Fox News' Eric Bolling Suspended for Sexual Harassment Investigation

Posted August 07, 2017

The network's founding leader Roger Ailes resigned in July 2016 because of harassment allegations.

As a result of the story, though, Fox News launched an investigation into the matter. It's widely reported that unnamed sources have confirmed the pictures, and all recipients of the texts wish to remain anonymous.

Fox News said that an investigation 'is now underway, ' with attorney Paul Weiss leading the proceedings.

According to The Huffington Post, a dozen sources came forward to allege that Bolling had sent the messages to at least three different colleagues from his Fox Business and Fox News work over the years.

He was one of Fox News' earliest and most vocal supporters and an original co-host of "The Five", before moving up the ranks. Bolling also won't appear on his weekend financial show "Cashin' In".

Bolling's appearance for Saturday's Cashin In' was taped Friday morning, but was pulled later that night once the network was made aware of the Huff Post inquiry and story.

Is there anyone at Fox News other than Shep Smith who is not sexually harassing women?

His lawyer denied the allegations to the news website, saying Bolling didn't send such messages.

When a former NY congressman was accused of sending lewd texts to multiple women in May, Bolling said: "He is a sick human being, to continue to do this time and time again, continue to get caught, saying he's not going to do it again, gets caught again". He now serves as co-host of the evening talk show "The Five".

As for Bolling, he has plenty of defenders who say this is but a ploy by the left to shut down conservative, pro-Trump voices.

Bolling is a co-host on the Fox News show "The Specialists" and has made some eyebrow-raising comments about women before. He is the author of a book titled "The Swamp", which earned a supportive retweet from President Trump when it was released.

His Fox contract was extended in June, ending rumours that he would join the Trump administration as commerce secretary or as a senior adviser. Thus, with its unobstructed view, everyone can see what is going on inside.
