If the accusations against Bolling are true, they would become the latest in a string of scandals at a network that has become a den for sexual predators, misogynists, racists, and promulgators of pro-Trump fake news. Since Ailes was forced out, multiple former and current Fox News hosts have accused him of harassment, including CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota. 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.

Fox News suspended Eric Bolling, a longtime host at the network, on Saturday pending an investigation into reports that he sent lewd photographs to three female colleagues via text message.

Fox News has chose to suspend longtime host Eric Bolling amid allegations that he sent a lewd and inappropriate photos to several female colleagues a few years ago.

He was one of Fox News' earliest and most vocal supporters and an original co-host of "The Five", before moving up the ranks. His newest gig, which premiered on May 1, is "The Fox News Specialists" where he serves as a co-host along with Katherine Timpf and Eboni Williams.

Bolling has denied all allegations against him. He now serves as co-host of the evening talk show "The Five".

Bolling, now the host of "Fox News Specialists" and a former host of "The Five", had his suspension publicly confirmed on Saturday, NBC News reports.

"It's something I've never seen and experienced - obviously, I'm a male", Bolling said at the time.

Back in 2014, when discussing the first woman fighter pilot from the UAE, he asked whether it was better to say, "boobs on the ground", instead of, "boots on the ground". In June, Trump retweeted a Bolling plug for his latest book, The Swamp: Washington's Murky Pool of Corruption and Cronyism and How Trump Can Drain It.

According to the Huffington Post, Bolling was also caught making misogynistic comments on air.

What in the world is going on at the FOX News channel?

The multiyear extension ended speculation that he was going to accept a position in the Trump administration.

However, a source from Fox News seems to debunk this claim by noting that Bolling's office is made up of glass.
