Jennifer Griffin Takes Over Ed Henry’s Old Job of Covering Clinton Campaign for Fox

griffinIs Ed Henry out at Fox?

Fox News announced today that national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin will be covering the Hillary Clinton campaign for the network, taking over the role previously filled by Henry.

In a press release, Fox said that Griffin will be joining chief congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel, who has been covering the Clinton campaign for the last month.

Now, Henry has been off the air at Fox after allegations of an affair bubbled up and In Touch obtained alleged text messages between him and a mistress. Fox issued a statement at the time saying, “We recently became aware of Ed’s personal issues and he’s taking some time off to work things out.”

And then last month, Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes himself issued a statement about the affair, saying, “This raises serious questions about Ed’s lack of judgment, especially given his position as a journalist.”

Henry’s status at Fox is currently up in the air, and it’s unclear whether Griffin’s new position means he’s out for good.

Fox said today Griffin will return to her regular beat at the Pentagon after the election’s over.
