EXCLUSIVE INSIGHT: Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Fox News’ Tucker Carlson & Sean Hannity

2 women have filed a lawsuit accusing recently fired Fox News chief national correspondent Ed Henry of rape and other sexual misconduct. Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and others are also listed on the complaint.

Co-plaintiff, Jennifer Eckart, past associate producer for Fox News, claims she was raped and experienced other forms of sexual misconduct from Henry.

Earlier this month, Henry was fired after a network investigation of a complaint of “willful sexual misconduct in the workplace”.

The complaint states, “On July 1, 2020, Fox News disclosed to the public that it had terminated Mr. Henry based on findings of an internal investigation and purported to take credit for acting appropriately. However, nothing could be further from the truth. In reality, Fox News knew that Mr. Henry had engaged in sexual misconduct as far back as early 2017. At that time, when Fox News was conducting a company-wide investigation into issues of sexual harassment, multiple women came forward to complain that Mr. Henry had engaged in sexually inappropriate conduct towards them.”

Other Fox News employees Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Howard Kurtz, and Gianno Caldwell are listed on the complaint and lawsuit for sexual misconduct as well.

The following statement is from Fox News:

“Based on the findings of a comprehensive independent investigation conducted by an outside law firm, including interviews with numerous eyewitnesses, we have determined that all of Cathy Areu’s claims against Fox News, including it’s management as well as its hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Howard Kurtz, and it’s contributor Gianno Caldwell are false, patently frivolous and utterly devoid of any merit.”

The statement also said that the two women filing the suit should take their claims directly to Mr. Henry as he is no longer employed at the network and they already took appropriate action against him.

Mr. Henry’s lawyer also produced a statement on his behalf noting the #metoo movement and that Ms. Eckart was the one to start the agreed relationship.

In the suit, Areu claims that once Hannity slapped a 100 dollar bill on his desk and said to the men in the room “who wants to take her on a date?” She said she begged for one of her friends in the room to accept the offer to end her embarrassment. She also said that Hannity’s misogynistic behavior made her very uncomfortable.

Areu insists that Carlson approached her about her interest in a sexual relationship with him and also said that Kurtz followed her to a hotel room once. But, as stated above, Fox News denies these claims following an investigation with witnesses to corroborate Carlson, Hannity, Kurtz, and Caldwell’s innocence.
