Over the weekend, Fox News confirmed it has suspended anchor Eric Bolling after allegations emerged he sent unsolicited, explicit text messages to female co-workers.
In a statement Saturday, the news channel stated that:
“Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway.”
Citing a dozen anonymous sources, reporters at HuffPost revealed Bolling had sent explicit photos to two employees at Fox Business Network and an additional co-worker at Fox News.
Several personalities at Fox News had been accused of inappropriate activity recently, including Bill O’Reilley, then the network’s top anchor, who was forced out of his prime time slot. Former network chief Roger Ailes was also removed following allegations of impropriety.
The Paul Weiss law firm will investigate Bolling’s activities for the network.
