Fox’s Eric Bolling got suspended from Fox News following sexual harrassment allegations. The accuser, CNN contributor Caroline Heldman made a statement. “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,” said Heldmen.
“Bolling referred to me as “Dr. McHottie” on air on four different occasions, and called me “smart, beautiful, and wrong” on air twice. I pushed back with “Mr. McSexist,” but I shouldn’t have had to. This on-air behavior was perfectly acceptable to Fox executives at the time,” said Heldmen.
“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,” said Heldmen.
“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. 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,” said Heldmen.
The Huffington Post wrote that Bolling sent graphic sexual photos to her and four other women including Michelle Fields. Michelle Fields however completely denied this.
“False. Im not one of the women in @yashar‘s story & Eric Bolling was nothing but professional when I worked w/ him. Pls stop spreading lies,” tweeted Fields.
This gives Heldmen some serious credibility issues. Do you think Eric Bolling is innocent?
