While the National Enquirer is now dishing on titillating details of an alleged affair by Ed Henry, the Fox News reporter has bigger worries — as in a statement from boss Roger Ailes.

Fox News announced last week that their chief White House correspondent would be “taking some time off to work things out” after a story broke that he was involved in an extra-marital affair with a Las Vegas women — Henry is married to NPR’s deputy Washington editor Shirley Hung.

Following reports from the Enquirer alleging private lap dances, crotch photos and salacious texts, Ailes provided The Washington Post with a statement that will not be mistaken for a vote of confidence.

“This raises serious questions about Ed’s lack of judgement, especially given his position as a journalist,” the Fox News Chairman said, according to the newspaper.

That Ailes has weighed in here should speak volumes, given that he remains mum over the mysterious absence of Fox News political analyst Andrea Tantaros. Two weeks ago, the network “determined it best that she take some time off” after contract issues arose.

Henry has been working the coveted Hillary Clinton presidential run, but don’t look for him to be back on the campaign trail anytime soon.
