(TheConservativeNews.org) – It’s a sad time at Fox News.
According to an explosive report from the Daily Mail, Fox News host Ed Henry has been accused by a female coworker who was a Fox producer of “handcuffing” her before proceeding to rape her in a sexual attack. Apparently, the allegations were so serious that the network was forced to part ways with Henry earlier this month.
Jennifer Eckhart, a former associate producer, alleges Ed Henry attempted to pressure her into a sexual relationship. She claims he handcuffed her to a bed and violently raped her after she repeatedly attempted to deflect his advances.
This isn’t the first time Henry has been accused of questionable or downright illegal behavior. Henry once took some time off from his position as a White House Correspondent after a magazine published a scathing report about an affair he allegedly had with a stripper in Las Vegas.
Shakeup at Fox
Ed Henry isn’t the only one in the spotlight at Fox. Sexual harassment allegations have also been lodged against Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity. Journalist Cathy Areu has joined Eckhart in a lawsuit against the network and all of the hosts mentioned here. Areu alleges, among other things, that Hannity threw money on a table and told the other men at the network to take her out on a date.
Fox has fired Ed Henry, but stands behind the network and its hosts. They seem to believe immediately dismissing Henry was the appropriate measure and that the rest of the accusations are baseless.
