Fox newsman Brit Hume caught looking at ‘sexy vixen vinyl’ online

He puts the "X" in Fox.

Fox News anchor Brit Hume appears to have been started his Super Tuesday by viewing election odds, getting an update on the coronavirus and checking out kinky S&M costumes.

Shortly after 5:30 a.m., Hume tweeted what appeared to be a screenshot from his computer showing a graphic that predicts Fox News supporter Donald J. Trump would beat Democrats Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders in a presidential runoff.

In the background of Hume’s tweet appeared to be several open tabs indicating the 76-year-old conservative host had also began his day doing online banking, researching the COVID-19 virus and looking for “Sexy Vixen Vinyl.”

Hume quickly cropped the tweet so it would no longer show his seemingly kinky web search, but not before the Twitter feed Bad Fox Graphics grabbed a screen shot of the original tweet.

The internet exploded with mockery of the former ABC newsman, who spent more than 20 years on network news before making the leap to Rupert Murdoch’s right-wing cable channel.

Much of that criticism centered around Hume’s support of disgraced Fox News founder Roger Ailes, whose history of sexual misconduct has been the topic of a hit Hollywood film, a top-selling book and a cable series starring Russell Crowe.

Hume, also a devout Christian, said in a 2010 WTOP News radio interview that golfer Tiger Woods, whose career was sidetracked by a sex scandal, should seek guidance from Jesus Christ.

At 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, Hume tweeted an update on the 5:30 a.m. tweet about how Trump would fare against his Democratic rivals in an election. The cropped update did not give any clues to what may have been on Hume’s laptop at the time.
