Hmmm... I'm going to go with "retaliation by former employee". Not bothering with the article... I just don't see it having any credence.
tolerance for failure meter... LOW

I agree. IF the charges prove false the accuser should be thrown in jail for trying to ruin this guys life. Even if the charges are thrown out this will effect the man the rest of his life.

Apparently it was an ex-girlfriend he had a kid with. She claims he's molesting their daughter.

Viewership is down. Well timed scandal to stir interest.

Well played.

I have, for more than a decade, worked with and advocated for survivors of sexual abuse and exploitation by Catholic clergy. Some things to keep in mind based on my experience:

1) Abusers are often quite popular and charming. It helps them gain access to victims and keep their credibility (oh, he'd never do a thing like that!
2) Abusers are very good at intimidating children and sometimes even their parents, to be silent
3) Abusers don't usually seem any different than anyone else; they don't walk around near playgrounds with their zippers down, etc.
4) Abusers with some celebrity often use that power disparity to convince their victims that they are powerless to do anything about it (think Michael Jackson... if you can stand to). "It's your word against mine; who do you think they'll believe?"

Don't fall into the trap of saying "He'd never do that" based on thinking you know him from TV. It may be that he would never do that. Or it may be that that is exactly what he is counting on you to think, because you think you "know" him from TV.

Police generally don't make this kind of arrest just on the word of one individual, absent some kind of other evidence and (usually) a grand jury indictment.

All that said, an accusation of sexual abuse is unfortunately one way in which custodial mothers occasionally attempt to manipulate fathers of their children to pay child support without any visitation privileges. To this end, they sometimes "coach" the children to say certain things. Fortunately, this kind of gambit usually breaks down once the child is interviewed by a competent psychologist with expertise in the area.

We can only wait and see.

The key thing is not to re-victimize the victim by ascribing ulterior motives to her based on people whom you really don't know.

There are cases where there is such a thing as bad publicity. I cannot imagine that he would agree to being accused of this crime just to boost ratings.

It seems not
Quote:FOX411 reached out to the Discovery Channel who had no comment except to say that Hayden’s reality show is currently not on the air.

I watched the show for a few years but Hayden is such a dick and his son in law such a drama queen, I stopped watching.
