Bolling Balls

From NEWSWEEK:

On Friday it was reported that Fox News host Eric Bolling was accused of sending unsolicited explicit pictures to three female colleagues. The women who received the messages allege they were sent from Bolling’s number, reported Huffington Post, citing 14 sources.

A Fox News spokeswoman told Newsweek: “We were just informed of this late Friday afternoon via a Huff Post inquiry and plan to investigate the matter.”

Newsweek lists other Faux News sexual harassment scandals of late (comments in brackets are mine):

Roger Ailes

Fox News CEO Roger Ailes was forced to quit in July 2016, after allegations emerged that he had harassed female colleagues. In a lawsuit, former anchor Gretchen Carlson claimed she was sacked for refusing Ailes’s advances. Six other female Fox employees and former Fox host Megyn Kelly also alleged harassment by Ailes.

After resigning from the station he founded in 1996, Ailes advised [fellow pervert and sexual harasser] Donald Trump in his presidential campaign. He died, aged 77, in May.

Bill O’Reilly

In an explosive report in April, the New York Times claimed that Fox News settled five sexual harassment and verbal abuse lawsuits against its top-rated host, Bill O’Reilly, since 2002. The payments totaled $13 million, according to the report.

Bill Shine

The co-president of the channel, Shine resigned on May 1 amid the fallout from the harassment allegations. Shine was accused in several lawsuits of failing to take action to stop sexual harassment at the company.

According to reports, he is currently in contention for the White `House communications director role recently vacated by Anthony Scaramucci. [Of course, he is.]

Jesse Waters

In April, Fox News host Jesse Waters announced he was taking an unannounced vacation, after being accused of making lewd remarks about President Trump’s daughter, and White House adviser, Ivanka Trump. [Only her DaddyHubby is allowed to make lewd remarks about DaughterWife.]

Charles Payne

In July, Fox Business suspended presenter Charles Payne, after he was accused of sexual harassment by former network guest Scottie Nell Hughes.

After Payne admitted conducting a three year romantic affair with Hughes, Hughes said that she thought the relationship would help her obtain a permanent position at the network, and that her appearances on Fox drastically reduced after she ended the affair in 2015.

  1. this must be the Bolling Green Balls massacre Kellyanne Goebbels has been trying to warn all the good folks about.

  2. Oh boy. Fox, it seems, has a number of sly and sex craved men that seem to gravitate to the faux news, “men in the den.”

  3. OK, I’m stumped by some of the added imagery on this one. It’s not hard to guess what the thing on Bolling’s phone represents, but why “Falafel News”? Why the loofahs?

    This being Fox, I’ll assume the book at the lower right is an instruction manual.

    I knew the original image must be from a really old movie because of the ashtray on the table.

    • Let me see if I remember everything I added. Of course, on the TV screen was the infamous Inside Edition clip of Twitler and Billy Bush. In front of Bolling is a cellphone with an eggplant emoji on it. Bill Shine is hiding his Hustler magazine in his folder. As for the falafels and the loofahs, that’s all about BillO. Remember?

      Glad you stopped by, Infidel. Wanted to let you know I was out most of Sunday, so I didn’t get to your links until last night, and I didn’t finish clicking away until today. I figured it was too late to comment, but I wanted to let you know your hard work is appreciated, and I took full advantage of it. 😀

      • Ah. I do vaguely remember the O’Reilly/falafel thing now (not something I’d like to associate with Middle Eastern food, but I guess even he has to eat something). There have been so many Fox News sexual-harassment scandals that it’s hard to keep track of the details.

        Glad you enjoyed the link round-up (it’s never too late to comment, but never expected either, of course). I hope the dog is getting used to them. 🙂

        • Faux News sex scandals are a perfect metaphor for this administration. There is so much to be outraged about that you forget half of what you should be outraged about. BillO does have to eat something, and it turned out to be a shit sandwich. I hope he chokes on it.

          The dog is far smarter than I. I was sitting here at 5 in the morning, only halfway through the links while he was snoring and sleeping quite soundly on my side of the bed. He does that every night so that, when it’s time for me to get into bed, my side is warm and covered with fur, and his side is nice and cool and clean. It’s almost like being married (except I love the dog). 😉
