Fox News Channel CEO Roger Ailes is the latest to weigh in .
Kennedy has worked at Fox News as a reporter. Prior to that, he worked for The New York Post, which is a sister media outlet to Fox. Both are owned by News Corp.
Below is Ailes' statement in defense of Douglas Kennedy, which was provided by family spokesman Stefan Friedman:
"I have known Douglas Kennedy, his wife and his family professionally and personally for over 15 years. He tells the truth and his calm and gentle demeanor always impressed me. He is the definition of a great father and it is a role he cherishes over all others. I support Douglas as do the independent eyewitness accounts of the event. It is unfortunate that what appears to be a father's defensive maneuver to protect his newborn baby has been twisted because of his famous name. In my view, the real moral of this story should be don't try to grab a baby from the arms of a loving father."
