Fox News Host Eric Bolling Suspended After Lewd Photo Accusation

By Published August 07, 2017

The sexual accusation in the hierarchy of Fox News network that have seen the right wing news media lose high profile personalities including former host Bill O'Reilly and former CEO Roger Ailes is not abating as Long-time News host Eric Bolling has been suspended amid allegations that he texted a lewd photo to multiple female colleagues in years past.

A Fox News spokesperson confirmed Saturday that his suspension is "pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway."

Law firm Paul Weiss, which has investigated complaints lodged against other high-profile network employees, is conducting the investigation, the spokesperson said.

The suspension comes a day after media reported that Bolling sent unsolicited photo of male genitalia to at least two colleagues at Fox Business and one colleague at Fox News.

Bolling lawyer Michael Bowe, described the claims as “anonymous, uncorroborated, untrue and terribly unfair’’.

“We intend to fully cooperate with the investigation so that it can be concluded and Eric can return to work as quickly as possible.”

Bolling co-host nightly Fox News program "The Specialists," and is one of the most vocal defenders of President Donald Trump on the network. His contract was recently renewed, and in a statement in June, Fox News president of programming Suzanne Scott said Bolling's "insight is valued, and we are pleased to have him at the network for many more years to come."

Last month, Fox Business Network suspended another host Charles Payne following an allegation of "professional misconduct" by a female political analyst who claimed she was coerced into a sexual relationship under the threat of reprisals. He tweeted that it was an "ugly lie I vehemently deny to my core."
