Eric Bolling suspended from Fox News amid lewd texting scandal

Image

Fox News said Saturday that host Eric Bolling will be suspended from air "pending the results of an investigation" into whether he sent lewd photos to co-workers, a network spokesperson confirmed to CNNMoney.

The show Bolling typically hosts on Saturdays, "Cashin' In," did not air.

News of the suspension came one day after HuffPost published a story saying more than a dozen sources confirmed that Bolling had sent female colleagues an "unsolicited" photo of his genitals.

Bolling's attorney said he denies the claims.

Eric Bolling out at Fox News after report of lewd text messages

Image

Fox News host Eric Bolling is leaving the network on the heels of a report that he had sent lewd text messages to female colleagues.

In a statement on Friday, Fox said that it was canceling "The Specialists," the late afternoon talk show co-hosted by Bolling that launched earlier this year, and that it had agreed to part with him "amicably."

"We thank Eric for his ten years of service to our loyal viewers and wish him the best of luck," the statement said.

The news arrived on the same day that Charles Payne, a host on Fox's sister network Fox Business, will return to his job following an investigation into his own alleged sexual misconduct. Payne has denied the allegations against him.

Bolling's alleged behavior was detailed last month in a story published by HuffPost. He denied those allegations and later sued the reporter who wrote the HuffPost story, Yashar Ali.

Bolling did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Bolling is just the latest high-profile Fox employee to leave the company amid damning allegations. In April, Fox sacked its top-rated host Bill O'Reilly after dozens of advertisers fled his show over the revelation that he and the network had paid millions in settlements to women who accused him of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior. (O'Reilly, now hosting a show that is broadcast on his website, has consistently denied those allegations.)

Nearly a year before O'Reilly's ouster, the late Fox co-founder Roger Ailes was forced out of the network amid an avalanche of sexual harassment allegations, which he denied.

Eric Bolling's son dies hours after father loses Fox News job

Image

Eric Bolling's son Eric Chase died on Friday night, just hours after his father lost a high-profile job at the Fox News Channel.

The cause of death has not been announced. According to a family friend, an autopsy will not take place until Monday.

Eric Chase Bolling was starting his second year at the University of Colorado in Boulder. It is unclear if he died on or off campus. Local authorities did not immediately respond to requests for comment from CNN.

His parents learned of the death late Friday night and flew to Colorado on Saturday morning.

Eric Bolling confirmed the heart-wrenching news in a tweet.

"Adrienne and I are devastated by the loss of our beloved son Eric Chase last night. Details still unclear," Bolling wrote. "Thoughts, prayers appreciated."

In a second tweet, Bolling said that an autopsy would be conducted next week. "Authorities have informed us there is no sign of self harm at this point. ... Please respect our grieving period," he wrote.

The family friend said the Bollings are in a profound state of shock. Eric was their only child.

Eric Bolling sometimes talked lovingly about his son on Fox News. Bolling, a former trader, joined Fox Business Network in 2007 and later jumped to Fox News, where he became one of the channel's best-known conservative hosts. In his appearances on the 5 p.m. talk show "The Five," he cheered on Donald Trump's campaign for president. He also wrote a pro-Trump book called "The Swamp."

Trump's sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump expressed their condolences in separate messages on Twitter. "I am so sorry for your loss. I know how devoted you were to your son. I cannot fathom how difficult this must be," Donald Trump Jr. tweeted.

When "The Five" was moved to 9 p.m. last spring, Bolling stayed on at 5 p.m. as the leader of a new show called "The Specialists."

He signed a multi-year contract in June. He parted ways with Fox News in August after an investigation into allegations, first reported by HuffPost, that Bolling had sent female colleagues an "unsolicited" lewd photo.

Bolling moved to sue the HuffPost reporter and vowed to fight the claims, which he called "false smear attacks."

"I look forward to clearing my name" as soon as possible, he said.

Fox announced his departure around 4:30 p.m. on Friday. Fox said it happened "amicably." "The Specialists" was canceled.

Sources at Fox said staffers were shaken up about the sudden death.

"We are very saddened to hear of the passing of Eric Bolling's son," the network said in a statement. "Eric Chase was a wonderful young man and our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Bolling family."

Bolling's former colleagues and other journalists also expressed condolences.

"So awful. My heart goes out to Eric and his family," CNN's Don Lemon tweeted.

"Overwhelmed by the news of Eric Bolling's son," Fox contributor Katie Pavlich tweeted. "How absolutely horrific and devastating."

Fox host compares 9/11 memorial to Confederate monuments

Image

In an interview with Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, "Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade alluded to a memorial for passengers of United Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where Zinke was slated to speak.

"Do you worry that 100 years from now someone is going to take that memorial down like they are trying remake our memorials today?" Kilmeade asked, referring to the recent controversies that have led to the removal of statues for Confederate military leaders like Robert E. Lee.

"I'm one that believes we should learn from history and I think our monuments are part of our country's history," Zinke replied. "We can learn from it. Since we don't put up statues of Jesus, everyone is going to fall morally short. And I think reflecting on our history, both good and bad, is a powerful statement and part of our DNA. So I'm an advocate of, again, learning from our monuments, understanding the period they were made. But also, we live in a great country and monuments are not Republican, Democrat, independent. The monuments are a tribute to all of us."

Why Shepard Smith's debunking of Clinton-uranium deal theory left Fox News viewers enraged

Image

Some viewers are calling for Fox News anchor Shepard Smith “to go” while others are basically saying “way to go” after he spent several minutes on his show Tuesday debunking a conspiracy theory surrounding a sale of uranium to Russians while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.

Smith said the theory that then-candidate Donald Trump repeatedly shared during the 2016 campaign — one purporting that investors in a uranium sale approved by Clinton’s state department funneled $145 million to the Clinton Foundation in a quid pro quo deal — is “inaccurate in a number of ways.”

For one, Smith said, Clinton’s state department had no authority to veto or approve such a transaction and that, instead, it was approved by an interagency committee — the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States — made up of members of nine government agencies, including the state department.

We'll never forget what Bill Clinton did. Thanks for raising the issue. 8)


The non-Democrat view:

According to UN/UNICEF figures, killed 1.2 million citizens in Iraq, 200, 000 more than W.

When asked if it was worth it to kill a half a million children, his Secretary of State answered: "We think the price was worth it."

It may make the moral man wonder of this holocaust, what is worth killing a half a million children?

Oil? Saddam going off the dollar in oil trades?

We never really heard what the return was, maybe the usual we killed them to bring democracy to Iraq, that's good enough, put that on the tv, that'll keep the Democrats coming back.

_______________________________________________________

I consider the above mass baby killing a vote (or praise), disqualifier, however tv-propaganda has also overlooked:

Outsourced our jobs and collapsed the Mexican economy (driving millions of farmers into foreclosure and across the border), with his gift to the rich of NAFTA.

Image

Clinton also surrendered our trade sovereignty to new global corporations, outsourcing virtually every outsourcable job to Chinese and other sweatshops with The WTO treaty.

The loss of tens of millions of manufacturing jobs upset decades long balances in the US; employers no longer had to compete for employees with good wages and benefits.

Wages stagnated as people moved from manufacturing to multiple part-time, service-orientated jobs. Medical and pension benefits were lost, and we gained a general feeling of fear and insecurity because now if you lost your job, you weren't gonna get another one with pension and medical next week...and good jobs were disappearing.

We still suffer under this major fundamental shift away from manufacturing.

Young people of today barely remember when only 20% of mothers worked and single incomes had full pensions and medical for the family...that's the way it was...seems unbelievable today; boil the frog slowly.

Clinton also put the bankers in charge and exited Glass-Steagall.
He said he was wrong to take Rubin's and Summer's advice and deregulate derivatives, but we got them anyways...so now the banks were free to play with our pension money, and that they did...creating a monster sub-prime bubble which crashed...and Obama with Clintons team rehired (Summers and bad advice Rubin and Geitner and the whores), put the taxpayers on the hook to pay back the banks that just lost their pension money.

Image

I could go on, but praising the baby killer above is really about all I need to know, the rest of the transfer of wealth to the rich is secondary.

I'm still waiting for the answer on exactly what was worth it, what was worth killing 500, 000 kids for?

I guess that answer will never come.

^ You don't realize how fortunate we are that Mr Nice decided to make the FZ forum his own personal dumping ground for corporate political propaganda.

There's nothing fascist about it at all. I'm sure you can appreciate a fellow taking the time to haul garbage salvaged elsewhere over here to this forum. We need it.

On Tuesday, longtime Fox News contributor Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (Ret) quit the network in what he described as "nuclear" style. In the e-mail he sent to colleagues was included this explanation:

Four decades ago, I took an oath as a newly commissioned officer. I swore to "support and defend the Constitution," and that oath did not expire when I took off my uniform. Today, I feel that Fox News is assaulting our constitutional order and the rule of law, while fostering corrosive and unjustified paranoia among viewers. Over my decade with Fox, I long was proud of the association. Now I am ashamed. In my view, Fox has degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration. When prime-time hosts--who have never served our country in any capacity--dismiss facts and empirical reality to launch profoundly dishonest assaults on the FBI, the Justice Department, the courts, the intelligence community (in which I served) and, not least, a model public servant and genuine war hero such as Robert Mueller--all the while scaremongering with lurid warnings of "deep-state" machinations-- I cannot be part of the same organization, even at a remove. To me, Fox News is now wittingly harming our system of government for profit.

For all practical purposes, Fox News can technically be called "state news" in light of the revelation about Hannity's influence over the white house, to the point of being Trump's unofficial/official chief of staff, using the same lawyer to consult.. Hannity is Joseph Goebbels. We have about 60 million Nazi's/Nazi sympathisers in the USA now who accept this as the new normal for our country.

The GOP must be stopped to save America.
