Fox News Eric Bolling Accused Of Sending Lewd Texts To Female Co Workers

 

In a new scandal for the embattled Fox News channel, The Specialists host Eric Bolling has been accused of sending an unsolicited photo of male genitalia to at least three female co-workers years ago via text message, according to a report by the Huffington Post.

But Bolling’s attorney Michael Bowe staunchly denied the allegations in a statement to Breitbart News, saying, “The story is based on anonymous sources and not true. No such unsolicited communications occurred.”

The Huffington Post web site said it had 14 sources, all of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity, who claimed that Bolling’s two female colleagues at Fox Business and one at Fox News received the naughty message from Bolling.

According to the Huffington Post, the women who received the photos decided they were from Bolling, who previously starred on Fox News’ The Five, because they recognized his phone number from other correspondence.

One of the women allegedly texted Bolling, 54, and told him to stop sending her such photos, the Huffington Post article said.

According to the story, “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.”

A Fox News spokesperson told USA Today, about “We were just informed of this late Friday afternoon via a Huffington Post inquiry and plan to investigate the matter.”

But Bolling’s attorney told HuffPo, “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.”

As Radar has reported, this is the latest in a series of allegation against a Fox News employee.

Fox News found Roger Ailes came under fire when former anchor Gretchen Carlson sued him, saying he’d sexually harassed her. That suit was settled out of court — but prompted a flurry of new allegations against Ailes. He resigned in disgrace in July 2016 and died on May 18, 2017, at age 77.

Also, Bill O’Reilly, 67, host of the then highest-rated cable news show, The O’Reilly Factor host, was hit with a sexual harassment scandal.

O’Reilly was ousted from the network in April after it was revealed FOX had paid nearly $13 million to women who had accused him of sexual harassment over the years.

 

Fox News conservative firebrand Sean Hannity fought back against blogger Debbie Schlussel‘s allegations that the host, 55, had invited her to his hotel room after he made an appearance in Detroit. She claimed when she declined the offer, Hannity blacklisted her from his show. But Schlussel later backed away from her claims after Hannity staunchly denied it and fought back, threatening legal action.

Earlier this year, Fox’s parent company, 21st Century Fox, reportedly reached a $2.5 million settlement with former Fox News contributor Tamara Holder, who says she was sexually assaulted by Francisco Cortes, the vice president of Fox News Latino. He was later fired from the network.

And as Radar readers know, Fox News has denied claims that they banned host Diana Falzone from the network due to her infertility reveal after she filed a gender discrimination lawsuit.

Also, former Fox News personality Andrea Tantaros is suing Irena Briganti, the Senior Vice President at the network, for allegedly orchestrating a plot to force former colleague Nomiki Konst to send a negative tweet about Tantaros, in order to draw attention away from her upcoming sexual harassment lawsuit.

And Fox Business host Charles Payne was recently suspended from the network amid sexual harassment claims.

NFL’s Malcolm Jenkins: Kaepernick Invited to Owners’ Meeting, Didn’t Show (UPDATE)

 

 

1:08 PM PT — Kaepernick’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, says his client was NOT officially invited to the meeting by team or league officials, but is “open to future participation on these important discussions.”

Colin Kaepernick was invited to NFL headquarters to talk about social issues with team owners … but decided not to show up to the meeting, Malcolm Jenkins told the media on Tuesday.

Several players sat down with owners in Manhattan today to discuss ways to promote positive change … and both sides agreed it was a step in the right direction, but there’s more work to do.

“Those conversations will continue. That dialogue will continue,” Jenkins said.

“As players, we’ll continue to do the work in our communities. We feel like that’s the most American thing to do is to use your platform to influence with the stage that we have.”

As for the national anthem demonstrations … Jenkins says it wasn’t the focus of the meeting.

Harvey Weinstein to TWC Board, ‘I’m Sorry, I Have a Real Problem’

 

 

Harvey Weinstein was apologetic and contrite during the Board of Directors meeting Tuesday when he resigned under pressure from the Board … sources connected to the meeting tell TMZ.

We’re told there was no screaming, no yelling, no anger. Harvey Weinstein told the Board, “I have a real problem,” and then apologized for the “trouble and confusion” he caused TWC.

We’re told Weinstein, who was on speaker phone from Arizona, told the Board he needed to build a new life and move on.

Our sources say everyone sounded conciliatory … partly because the handwriting was on the wall.  The Board made it clear Weinstein had a legal obligation to resign from the Board after it ratified his firing from TWC. He did just that.

Harvey, we’re told, was “peaceful” during the meeting and Bob was subdued.

We’re told the sense of the Board is that Harvey Weinstein will not force his firing to arbitration or court.

Our sources say both Harvey and Bob Weinstein have an overriding interest in making sure Colony Capital succeeds in restructuring the company — money. The each have roughly 21% equity interest in TWC, and if the company fails, they walk away with nothing.

As one source put it, “Harvey and Bob have a huge stake in making sure Colony Capital can put Humpty Dumpty back together again.”
