Fox News and Eric Bolling Split After Sexting Accusations

Fox News has reportedly severed ties with former “Specialists” host Eric Bolling after several sources reported receiving inappropriate text messages from him, according to Huffington Post.

After Huffington Post revealed those accusations in August, Fox suspended Bolling, pending an internal investigation. Shortly after, Bolling defended himself on Twitter, writing that he looked forward to “clearing” his name:

Bolling even went so far as to file a $50 million against reporter Yashar Ali, who wrote Huffington Post’s original story, for defamation.

Michael J. Bowe, Bolling’s lawyer, said Bolling recalled no such communications:

“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.”

Fourteen anonymous sources told Huffington Post about Bolling’s allegedly lewd conduct:

Recipients of the photo confirmed its contents to HuffPost, which is not revealing their identities. The women, who are Bolling’s current and former Fox colleagues, concluded the message was from him because they recognized his number from previous work-related and informal interactions. The messages were sent several years ago, on separate occasions.

The women did not solicit the messages, which they told colleagues were deeply upsetting and offensive. One of the recipients said that when she replied to Bolling via text, telling him never to send her such photos again, he did not respond. Four people, outside of the recipients, confirmed to HuffPost they’d seen the photo, and eight others said the recipients had spoken to them about it.

For this story, HuffPost spoke to 14 sources in and out of Fox News and Fox Business, all of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity either because they currently work at the networks and aren’t allowed to speak to members of the press without prior authorization or because they have confidentiality agreements with Fox News and its parent company 21st Century Fox.

Bolling’s exit follows news from The Los Angeles Times that Fox Business host Charles Payne would return to his network after allegations that he sexually harassed a former on-air guest.
