Just when you think Fox might be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel it turns out the light is another freight train. Now, another popular conservative host stands accused of sexual misconduct.
But, as we have said before, things are not always what they appear to be.
Fox moved quickly to suspend Eric Bolling last week after allegations surfaced that he sent genitalia pictures to female co-workers-years ago. Huffington Post broke the story, which unsurprisingly was based on 14 anonymous sources. According to HuffPo, the sources allegedly “feared for their jobs and reputations.”
Bolling, through his lawyers, vehemently denied the accusations. “Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications, and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made.”
Despite his denial, Fox made the decision to suspend him pending the outcome of an investigation by the law firm, Paul Weiss.
Complicating the situation further, a second allegation of sexual harassment was revealed on Saturday. However, his accuser is raising more than few eyebrows. She is the same woman who accused Bill O’Reilly of sexual harassment. And T.V. executive Woody Frasier. And former MBA star, Lenny Dykstra.
Do you see the pattern here?
Dr. Caroline Heldman is an associate Professor of Politics at Occidental College. She is also the Director of the ultra-feminist Geena Davis Institute for Gender in Media. After Boiling was suspended she posted a lengthy story on her Facebook page.

Fox has stated there will be rotating hosts replacing Bolling during the review, both on his 5 p.m. weekday show The Specialists and his Saturday show Cashin’ in.
