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 second, 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.”
