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.

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.

    Oh yeah. He’s loopy on alcohol or something else.

    • Lara girl

      Something was definitely not right with Gregg today!

  • Rob

    Looks and sounds under the influence right now on live 5pm newscast on 4/12.

    • Patrick Terrell

      I was just thinking the same thing.

  • Ron

    He was definitely under the influence of something…slurring, stumbling over his words etc…they took him out of the mix toward the end of the segment as well…
    Hope he’s OK….
    Good luck Gregg

  • Ron

    In our next segment we’ll discuss the new craze…snorting whiskey…..

    • Tony Palmer

      and drinkin cocaine!

  • Adam Reynolds

    Considering he was just jailed for being intoxicated in the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport, I’d bet this man was indeed drunk on-air and more.

    Based on the numerous instances of his apparent drunkenness on air, his sabbatical for “personal reasons,” and his arrest tonight, drunk and disheveled at the MSP airport, it appears he has a real problem. I wish him and his family the best and hope he’s able to work through his problems through therapy and treatment.

    He just got arrested for being intoxicated at the MSP airport and disorderly conduct.

    “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.”

    You might want to scrub that line. With his recent arrest, leaving this up just shows your lack of judgement.

  • Tony Palmer

    Oops. Arrested at the airport in Minneapolis for being wasted and belligerent. I think Eric Odom needs to reevaluate his investigative skill set.

    • Michael T

      Co-sign.

  • Tony Palmer

    And this was the guy that said smoking pot can make you violent.

  • Tony Palmer

    Alcoholism is prevalent in my family. Believe he this guy has a problem. Here’s hoping he addresses it and gets better.

  • muffin58

    Perhaps the man is diabetic? He looks exactly like my father did when his sugar was way too low.

    • Michael T

      Of course if the reports are true about Gregg having three Gabapentin prescription pills in his possession, we cannot rule out epilepsy or bipolar disorder.

      Whatever it is the outpouring of empathy — even by many who lean left — is good to see.
