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):
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.
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.
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.]
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.]
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.
