In the midst of all the allegations of sexual harassment at Fox News, correspondent Ed Henry is coming back from “time off” after his steamy extra-marital affair with a Las Vegas hostess was revealed.
From my May 4 post:
According to InTouch, Henry, who is married to NPR’s deputy Washington editor Shirley Hung, had a steamy affair with “Las Vegas hostess Natalia Lima.” Apparently, she decided to cash in spill the beans to InTouch:
“Whenever he was in town, we would pretty much just have sex. He has a really high sex drive,” Natalia reveals in an exclusive interview, explaining that she met the 44-year-old broadcaster, who’s been crisscrossing the country covering the U.S. presidential campaign, five years ago through social media and they turned their friendship into a sexual relationship in the spring of 2015.
Interestingly, Henry’s time off coincided with former host Andrea Tantaros’ suspension. Tantaros, as you probably know, filed a bombshell lawsuit against Fox News last week. In it, she accused Fox host Bill O’Reilly, Fox contributor Scott Brown and correspondent John Roberts of harassment. Her complaint also alleged:
Fox News masquerades as defender of traditional family values, but behind the scenes, it operates like a sex-fueled, Playboy Mansion-like cult, steeped in intimidation, indecency, and misogyny.
According to The Hill, Henry is set to return to Fox tomorrow, after a four-month absence.
The Hill hears that Henry will return to the network this Monday. The 45-year-old will do general assignment reporting and will no longer be the network’s chief White House correspondent.
The Hill learned that Fox’s plan for Henry does not include any reporting on the presidential campaign or any political reporting in general.

Welcome back, Ed.
Horney Henry, Willy, Weiner..Well Weiner said it was over also…but dang…He just can’t stop!
Hypocrisy? A totally different story to this boy. ‘Let he who is without sin cast the first stone’ is one of my favourite Jesus zingers.
I think it was Tantaros who brought Ed into the conversation with sexual harassment charges. Evidence is emerging Tantaros is an unreliable witness. Both TVNewser and their founder have made compelling arguments her allegations against them are bunk.
I hope regulars here will recognize I’m not one to apologize for partisan Fox hacks like Henry. Calling it as I see it.
