Fox News executive suspended over lewd picture messages

  • Fox News host accused of sending lewd text

Sean Hannity also faced complaints last April from a former guest on his show, as reported by NBC News but that allegation was apparently not further pursued.

A Fox News spokesperson confirmed Saturday that Bolling's suspension is "pending the results of an investigation, which is now underway".

Charles Payne, a host at Fox Business Network, has been suspended since July 6 over sexual harassment allegations made against him.

The AM Joy host compared Eric Bolling, the conservative anchor at the embattled network, who's been suspended for allegedly sending unsolicited photos of his genitals to three female colleagues, to an infamous NY politician.

All of these cases have provoked uncomfortable questions about Fox's corporate culture and about whether management tolerated improper behavior for many years.

Bolling's attorney Michael J Bowe said the accusations were uncorroborated and untrue.

Fox News also confirmed Bolling's suspension to BuzzFeed News.

The unsolicited photo of male genitalia was sent to at least two colleagues at Fox Business and one colleague at Fox News, HuffPost reported, citing 14 sources. The cooperation will be provided in full for the investigation so that the judgment against him can be concluded in the fastest way possible.

As a result, Bolling's usual Saturday show on Fox Business, Cashin' In, was pulled from the programming slate this weekend. In June, Trump retweeted a Bolling plug for his latest book, The Swamp: Washington's Murky Pool of Corruption and Cronyism and How Trump Can Drain It.

However, a source from Fox News seems to debunk this claim by noting that Bolling's office is made up of glass. Late and former president Roger Ailes was forced out over sexual harassment claims last year, as was O'Reilly earlier this year. O'Reilly has denied any wrongdoing.

Fox's statement about Bolling on Saturday indicated that he may return once the investigation is complete.

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