Fired anchor Ed Henry files suit against Fox News, CEO Suzanne Scott

Last year, Fox News fired correspondent Ed Henry in response to allegations of sexual harassment. Henry denies those charges, however — and this week, he went after his former employer in court.

According to the Daily Caller, Henry filed a defamation suit on Wednesday against Fox News and network CEO Suzanne Scott.

Henry’s claims

In his complaint, Henry cited an internal memo from July 1, 2020, that was later made public. According to the Daily Caller, it read in part: “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.”

It added: “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.”

Henry went on to allege that he was smeared and then fired as part of an effort by Scott to divert attention from her having “been an instrument to cover up the existence of sexual misconduct at Fox News.”

What’s more, the former reporter asserts that Scott “was trying to save her own career and burnish her image as a tough, no-nonsense female executive who cleaned up Fox News.”

Fox fires back

For its part, Fox News denounced Henry’s contentions in a statement to USA Today that also accused its one-time employee of having made poor personal decisions.

“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 June 30 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,” it added.

Fox went on: “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.”

Not the only target

At the time of his firing, the Daily Caller reported that Henry had begun working for Fox News in 2011 and had served as White House correspondent before hosting America’s Newsroom.

Fox News is not Henry’s only target, however. In a tweet on July 2, he announced similar lawsuits aimed at CNN and NPR, USA Today reported.

  11. I also make a salary from home, but this is not the place to advertise your businesses.
    It is also inappropriate and possibly ileagle to post income claims without also posting average salaries of others at all levels within the company.

  12. There is no point for making a statement about the article when the forum has been hijacked by false advertisements about at home income.
