Lawsuit Against Fox News Hosts Alleges Rape and Sexual Harassment

In a federal lawsuit filed Monday, a former reporter and associate producer at Fox News claims that former America’s Newsroom host Ed Henry—who was fired from the troubled network this month for what Fox reps called “willful sexual misconduct”—brutally raped her in a series of attacks. The former employee, Jennifer Eckhart, as well as frequent Fox guest journalist Cathy Areu, also say that hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Howard Kurtz subjected them to sexual harassment.

Eckhart claims that Henry raped and assaulted her and “performed sadistic acts on her without her consent that left her injured, bruised and battered with bloody wrists” after raping and taking photos of her while she was in handcuffs. The filing includes texts from Henry to Eckhart that her lawyers say are evidence that the anchor, a married man 20 years older than Eckhart, abused her as a non-consensual “sex slave” afraid of losing her job.

One 10 a.m. series of texts from Henry to Eckhart allegedly reads, “Bite your tongue,” and “You know who your Daddy is. Good long session last time. Left you bruised, batter, dazed, sated begging for more. #Perfect.” In another message, Henry is accused of writing, “Fuck you and your safe word. You will know when I’m done.” In yet another missive, Henry appears to tell Eckhart, “When u r owned, you don’t get a ‘choice.’”
