Fox News host Eric Bolling reportedly sent unsolicited and explicit photos to colleagues

"Fox News Specialists" host Eric Bolling sent unsolicited photos of male genitalia several years ago to at least two colleagues at Fox Business Network and at least one colleague at Fox News, according to a HuffPost report citing a dozen sources. 

The women are either current or previous Fox employees who, when they received the messages, told colleagues they were very "upsetting" and "offensive." One woman said that when she replied to Bolling's text and told him never to send her photos like that again, he didn't reply back. 

When HuffPost contacted Fox on Friday, a spokesperson told the outlet, "We were just informed of this and plan to investigate the matter."

When he was asked whether Bolling had ever sent any unsolicited or inappropriate messages to his colleagues at either Fox News or Fox Business, his attorney Michael J. Bowe replied, "Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications, and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made."

Before getting a spot on "Fox News Specialists," Bolling was a co-host on the popular evening program, "The Five." He is an avid defender of President Donald Trump and has frequently drawn praise from the president. 

Fox News' parent company, 21st Century Fox, has seen a stream of high-profile departures and scandals over the last year in the wake of a number of sexual harassment scandals.

It started last summer, when former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, now deceased, was forced to resign when then host Gretchen Carlson accused him of unwanted sexual advances. Carlson subsequently left the network.

In April, primetime star Bill O'Reilly was forced to tender his resignation as well, following an exodus of advertisers that came on the heels of an explosive report saying O'Reilly and Fox News had paid out $13 million to five women to settle sexual-harassment claims they had brought against him.  Multiple other women also accused O'Reilly of sexual harassment after the initial revelations.

Primetime commentator Megyn Kelly also left Fox News this year, reportedly partially because she was upset by O'Reilly's criticism of her for publicly commenting on the sexual harassment she faced at Fox News, The New York Times reported in April. 

Kelly talked about having been sexually harassed by Ailes in her book, which O'Reilly criticized her for in November. During an appearance on "CBS This Morning," O'Reilly shot back at Kelly's remarks and said, "Look, it's open season. Let's whack the Fox News Channel. I've had enough of it. It's a good place to work, all right?"

In July, Jamie Horowitz, then the president of Fox Sports, was also fired amid an ongoing sexual harassment probe into his actions when he spearheaded the network.

I have trouble believing that there is a woman out there that wants a dick pic blowing up her phone.  They want to be wined and dined.

It's not the women, you are right they don't want those kinds of pic's. It's men that still haven't got the message.

Why isn't anyone jumping for joy? Is it because it's not one of yours?

Pretend it was like Booker or Biden or I know, how about Keith Olberman ?

That would make this a good thread.

Maybe he did and maybe he didn't.  Rush to judgment?  Bet you thought the Marines at Haditha were guilty too.  I'll wait for the fallout, one way or the other.  If he did, good bye and hope he gets arrested.  If he didn't or there is no proof, I'll wait and see if anyone apologizes to him.  (Who said when found innocent: "Where do I go to get my reputation back?")

As to Olberman, he's been tossed out of a lot of places.  He is a loudmouth and a coward.  Typical lib.

Bolling is the dimmest bulb currently on Fox's payroll, more so than Hannity which is no small accomplishment.

I'm going with this being 100% true until proven otherwise.

Wonder if the woman in question was Guilfoyle?

That would've make for an awkward next day at work.

Love the Leakers when they leak against your opponent (WikiLeaks)

Hate the Leakers when they leak against you!

 

But the Truth always comes out and the Truth always Wins.

 

Would you have preferred to have a foreign spy as the WH N.S.A? 

Would you have preferred if Nixon was not impeached?
