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.”

From MEDIA MATTERS:
This morning, the president of the United States used his favorite media platform for addressing the public to remind us of just how little respect he has for women — especially women in the press.
Shortly before 9 a.m., Trump posted two revoltingly sexist tweets attacking MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski for her appearance and intellect. The leader of the free world called the morning show anchor “low I.Q. Crazy Mika” and alleged that she had attempted to visit him at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida on New Year’s Eve and was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” at the time.

Anyone of you kids gonna watch the new Megyn Kelly show tonight? Nah, me either. Here are a few things to remember about Roger Ailes’s enthusiastic acolyte as NBC tries to whitewash her record.
From MEDIA MATTERS:
Kelly frequently hosted hate group leaders and extremists on her Fox News show

Former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren will join MSNBC and host an evening news show called “For the Record with Greta” in the 6 p.m. ET timeslot, the network announced Thursday.
The news comes just one day after Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly announced she was leaving Fox News for NBC News after a 12-year career. Kelly’s deal with NBC included a daytime program, a Sunday evening news show and regular participation in major event and political coverage.

From Doug Molitor at THE HUFFINGTON POST:
Fox News’s Megyn Kelly thinks cops pepper-spraying unresisting prisoners isn’t so bad, because after all, it’s “a food product, essentially.”
My advice to Megyn would be first, to spell her name with a normal vowel.
My second bit of advice would be not to eat out for a while. Definitely not at any restaurant where the waiters aren’t her fellow one-percenters.

And I hope you didn’t have to eat at Megyn Kelly’s house.

From Ben Dimiero at MEDIA MATTERS:
Is anyone in charge at Fox News?
This week was a bit of a mixed bag for the journalistic ethics of Fox News.
On the upside, we confirmed that News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch is familiar with the idea of journalistic standards. On the downside, Murdoch appears to be completely unaware that his news network doesn’t have any.
