Ed Henry sues Fox News Network for defamation

Fox News Network is being sued by former anchor Ed Henry who was fired in the summer of 2020, according to the Daily Caller. Henry, who was fired in July due to allegations of sexual misconduct, filed suit against both the network and CEO Suzanne Scott on Wednesday. 

Fox News responded to the allegations against Henry saying that they retained outside representation that will look into the claims Henry has was involved in sexual misconduct:

“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,” the network wrote in an internal memo published July 1, 2020. 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.”

According to the former anchor, that statement issued by the network’s CEO “sandbagged” him and lent “credence to the false allegations.”

Henry asserted that Scott made the statement 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.” The suit claims, “Ms. Scott had long been an instrument to cover up the existence of sexual misconduct at Fox News.”

Fox News responded to Henry’s claims in a statement on Wednesday saying, “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 reads.

“Based on the results of those findings, we promptly terminated Mr. Henry’s employment for willful sexual misconduct and stand by the decision entirely. We are 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.”

Fox News addressed their CEO’s part as a subject of the suit in their response to a Daily Caller’s request for comment:

“Under the leadership of CEO Suzanne Scott, FOX News Media has worked tirelessly to transform the company culture, implementing annual, mandatory in-person harassment prevention training, creating an entirely new reporting structure, more than tripling the size of our HR footprint, conducting quarterly company meetings and mentoring events, as well as executing a zero tolerance policy regarding workplace misconduct for which we engage outside independent firms to handle investigations.”

If Fox News does not get Paul Ryan off their Board of Directors, they will soon be in complete ruin.
