Fox Newsman Eric Bolling is accused by multiple women of sending unsolicited… um… “pics” to multiple female coworkers. Here we go again.
Hey, when you are part of an organization that was run, for a very long time, by a man who sexually harassed multiple women it isn’t surprising that you, too, may be an abuser. Case in point, yet another Fox news personality is being accused of sending them the quintessential loser move — the unsolicited d-pic.
There is a lot of history at Fox News, the volumes of it could be titled: “An Abuser’s Paradise,” or “The Really Bad Good Ol’ Boy’s Club.” So, knowing that Eric Bolling, a Fox newsman and co-host of “The Specialists,” has been accused by multiple sources of sending pictures of “a man’s” genitals to female coworkers — unsolicited — really doesn’t seem all that shocking. That he has also denied it, as every single other one of them has also, is so expected as to be commonplace. Nothing shocking to see here, and that is a tragedy.
According to HuffPo:
Eric Bolling, a longtime Fox News host, sent an unsolicited photo of male genitalia via text message to at least two colleagues at Fox Business and one colleague at Fox News, a dozen sources told HuffPost.
Fox News said they had just found out about this and would look into it. Like a typical Fox newsman, Eric Bolling said through an attorney that he “does not believe he sent any such communications.”
Because you can “not believe” you sent the worst message a woman ever gets to coworkers? What does “not believe” entail, is it amnesia or what? It should be pretty easy to remember, seriously.
Of course, next thing will be that this is “fake news” pushed by women who are lying about unwanted pictures of the third leg of his camera’s tripod. Well, there seems to be an awful lot of witnesses, unwilling recipients, and people who know about Eric Bolling’s extracurricular activities, actually:
The women did not solicit the messages, which they told colleagues were deeply upsetting and offensive. One of the recipients said that when she replied to Bolling via text, telling him never to send her such photos again, he did not respond. Four people, outside of the recipients, confirmed to HuffPost they’d seen the photo, and eight others said the recipients had spoken to them about it.
For this story, HuffPost spoke to 14 sources in and out of Fox News and Fox Business, all of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity either because they currently work at the networks and aren’t allowed to speak to members of the press without prior authorization or because they have confidentiality agreements with Fox News and its parent company 21st Century Fox.
We could run over so many others from Fox News, but why rehash it all here, the fact is that this is simply far too many “exceptions” to not have doubts that abusive conduct isn’t actually the rule. Why can’t conservatives see that in an environment this unsavory, it would be hard to believe that anything truthful or good could come out of it.
