1. Just keeping up the "Conservative traditions" at Faux News...

Surely sexual misconduct is as much a tradition at Faux News as statues, flags, racism and gun culture. Why would they punish a man just keeping up the long running tradition?

... it's a good move by FOX. To act quickly, they must know more... but what about the man in the White House?

6. We won't hear one peep from them about all of the rape cases against the cheeto in chief.

Nor will fox "news"/propaganda talk about his cozy relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.

5. CNN story on this

Ed Henry fired from Fox News over sexual misconduct allegation

By Brian Stelter, CNN Business
Updated 9:24 AM ET, Wed July 1, 2020



New York (CNN Business) - Fox News said Wednesday that Ed Henry, one of its top news anchors, has been fired after an investigation into an allegation was leveled by a former employee.

"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," Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and president Jay Wallace wrote in an internal memo. The executives said that an outside law firm was immediately brought in to investigate the claims.

"‪Ed was suspended the same day and removed from his on-air responsibilities pending investigation," they said. "Based on investigative findings, Ed has been terminated."‬

Until last week, Henry was a rising star at Fox, responsible for co-anchoring three hours of morning news coverage on the network. Henry did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

This is a developing story. Check back for more...

Sexual assault seems common among their staff.

12. Yes it is!

Punchable faces seem to be common at Faux, and in the republican party.

8. Good to see him go. Sad to hear about more sexual violation.

The s.o.. tried to appear normal, a regular, intelligent guy, and he'd dress up his abhorrent ideas to seem normal, reasonale.

Boy, am I glad to see him go!
