Fox Business Network anchor Charles Payne has been suspended pending an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment.
A female analyst who had appeared on Fox News and CNN is alleging that she was blackballed from Fox after ending an affair with Payne, the Los Angeles Times reports. She also claims to have been coerced into a sexual relationship, and 20th Century Fox is investigating her allegations while other anchors fill in on Payne's show "Making Money."
HuffPost writer Yashar Ali reported that the woman in question was Scottie Nell Hughes, a pro-Trump commentator who also appeared frequently on CNN during the 2016 election cycle.

Suspended Fox Business Network host says he’s fighting back

 

NEW YORK (AP) — A suspended Fox Business Network host says he will fight reported charges of sexual harassment “like a lion armed with truth.”
Charles Payne, host of the network’s “Making Money” show, defended himself on Twitter on Friday. The network didn’t say why he was suspended. But the Los Angeles Times, citing two anonymous sources, reported that Payne had been accused of harassment by a female political analyst who appeared on the network.
Payne called the charges an ugly lie that he denies to his core. He said there is a mountain of proof that he’s being falsely accused, in a Twitter post that includes the hashtag fightingback.
A series of harassment claims has shadowed the media giant, including sister network Fox News Channel.:snip:
