Ed Henry Interview
The Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt has faced an unusually testy interview Wednesday with Fox News’s Ed Henry over one of the official’s most recent alleged ethical infractions.
The Atlantic had reported this week that the EPA used its authority under the Safe Drinking Water Act to give two of Pruitt’s closest aides big pay bumps after the White House refused to authorize raises.
Henry questioned Pruitt on why he bypassed the White House to raise $84,000 to two staffers whom they worked with him since he was attorney general of Oklahoma. Pruitt replied that he only found out about the salary decision Tuesday and didn’t know who made the decision.
“You don’t know? You run the agency. You don’t know who did this?” Henry asked.
“I found out about this yesterday, and I corrected the action,” Pruitt said.
It’s was a dramatic shift for a network that was once mostly safe territory for Pruitt, who has given more interviews to Fox than all major media networks combined. He has always found refuge in conservative media outlets and uses them to promote his deregulation agenda while ignoring the questions from other reporters (including this one). previously fox gave some little airtime to Pruitt’s alleged indiscretions compared to other networks.
Pruitt has been challenged on Fox News not once. as well Fox News’s Chris Wallace questioned him aggressively a year ago about the EPA’s rollbacks of regulations around climate change. As well the earlier this week, while the agency tried to stage a low-profile announcement on its highly controversial plan to revisit a major Obama-era environmental regulation on greenhouse gas emissions from cars, Fox tipped off other outlets about the event.

Ed Henry Mocks Pete Hegseth Over Trump’s July 4th Event: ‘I’m Sure’ You Would’ve Enjoyed Obama Doing Same
Fox & Friends featured a friendly but interesting discussion Friday morning that focused on President Donald Trump’s planned national address at the Lincoln Memorial on July 4th of this year.
Avid Trump supporter — and host of Fox & Friends Weekend — Pete Hegseth took the entirely predictable position that the Commander in Chief would simply be using the occasion in a purely patriotic and blaming Democrats for “playing partisanship with this.” In his esteem, the president “will not hold a political campaign” rather h”e will hold a rally for America.” Hegseth continued by adding “the problem with the left, they see President Trump, see partisanship.”
Ed Henry is also a Fox News host and regular co-host of Fox & Friends Weekend, but as a former White House correspondent he has news bona fides, and often fills in as guest anchor for Fox News news programming. Confused? Yeah, well so is everyone else paying close attention to the shifting line between news and opinion programming at FNC. But I digress!
Henry jovially pointed out that if it were former President Barack Obama doing the same national address the year before election bid, there may very well be a different reaction amongst those who have now become Trump loyalists, like Hegseth.
Henry cited his own past experience for July 4th celebrations held by the White House under the previous president and noted “Presidents don’t speak at this. They stay at the White House. They host military guests. That is a private thing.” He added that Trump’s planned address is a “break from departure,” which I gather was intended to mean that it is a departure from recent tradition.
Henry then added “bigger than that I would love to see Barack Obama announce that on July 4th, 2011, right before he was election run that he was going to speak at Lincoln memorial? I’m sure Pete would have taken that really well.”
Hegseth laughed at the suggested and offered “I would have loved it!”
Ed Henry and ‘Outnumbered’ break down 2020 Democratic presidential field
Fox News chief national correspondent Ed Henry broke down the format for the 2020 Democratic presidential debates Friday and said Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is the biggest beneficiary of the new setup.
“Elizabeth Warren, the headline here is night one — she has the stage almost to herself with a bunch of other seconds, third-tier folks,” Henry said on “Outnumbered.”
“To be fair to them, maybe one of them or more of them will have a big night. But Elizabeth Warren’s been rising in the polls because she’s got all these plans that the left loves … and she has a chance to become like a second front runner,” he continued.
Henry said Warren should be able to capitalize on the larger audience, and won’t have to compete with some of the other big-name candidates to steal the spotlight.
“Night one is when you’re going to have millions of people tuning in. There will still be a lot on night two, but no Joe Biden,” Henry said. “She has the stage to herself almost, to really stand out. Maybe she’ll fail. Maybe she won’t rise to the occasion. I think it’s a big, big opportunity for her.”
The first group of 10 candidates will debate June 26 in Miami and include: Warren, Sen. Cory Booker, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, former Rep. John Delaney, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, former housing secretary Julian Castro, Rep.Tim Ryan, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee.
The second group of 10 will debate the following day on June 27 and include: Sen. Kamala Harris, former Vice President Joe Biden, South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Sen. Michael Bennet, author Marion Williamson, Rep. Eric Swalwell, Andrew Yang and former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper. The candidates’ position on the stage has yet to be decided.
Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe said it’s unlikely the candidates were grouped together at random and claimed it could be geared toward ratings. She also said Buttigieg and Harris could make gains in the polls if they play their cards right.
“Night 2 you’ve got Biden, Sanders, Kamala Harris, and Pete Buttigieg, and we’re supposed to believe this is random? Most of these committees, you put your thumb on the scale a little bit. They’re going to want ratings,” Boothe said.
“They’re going to want people to tune in. I also think if you’re someone like Pete Buttigieg or a Kamala Harris — you want to be on the stage with Biden. That’s the stage where it’s at. He’s the frontrunner right now. Although his lead has been slipping in Iowa. But that’s where you want to be and if you’re someone like Pete Buttigieg, this is a moment to capitalize on for these lesser-known candidates with lesser-known name ID — this is your moment.”
Transplant specialist breaks down what Ed Henry can expect after liver donation to his sister
Liver specialist Dr. John Galati appeared with Ed Henry on “Fox & Friends” on Sunday to discuss Henry’s upcoming surgery to donate part of his liver to his ailing younger sister Colleen.
Galati met Henry through their mutual love of the New York Yankees on Instagram and said he was moved by Henry’s selflessness, and wanted to do anything he could to help. Galati works at Liver Specialists of Texas and attended St. George’s University School of Medicine. He also hosts Your Health First, a one-hour radio show on Clear Channel’s 740 AM KTRH every Sunday.
“As I announced a few moments ago, I will be donating part of my liver to my sister Colleen,” Henry said before turning it over to Galati.
“Well Ed, first I want to say, this is — your donation is probably the ultimate altruistic act of selflessness to help your sister,” he said. “I’m truly honored to be part of this discussion here with you here today and the transplant journey for your sister.”
Galati broke down what Henry could expect going into surgery and how he could best recover when he is post-op. He claimed science and technology have advanced to the point where transplants like this have been perfected and “refined.” He said Henry would wake up with tubes coming out of several parts of his body and will experience an erratic recovery.
“It is going to be a brisk recovery because you’re healthy and as you talked about earlier, you’ve really gotten tuned up. But I think the main thing is that during this recovery, you may wake up in a day or two and feel absolutely awesome, but then four days later, not feel so good,” he said.
“So for you, not only the recovery, you have to be able to deal with the ups and the downs and try to find a middle ground so that you have really good expectations, but it’s going to be a process of you to recover.”
Galati also told Henry to focus on his mental health, so he can more easily tell his body what to do, in order to facilitate a full recovery.
“You have to picture yourself that you’re going to get well first of all,” he said. “Your digestive tract is going to be a bit messed up. You’re going to have trouble with nausea and your bowels aren’t’ going to move but you have to force yourself to eat — to try to eat and take liquids … You’re going to be on your back for a day or so.”
The New York native also discussed Henry’s sister and said the longer she progresses without incident the better her prognosis, adding things will become clear on the first day, week and month of her post-operative care.
“The tough thing with her in all of our transplants — we break it down into the first 24 hours, the first week, the first month or so,” he said. “And there are all these different milestones to make sure there are no surgical complications immediately. We want to see that there are no problems with rejection, with Ed’s liver.”
Henry’s liver is expected to regenerate in four to six weeks and grow back to its full size if all goes well.
“The main thing is there’s going to be these highs and these lows. You have to find the middle ground,” Galati said. “Now the other thing which is different, you’re going to be tied up in a sense, recovering yourself, a couple of doors down is your sister. And so you’re going to be getting second-hand information. How is she doing? What’s happening? And you’re going to feel very insecure that you cannot go visit, and that’s really what you want to do. So you have to deal with the emotion of her getting better and her own recovery.”
Henry said his faith in God and the love and support of his family, friends, and co-workers have given him the strength and courage to persevere ahead of Tuesday’s surgery.
“But you know, the amazing thing is through God’s grace I can help, and I’m going to help. And she’s going to be great, as so will I, and Fox has been absolutely amazing,” Henry said earlier in the program.
He also wrote an op-ed for FoxNews.com, about his decision help, detailing the close relationship he has with his baby sister.
“I was praying to God for the strength to get me across the finish line. But as with any mission like this, I could not do it alone. My wife Shirley has been a rock, and my two children have shown courage far beyond their years all because they want to see their aunt get healthy, while our parents have always been such loving role models for Collen and me,” Henry wrote.
“My sister is humble, never wants to be a burden, and always tries to shoulder as much as she can on her own. So we both cried as I tried to tell her to sit back and let me take care of her this one time,” he continued.
Henry closed by mentioning a text his sister sent him when he asked if he could share the news publicly on-air.
“As for Colleen, she was a little hesitant at first about me sharing the story on Fox News. But then she texted that while she wanted to hold back on speaking publicly herself for now so that she can rightly focus on the surgery ahead, she wanted me to talk about it,” he wrote.
“‘It is truly a heartwarming story about the love & bond between a brother & sister,'” she texted him.
“And here I thought I was the talented writer in the family. Yet again, my sister blew me away with her ability to rise to the occasion at a trying time, and she reminded me exactly why I am willing to do whatever is humanly possible to make her feel even a little bit better,” Henry concluded.
A GoFundMe page has been taking donations to support Colleen Henry’s recovery.

Ed Henry update on liver transplant recovery
FOX News Chief National Correspondent Ed Henry is now recovering after donating part of his liver to his sister.
‘Through God’s Grace’: Fox News, Ed Henry Breaks Down In Tears After Revealing He’s Donating Liver to His Sister
Ed Henry, the chief national correspondent for Fox News, revealed over the weekend he is donating about 30 percent of his liver to his ailing younger sister Colleen.
During an interview Sunday on “Fox & Friends,” Henry broke down in tears when he announced he is going under the knife Tuesday to make the donation to his sibling, a decision month in the making.
He spoke emotionally about it again Monday during an appearance on anchor Dana Perino’s midday show, “The Daily Briefing.”
Holding back tears, Henry told Perino he has been “blown away” by the number of people who have not only extended their support to him and his sister but have shared how the Fox News correspondent’s selfless deed has inspired them to care for their own family members.
“What’s most amazing to me is people are saying I’m being selfless,” he said. “I thought I was being selfish because I wanna help my sister. Instead, I’m hearing people say, ‘You’re gonna help other people.’”
He also thanked Fox News’ “amazing” fans for their support.
Henry first shared the news of his decision in a column published Sunday on the Fox News website. In it, he wrote he is “determined to do whatever I can to give my sister the greatest gift of all, which quite simply is life.”
Unlike most of the body’s organs, the liver is capable of regeneration. Henry has been told that, within four to six weeks, both his liver and the portion he is donating to his little sister will regenerate to full size.
“Colleen and I could each have our own healthy livers — from one liver — in just over a month,” he wrote. “It is nothing short of a medical marvel, and yet doctors in this great country called America to perform these miracles pretty frequently.”
Henry’s surgery is expected to last around six hours. In the operating room next door, Colleen will then undergo between eight and 10 hours of surgery to entirely remove her diseased liver and replace it with the portion being donated by her big brother.
The two siblings will have the procedures at a hospital somewhere in the northeast.
Sharing a mutual affection for the New York Yankees, liver transplant specialist Dr. John Galanti met Henry over social media. Moved by the correspondent’s decision, he appeared Sunday on “Fox & Friends” alongside Henry.
“Well Ed, first I want to say, this is — your donation is probably the ultimate altruistic act of selflessness to help your sister,” the doctor said. “I’m truly honored to be part of this discussion here with you here today and the transplant journey for your sister.”
Galanti told Henry the recovery will be “brisk” because he is in good physical condition but warned him it will be important to work overtime to manage the ups and downs of recovering from invasive surgery.
As for Colleen, the surgeon said everything will be broken down to milestones, explaining doctors will be evaluating her in the first 24 hours, after the first week, then after the first month, and so on.
Henry said his faith in God, along with with the love and support of his wife, Shirley, and the rest of his family has given him the strength he needs to endure this massive undertaking.
“But you know, the amazing thing is, through God’s grace, I can help, and I’m going to help,” he said earlier in the show. “And she’s going to be great, as so will I, and Fox has been absolutely amazing.”
Describing his sister as “humble” and his wife as his “rock,” Henry is eager to step up to the plate for his family.
Colleen hasn’t spoken publicly about the upcoming procedure, but in a text to Henry, she wrote, “It is truly a heartwarming story about the love [and] bond between a brother [and] sister.”
Fox News’ Ed Henry opens up about donating part of his liver to his sister
On July 7, Fox News chief national correspondent Ed Henry underwent surgery to donate a part of his liver to his sister, Colleen, who had congenital liver disease. Nearly a month later, they’re both fine, and on the mend. The surgery was unusual, albeit increasingly less so, and Henry’s decision to publicize it was as well, by announcing the transplant to Fox viewers a few hours before he went under the knife.
Henry, 47, now lives outside Washington, D.C., but grew up in Deer Park and went to St. John the Baptist Diocesan High School in West Islip — “my mom dragged me by my ear to Catholic school because I was a cut-up and thought I needed to see the nuns,” he said in a recent interview — while his sister lives in Franklin Square. The surgery, called living donor transplant, is possible because the liver is the body’s only organ that can fully regenerate itself. Henry donated about 30 percent of his to his sister, who was released from the hospital Wednesday.
According to the United Network for Organ Sharing, there were about 14,000 people on the waiting list for a liver transplant in August 2018, while according to other organizations, about 1,700 people die each year waiting to receive a liver. The UNOS says 367 living donor transplants took place in 2017.
Henry and I spoke earlier this week. An edited version of the interview:
First off, how are you doing?
Yesterday [July 28] was the three-week anniversary of the surgery so I celebrated playing nine holes of golf.
What was your primary motivation in doing this surgery?
I was motivated by my love for my sister. She had been on the transplant list for just over a year, and that’s the kind of deal where they can call you tomorrow, or the call may never come, and the prospect of my sister dying waiting on that list was something I couldn’t possibly imagine, so I ultimately raised my hand, without my sister knowing.
Where was your surgery performed?
Mount Sinai [Hospital] on the Upper East Side … You have to go through a rigorous set of tests and in this case, to see if your liver is healthy enough to share [and] the big thing was to lose ten to fifteen pounds to make sure the fat level is good enough So that was my mission over the course of a few months, and I then crossed the threshold in June. Fat levels [were] down and they wanted to schedule the surgery. It was then that I called my sister.
She didn’t know until June?
There is any number of issues that could have come up [during pre-screening]. They could have found something routine, and a lot of things could have knocked me out of the early stages, so it was all done in secret. Mount Sinai assigned me my own team of doctors separate from my sister’s. I did initially call her doctor — I was sort of being a reporter — but her assistant said you can’t talk to her because of privacy laws, and you have to talk to another team. So that was all part of the secret
What type of liver disease did she have and what was her prognosis?
She had a form of cirrhosis — non-alcohol-related — but on my mother’s side, there are some hereditary issues. She was tired — one of the symptoms is that you feel beaten down — and over time it gets worse and worse. A year and a half ago they suggested she get on the transplant list. I never knew how much time she had, but there’s something called a liver MELD [model for end-stage liver disease] score, and if your score is in the 30s you’re in desperate shape and she was in the 20s.
Why don’t more people opt for live transplants over liver donors? Is the cost-prohibitive?
It’s simply an education issue … I went into this because I wanted to save my sister who I love. But if as a result public awareness rises and we can help more people then I’m all in and my sister’s all in.
Do most people even know the liver regenerates?
I would say 95 percent of the time I’ve told someone about this, and 95 percent of the time they had no idea … I really didn’t know.
When will you be back at work?
That’s still TBD. I got clearance from my doctors, but [his lead surgeon] says not to rush back. I’ll take the summer off, and I’m taking my son to college, and we’ll revisit afterward.
How’s Colleen doing?
We know her recovery will be longer than mine, so it’s one day at a time, but she’s already made good steady progress. The doctors say she has a normal liver function — not perfect yet [because] it takes four to six weeks, but basically the normal liver function she didn’t have. So in that respect, we’re just elated. By the end of summer, I should have a fully regenerated liver. The caveat is that the recipient starts out in worse health, but by the end of summer, we both will have regenerated livers from the piece I donated to her.
