Skip to comments.The Plot Thickens: Conservative Host Eric Bolling is Suspended by Fox News

One-by-one, key players at Fox News are being taken out by allegations that remain untested in any judicial proceedings. On Friday evening August 4 at 8:23 PM, an article was published at HuffPost: Fox News Host Sent Unsolicited Lewd Text Messages To Colleagues, Sources Say. The article had obviously been in preparation for some time, since it included a statement from Bollings attorney defending his client. The host is Eric Bolling, 54, a friend of President Donald Trump, and a defender of the president in his role as a prominent anchor and co-host on the Fox News channel (FNC).
Friday night, after seeing the HuffPost article, which was also mass distributed by Yahoo News, FNC executives, according to a Fox News spokesperson, decided that Bollings weekly half hour Saturday morning FNC show Cashin In, that had already been pre-recorded as usual on Friday, would not be shown. A live news broadcast was substituted instead. On Saturday, an FNC spokesperson issued a terse statement: Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway. Later Saturday afternoon, an FNC spokesperson emailed me with this additional information.
Paul, Weiss is conducting the investigation.
Rotating substitute hosts will be in place on The Specialists (weekdays/5pm) and Cashin In' (Saturdays at 11:30am).
After the suspension was announced, Bollings attorney Michael J. Bowe defended his client in an email, according to the AP:

Eric is Boiling mad.
Eric is Idled
I thought strong, feminist women could handle being sent a photo of someones nuts. That they could laugh it off. How many years ago did this take place? No one knows and for sure the images were not saved. More she said, he said. All in the service of taking out a conservative media figure.
If Bolling sent multiple photos to one woman then this is harassment. One photo is nothing.
No way in hell will I watch that show. Eric was the only reason I watched it. FOX I’d dying and eating their best hosts.
That Specialists show was crap even with Bolling, without him it will be useless.
I’m un-DVR’ing it right now.
This is an incredibly stupid decision. The only people I now like on Fox are Kat, Tyrus and Greg Gutfeld.
Btw, they should not have moved “The Five” to nine o’clock.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Kat is a near-liberal and too talky, Greg used to be a never Trumper but has tempered that lately in the face of the onslaught against Trump, and Tyrus is humorous but no conservative. All in my opinion.
Yes, Kat is definitely liberal, or tending that way. I agree with you on all of those points.
I just take it for what it is: entertainment. :)
“Kat ... too talky...”
Kat comes across as an airhead (my opinion) Greg is good - most of Fox News is unwatchable and the only choice where I live is Time Warner so no OAN for us.
Why do you assume he sent any photos? He has, through his attorney, denied it.
Fox news is in a race to the bottom with the communist news network.
Fox is systematically purging all of their conservative and right leaning anchors and hosts.
In this case, as well as with several others, it’s not whether the subject is innocent or guilty, but the seriousness of the charge that destroys the subject’s career.
I read the whole article. Is the Ali guy a muslim?
Please notice that Eric Bolling does not have to come out and lie. This would be stupid. He had his lawyer do it for him. Eric and his lawyer have a good game going because they are making a safe bet that the photographs no longer exist.
IOW Bolling sent the photos but it cannot be proven. I am pro-Eric Bolling and hope this turns out well for him. Just another case of greedy women trying to score some $$$$$ off of Fox News.
My mom and I love Eric, but we just haven't been able to watch that show, even with Eric.
Now give him a show of his own, without dragging all that dead weight around, and we're in.
That Kat girl seemed very nice on the late night shows, but she's in over her head during the daytime with the grownups. And GET RID OF THOSE GIGANTIC GLASSES!
You actually DVR'd it? I guess I just couldn't spare a square.
Yes. HUGE mistake. We don't watch it anymore. Especially without Eric.
