New Sexual Harassment Allegations Leveled Against Fox News’ Eric Bolling

The accusations came just hours after the network announced it had suspended Bolling.

Three hours after Fox News announced it had suspended host Eric Bolling following allegations that he had sexually harassed female colleagues, a former Fox News guest leveled new accusations against him. Caroline Heldman, who appeared on the network frequently between 2008 and 2011, said Saturday that Bolling was one of three Fox News/Fox Business employees to subject her to sexual harassment.

Fox News announced Bolling’s suspension less than 24 hours after an exclusive HuffPost report revealed that the host had sent lewd text messages to female colleagues.

“Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement to HuffPost. The network did not immediately return request for comment on the new allegations against Bolling.

Bolling’s lawyer, Michael J. Bowe, did not immediately return a request for comment on Heldman’s accusations. …

Heldman referred to Bolling’s suspension in a post on her Facebook page, which HuffPost has confirmed belongs to her. ”My only surprise is that it took this long for people to come forward about Bolling’s behavior, which has been wildly inappropriate for years,” she said.

Heldman said she had also been subjected to sexual harassment by former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and former Fox News consultant Woody Fraser. Mother Jones was first to report this week that Heldman, under the penalty of perjury, signed a declaration stating that Fraser offered her a paid Fox News contributor gig in exchange for sex.

“I did hundreds of appearances on Fox and Fox Business from 2008 – 2011, and had multiple experiences with Bolling that caused grave concern to my friends and family. Bolling referred to me as ‘Dr. McHottie’ on air on four different occasions, and called me ‘smart, beautiful, and wrong’ on air twice,” Heldman wrote in her Facebook post.

“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. He said he wanted to fly me out to New York for in-studio hits and to have ‘fun.’ He asked me to have meals with him on several occasions, but I found excuses not to go. Once, he took me up to his office in New York, showed me his baseball jerseys, and in the brief time I was there, let me know that his office was his favorite place to have sex,” she added. “I know other women have had similar experiences with Bolling, which means that lots of folks at Fox knew about his behavior well before 2017.” …

Heldman also suggested in her Facebook post that the lawyers investigating the sexual harassment claims leveled against Bolling should speak to the makeup artists at Fox News.

“Make-up artists at Fox are contract workers, so many are fearful of speaking up because they simply won’t be hired again,” Heldman said. “If any Fox executives are reading this, please include make-up artists in your assessment of the environment. They see and hear a lot, and are sometimes the target of harassment from hosts and guests.” …

Bolling is a co-host of “The Specialists,” a panel program that airs every weekday at 5 p.m. Eastern time. A source familiar with the matter told HuffPost that a rotating group of hosts will fill in for Bolling.

Bolling also hosts “Cashin’ In,” a weekly business show that airs on Saturdays.

Fox News host and Trump supporter Eric Bolling suspended ‘after sending unsolicited sexts to colleagues’. Bolling is the third high-profile member of staff at Fox to face sexual harassment allegations: here.

This conservative analyst is suing Fox News, which she says retaliated after she came to them with allegations she’d been raped by network anchor Charles Payne.

Rupert Murdoch and British election upset, Beatles parody


This 9 June 2017 satiric music video from Britain is called The Jeremy Corbeatles – “Fuck You, The Sun“.

It is a parody of the song Here Comes the Sun, by the Beatles.

Big right-wing media billionaire Rupert Murdoch ran away furiously from the election room of his Times newspaper when he heard that the British Conservatives had lost their majority in the general election.

It says about itself:

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn adapts a classic Beatles number for Rupert Murdoch, Paul Dacre and Richard Desmond.

LYRICS:

Fuck you, The Sun!
Ha ha ha ha
Fuck you, The Sun!
The Mail and the Express

Rupert Murdoch, I’ve tried my best to be magnanimous
Rupert Murdoch, I can’t contain it any more

Fuck you, The Sun!
Ha ha ha ha
Fuck you, The Sun!
The Mail and the Express

Paul Dacre, the smile has disappeared from your face
Paul Dacre, you can’t fool everyone all the time

Fuck you, The Sun!
Ha ha ha ha
Fuck you, The Sun!
The Mail and the Express

Sun, Sun, Sun, suck your mum
Sun, Sun, Sun, suck your mum

Richard Desmond, you tax-avoiding shit porn baron
Richard Desmond, I might just laugh my arse right off

Fuck you, The Sun!
Ha ha ha ha
Fuck you, The Sun!
The Mail and the Express

Sun, Sun, Sun, suck your mum

Fake news, its history

FAKE: Fox News Interviews Imaginary “Swedish Defense Advisor”

27 February 2017

Fox News brings on Nils Bildt, a supposed expert on Sweden, to tell Bill O’Reilly‘s audience that there was some legitimacy in Donald Trump‘s claim of a recent Swedish terrorist attack, but actual Swedish national security officials have never heard of him.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Fake news isn’t new, you can ask Zinoviev

Monday 29th May 2017

“WE’VE always had fake news,” Stop the War convener Lindsey German told a Merthyr Rising discussion on the subject.

“It’s been around at least since the 1920s when the Zinoviev letter was invented and propagated in the newspapers to turn an election against Labour,” she said in the session featured on RT programme Renegade Inc.

And Alastair Campbell’s dodgy dossier claiming that Iraq could launch weapons of mass destruction against Britain in 45 minutes also came into this category, Ms German added.

Former British diplomat Craig Murray insisted that citizen journalism was “open to abuse” but no more than mainstream journalism.

Cardiff University School of Journalism lecturer Mike Berry reported on analysis of coverage of the banking crisis in newspapers and the BBC radio Today programme.

He pointed to the tendency to seek comments from sources in the City, pointing out: “These are not going to be people arguing for stronger reform of the banking industry.”

The White House social media director got in a bit of hot water after tweeting fake news.

Murdoch minion incites murder of British Labour leader


This 2016 video from Britain is called The Sun Newspaper Is Racist With Rupert Murdoch At The Helm

MacKenzie could face police quiz over Corbyn knife ‘joke’

Thursday 4th May 2017

SUSPENDED columnist and former editor of the Sun newspaper Kelvin MacKenzie could be reported to the police for inciting hatred and violence towards Jeremy Corbyn, Labour sources said yesterday.

The hack “joked” about the idea of the Labour leader being “knifed to death” in an interview with the New York Times.

He then contacted writer Katrin Bennhold in an attempt to change the quote and referred to the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox last June as the reason for his sudden change of mind.

Mr MacKenzie was quoted as having said: “I think the fake news headline that would give this country the most joy would be: ‘Jeremy Corbyn knifed to death by an asylum-seeker’.”

Ms Bennhold wrote: “The next morning, I got a text message from Mr MacKenzie: ‘Hi Katrin, Can you change that perfect headline from ‘Jeremy Corbyn knifed to death by asylum-seeker’ to ‘Jeremy Corbyn defrauded by asylum-seeker.’ In the light of Jo Cox murder mine is in tol [sic] poor taste.”

The Sun suspended Mr MacKenzie — who was in charge when the Sun published front-page lies about the 96 Liverpool fans killed at Hillsborough — for comparing mixed-race Everton footballer Ross Barkley with a gorilla last month.

He is also known for criticising Channel 4 for delegating the job of reporting the Nice truck attack last year to Muslim newsreader Fatima Manji, who wears a headscarf.

A Labour source confirmed to the Star that Mr MacKenzie could be reported to the police.

They said: “This sort of disgusting language should not be tolerated by anyone in the media, politics or any walk of life.

“We saw last year how overheated language in politics led to the murder of Jo Cox.”

I suspect that police may not treat MacKenzie as harshly as they might theat some hypothetical Muslim who hypothetically made some sick joke about knifing, eg, Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May to death.
