Fox News has terminated its top news anchors on Wednesday, over a sexual harassment complaint was received from many years ago.

Ed Henry was a notable co-anchor on “America’s Newsroom” and was let go from his position when an independent law firm led an investigation into claims from a former employee accusing the anchor of sexual misconduct.

News Leaders Give Explanation

Fox News Media President Jay Wallace and the media CEO Suzanne Scott both released a memo concerning the matter.

“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,” the media higher-ups 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 concluded. 

A New Host Is Still in the Works

As for the future of “America’s Newsroom,” Henry’s spot will be filled by rotating anchors, for the time being, Fox News reports

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

“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 first joined Fox in 2011 after completing seven years of working at CNN. After a rough patch in 2016, when a tabloid magazine accused him of having an extramarital affair, he worked his way into being a relatively reliable Pro-Trump host. 

Fox Goes Left

Conservatives have been increasingly critical of the news station over the past few years, as Fox continues to hire prominent radical Democrats. Last year, the news platformed shocked viewers by bringing on long-time Fox basher Donna Brazile. 

Acting as the interim chairwoman of the Democrat Party, Brazile has been a vicious voice against President Trump and his voter base. 

President Trump has also had a contention with the media platform and has called them out for what he claims in bias against him many times. 

New Murdoch CEO is Questionable

The stem of the problem appears to point towards the new CEO, Lachlan Murdoch, who many conservatives continue to be wary 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 unknown, and as more controversial hosts are brought on, questions remain on the direction the company is going. 

Henry’s termination appears to be just another Fox host gone with more firings possibly still to come.

  1. Fox news is being run By a closet POS Demorat OAN is starting to be the only news Outfit worth watching. FOX has a lot of good People but there owner and management sucks

  2. It’s sad to see a talent like Ed Henry fall to all this political correctness B.S. At some point real people are going to get fed up with the trash that is being force fed to us by a very small minority of people.

  3. Something by is wrong about this. Something that happened years ago is now newsworthy and the female isn’t named. Yes was a good honest reporter, but honesty has no value any more

  4. Our once Great Nation seems to inflicted with the same “Virus” that destroyed the other Great Nations whose names are found in both the Bible and History Books.

    Will it and the leaders of the other Nations be able to rescue The World without God’s help in our lifetimes?

  5. I have said in the pass the Murdoch family is nothing more than a family of liberals. “Conservatives have been increasingly critical of the news station over the past few years, as Fox continues to hire prominent radical Democrats. Last year, the news platformed shocked viewers by bringing on long-time Fox basher Donna Brazile. This was the same person that gave Hillary Clinton the question that was to be ask during the presidential debates in 2018. I also have noticed how the programing has changed and the firing of conservative host keep popping up. I no longer count on FOX News for my conservative news. I find more conservative news on “Social Media Channels” these days. it’s just matter of time before FOX News gets rid of Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and other conservatives that calls out the liberals for there injustices. FOX News is not longer fair and balance.
