FOX FIRES ED HENRY AFTER SEXUAL MISCONDUCT PROBE
NEW YORK (AP) – Fox News isn’t disclosing the nature of the sexual misconduct allegations against daytime news anchor Ed Henry. But whatever it is, the network feels it’s serious enough to cost him his gig. Fox says it got a complaint a week ago from an attorney about Henry’s alleged misconduct. It hired an outside investigator, which provided information Fox says led them to let Henry go. A lawyer for Henry denies the allegations and says his client is confident he’ll be cleared if there’s a “full hearing in an appropriate forum.” Henry co-anchored “America’s Newsroom.”
APPEALS COURT GREEN-LIGHTS PUBLICATION OF BOOK BY TRUMP NIECE
NEW YORK (AP) – A ruling by a New York appeals court yesterday really puts the “temporary” in a temporary restraining order imposed the day before – in connection with a book written by President Donald Trump’s niece. New York’s Supreme Court’s Appellate Division lifted the ban on Mary Trump’s tell-all. The order was issued against Simon & Schuster. However, the appeals court ruled the publisher can’t be bound by such an order. The president and his brother Robert claim Mary Trump signed a deal to keep family secrets. But the appeals ruling says courts aren’t required to enforce such confidentiality agreements. The book is titled “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.” It’s due out July 28.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP THINKS HE LOOKS LIKE “THE LONE RANGER” IN MASK
WASHINGTON (AP) – He has apparently tried it – and likes it. After resisting being seen in public wearing a face mask, President Donald Trump is now suggesting he’d wear one in public – and says he looks good wearing one. The president told Fox Business yesterday he thinks wearing his black mask makes him look like the Lone Ranger. In a surprising reversal on his previous anti-mask stance, Trump told Fox, “I’m all for masks. I think masks are good.” His comments come a day after Republican lawmakers criticized Trump for downing mask-wearing – and suggested he wear one in public to set a good example for the country.
