Fox suspends TV host for sending lewd messages

Adjust Comment Print

Another high-profile Fox News employee, Charles Payne of Fox Business Network, was suspended in July following harassment claims. Last year, then-Fox News head Roger Ailes resigned in the wake of a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against him by former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson.

She said he called her and sent texts after some of her appearances to apologize for his behavior or talk; asked her to fly to NY for "in-studio hits and to have 'fun, '" and tried several times unsuccessfully to convince her to have meals with him. "Thank you", Bolling tweeted Monday.

Before getting a spot on "Fox News Specialists", Bolling was a co-host on the popular evening program, "The Five".

When the initial reports surfaced, Bolling said, through an attorney, he recalled "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". Unfortunately for "The Fox News Specialists" co-host, HuffPost's scoop seems to be just the start. She also alleged that Bolling told her he wanted to fly her out to NY for "in-studio hits and to have 'fun'".

Bolling's attorney said "the anonymous, uncorroborated claims are untrue and terribly unfair". Once, he took me up to his office in NY, showed me his baseball jerseys, and in the brief time I was there, let me know that his office was his favorite place to have sex.

"There are a lot of great people working at Fox, many of whom I admire and respect to this day, but there is also a culture of sexual harassment that has not fully been addressed", said Ms. Heldman.

"Make-up artists at Fox are contract workers, so many are fearful of speaking up because they simply won't be hired again", Heldman said.

Remarkably, Bolling is not the only Fox host that is sitting on the proverbial bench right now. Eastern time. A source familiar with the matter told HuffPost that a rotating group of hosts will fill in for Bolling.

The show Bolling typically hosts on Saturdays, "Cashin' In", did not air.

Bolling, who now co-hosts "The Fox News Specialists", was pulled off his former show, "The Five", earlier this year when it moved to primetime because network executives wanted a familiar face in the 5 p.m. ET time slot. Fox decided late Friday to yank the taped show from its schedule. "His insight is valued and we are pleased to have him at the network for many more years to come".
