Fox News Anchor Gregg Jarrett Appears to Have Been Wasted (Drunk) on his Sunday News Show – Watch the Video and Decide!

UPDATE: Apparently Gregg Jarrett lied to me about his drinking when he called to discuss this post. Click here for details.

I have to admit I enjoy watching Gregg Jarrett’s program and I think he’s a great reporter/host. But I also have to admit that it definitely looks and sounds like he may have hit the sauce a little too hard before going on the air a couple weeks back.

Story continues below

The first video shows Jarrett seemingly hammered and attempting to anchor his show. The second video shows Jarrett at his usual best… sober.

What say you?

NEW UPDATE MAY 22, 2014: The Associated Press is reporting Gregg Jarrett was arrested for refusing to cooperate with police. He was reportedly under the influence of alcohol.

EDIT: I’ve spoken with Gregg Jarrett by phone and he claims he was not at all inebriated.

EDIT 2: I’ve spoken with Gregg Jarrett by phone and it’s now very clear he was not at all inebriated. I’m leaving this page intact in case anyone stumbles across the story via a search engine so that anyone coming here knows the truth of the story.

I now believe, without question, Jarrett would never go on air under the influence. He’s a wonderful individual and was very pleasant to have conversations with. While I will not go in to details as to why Jarrett was slightly off his game the day of this particular broadcast, I’m 100% confident it had nothing to do with alcohol or any other substance.

I apologize if I gave the impression there was reason to believe Jarrett was under the influence during this broadcast. While the initial video did leave room to ponder his situation, I did not assert or allege anything and probably should have been more clear that I had no evidence outside the video itself.

I’ve removed the content of the original post out of respect for the truth and the integrity of Jarrett.
