A Fox News anchor is sued for sexual harassment and assault. Where have I heard this before?

I have read a lot of federal lawsuits in my time, but I’ve never seen one that starts with a trigger warning.

And yet there it is, in big red letters at the top of the lawsuit two women just filed against Fox News, veteran anchor Ed Henry and some of his illustrious Fox colleagues:

“Trigger warning: This document contains highly graphic information of a sexual nature, including sexual assault.”

What follows is a sordid set of allegations against Henry, who was fired July 1 after the network became aware of the claims.

The lawsuit alleges that Henry coerced Jennifer Eckhart, a young Fox staffer, into a sexual relationship, culminating in a violent rape in a Manhattan hotel room in 2017 that left her bruised and bloody. The complaint is replete with images of graphic texts from Henry to the young woman. “Good long session last time,” said one. “Left you bruised batter dazed sated begging for more.” Henry's lawyer has promised to prove the relationship was consensual.

1. It's surprising Geraldo has not been caught up in this mess

abusing women given his kiss and tell track record of trying to embarrass ex-lovers, and his assault on Bette Midler.
