbage outlets. It is looking like OAN is the only good News Outfit

  2. FOX HAS RECENTLY HIRED TRAITORS TO OUR COUNTRY AS DEMONSTRATED BY THEIR ACTIONS THAT UNDERMINE OUR REPUBLIC. THEIR ATTRIBUTES ARE LYING, SLANDERING, MALIGNING ANYONE THEY DISAGREE WITH, BEING TOTALLY UNFAIR AND CREATING FICTITIOUS SO CALLED NEWS TO KEEP THE PUBLIC SNOWED AS TO THE REAL NEWS AND INFORMATION. THEY LOVE TO MANIPULATE OTHERS TO THEIR OWN ADVANTAGE, NO MATTER THE COST TO OTHERS. THEY DON’T CARE WHO THEY HURT AS LONG AS THEY END UP GETTING THEIR SPOILED ROTTEN CHILDISH WAY.

  3. Is it just me or what. Did these ladies report the incident at the time of occurrence? If they didn’t then it makes me wonder if these ladies are paid to come up with wishful thinking. Problem was that he wasn’t a democrat where you can catch them with a smoking gun in their hands and no one else in the room and a murder victim on the floor with a magazine emptied in them and they still would declare it the worse case of suicide. Republican or conservative could be in Florida and the crime could happen in Antarctica and the Conservative be surrounded by friends and family and video and they would still be blamed for pulling the trigger.

  4. I agree, FOX is going to lose it’s best supporters. Chris Wallace is a disgrace. Fox “leadership” is liberal leaning and it shows.

  5. It’s getting harder and harder to watch Fox News. If it were for Tucker Carlson and 3 or 4 others, I would stop watching Fox News.

  6. FOX BY SEPTEMBER. A GIANT FIX NEWS MUZZLE WILL DROP ON THE REMAINING CONSERVATIVES. THE MURDERDOCKS INTEND TO DEFEAT TRUMP. I SUGGEST TO THE TALK SHOW HOSTS START LOOKING TO BUILD YOUR OWN NETWORK I ALREADY HAVE TWO NEW DOMAIN NAMES. PROAMERICANRACING.COM AND PROAMERICANFOOTBALL.COM AND TODAY I WILL HAVE PROAMERICAN NEWS.COM. HERE IS TODAY’S HEADLINE.
    IF THE MONGOLIAN BLACK DEATH TURNS UP IN A NEW YORK NURSING HOME YOU WILL KNOW CUOMO IS WORKING WITH THE CHINESE COMMUNIST. CHECK DIBLASIO FOR FLEAS.
