Fox News suspends host Eric Bolling after report of lewd text messages

Fox News suspends host Eric Bolling after report of lewd text messages

Recipients of the photo confirmed its contents to HuffPost, which is not revealing their identities. Their claims were corroborated by a dozen others who had either seen the photos themselves or had been told about them.

The women, who said they did not solicit the messages, claimed they recognized the number as Bolling's from previous work-related interactions.

Huffington Post reported that the messages were sent several years ago on separate occasions.

"Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is now underway", the network said in a statement.

Another Fox News host, Bill O'Reilly, was forced to leave the network in April after The New York Times reported on a series of sexual harassment cases against him.

Fox News will investigate the accusations, which broke late Friday.

Fox News has suspended host Eric Bolling pending the results of its investigation he sent lewd photos to three female colleagues.

Fox host Sean Hannity and Fox Business Network host Charles Payne have also been accused of sexual misconduct, though those allegations have fallen on their face.

Former Fox anchors Megyn Kelly and Andrea Tantaros also accused Mr Ailes, who died aged 77 in May, of sexual harassment following his shock departure. On The Five in 2014, during a discussion about the first woman fighter pilot from the United Arab Emirates, Bolling asked whether it was more appropriate to say "boobs on the ground" instead of "boots on the ground".

The allegations are only the latest to rock Fox News.

Bolling, who is now on Fox News' nightly show The Specialists, has worked at the network and Fox Business since 2007.

President Donald Trump helped promote Bolling's book, The Swamp, by retweeting him in June.

Fox News recently renewed Bolling's contract. All spoke on condition of anonymity on account of being previously or now employed by Fox News or its parent company, the report said.
