Last year, Fox News fired former anchor Ed Henry following an investigation of “willful sexual misconduct in the workplace.” Nonetheless, over a year since his departure, Henry has resurfaced.
The Daily Beast relayed that the former Fox News anchor is now on Real America’s Voice, a fledgling internet and satellite TV network, with Steve Bannon as one of its contributors. Furthermore, Henry also has his online show titled Uncut Politics.
Nonetheless, seeing Henry on any television screen didn’t sit well with Wigdor LLP, the law firm representing Jennifer Eckhart, the former Fox News producer. Her accusations led to Henry’s firing, who provided a statement on Henry appearing on Real America’s Voice.
“It is unfathomable that Real America’s Voice has decided to give Mr. Henry, an alleged sexual harasser and abuser, this new platform,” the statement said.
“This recent hiring decision is yet another example of why so many survivors of abuse are afraid to come forward while their perpetrators are often rewarded in the workplace.”
Real America’s Voice and Henry’s attorney did not reply to inquiries for comment made by The Daily Beast.
Dana Perino: Sean Hannity is the Reason I’m at Fox News
“What I didn’t know is that here at Fox, he had suggested that they might want to consider me as a contributor.”
Dana Perino co-stars on The Five, but before becoming one of the stars of Fox News, she needed to find her footing at the network. In a recent podcast appearance on the Ruthless Podcast, she talked about her experience in the early years with Fox News.
Perino credited Sean Hannity for his support and guidance when she joined the news media outlet. She states that Hannity played a crucial role in helping her navigate the complex world of cable news after leaving her role as White House Press Secretary.
“Sean said, ‘Why don’t you come up and be on my show?'” Perino said. “What I didn’t know is that here at Fox, he had suggested that they might want to consider me as a contributor.”
Furthermore, Hannity backed Dana Perino despite the network not wanting another person from the Bush administration at the time. The Fox News host also supported her as she navigated the transition from talking to the media to giving her opinion.
“Sean said, ‘She’s different; let me try.'” Perino added “I was so terrible at the beginning, and shy, worried. I didn’t want to give my opinion… and to Sean’s credit, he kept up with it. He always had me back.”
Eventually, Perino would find her way as a contributor and land on The Five when the program launched.

Elizabeth Vargas: ‘There Will Be Many Questions’ About Trump in Latest Debate
“Right now they are running against Trump”
NewsNation host Elizabeth Vargas knows what she’ll focus on when co-moderating the fourth Republican presidential primary debate alongside SiriusXM’s Megyn Kelly, and the Washington Free Beacon’s Eliana Johnson.
For Vargas, her focus will be more on Trump, who has not participated in any of the events so far but continues to lead his competitors in the polls by a wide margin with the candidates at the debate.
“Right now they are running against Trump,” Vargas told the Los Angeles Times. “So there will be many questions about him.”
The event will be at the University of Alabama’s Frank Moody Music Building in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, on December 6. The candidates participating in the debate will be entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and Chris Christie, the former New Jersey governor.
Meanwhile, Trump will participate in a Fox News town hall on Tuesday with Sean Hannity rather than partake in the latest Republican primary debate.
