Fox News host accused of sending lewd text

Fox confirmed Saturday that Mr. Bolling had been suspended "pending the results of an investigation, which is now underway", a day after HuffPost reported that he had sent an unsolicited photo of male genitalia to three female colleagues.

Fox News' parent company, 21st Century Fox, has seen a stream of high-profile departures over the previous year in the wake of a number of sexual harassment scandals. Some (it's unknown how numerous three) are still employed by Fox and all are anonymous in the HuffPost report, though 12 additional anonymous sources confirmed they'd seen or heard of the alleged photo.

A Fox News spokesperson confirmed Saturday that Bolling's suspension is "pending the results of an investigation, which is now underway".

The network said in a statement that Bolling "has been suspended pending the results of an investigation" into claims that he sent unsolicited images of his genitals to three female Fox News employees several years ago, The Huffington Post reported Friday evening.

Matic is a genius, says Mourinho
Lukaku is an interesting acquisition for many reasons, particularly for what he does for the side's style of play as a whole. United finished a distant sixth on the Premier League table last term, but still won the Europa League and League Cup.

"Bolling would also contact me via phone and text after shows, sometimes to apologize for his behavior (and then do it again), and sometimes just to talk". Hours after the suspension was announced, Caroline Heldman, a politics professor at Occidental College who was a frequent guest on the network from 2008 to 2011, said Bolling made numerous unsolicited sexual advances at her.

The woman who lodged the complaint has appeared on Fox Business and Fox News as a political analyst and Payne has admitted to having an extramarital affair with her from 2013 to 2016. They had reportedly allowed him to film an episode of his show, Cashin In, on Friday morning, but pulled the episode following the report from HuffPo. In a September 2014 segment of "The Five", Bolling joked regarding Maj Mariam Al Mansouri, the first woman fighter pilot from the United Arab Emirates who bombed the Islamic State group in Aleppo, Syria.

Rotating substitute hosts will fill on for Bolling on The Specialists on weekdays and Cashin In' on Saturdays.

O'Reilly has since left the network amid scrutiny of sexual misconduct. Both Fox and the Trump Administration have refuted these claims. Out of them, two belongs to Fox Business, one worked at Fox News. Based on her account, Bolling also asked her out for meals on several occasions, but she managed to refuse every time. In an interview with NJ.Com, Bolling said the Trump transition had floated the position of commerce secretary, but he said he would only consider joining as a senior adviser. Thus, with its unobstructed view, everyone can see what is going on inside.
