Eric Bolling Sues Reporter Yashar Ali Who Got Him Suspended Over Sexual Harassment Allegations

The Fox News fiasco continues. In just the past year or so we’ve seen the departure of Megyn KellyGreta Van SusterenBob BeckelBill O’Reilly, Bill Shine, a suspension of Charles Payne, the departure and death of Roger Ailes, and even a cancellation of the popular late-night show “Red Eye.”

Then, as we reported last week, they came for Eric Bolling. He’s been suspended due to accusations that he sent lewd photos to multiple female colleagues in the past, but we don’t know who any of those alleged victims even are. The only potential victim to come forward is Caroline Heldman, a far-left professor who was also a Bill O’Reilly accuser.

Bolling’s attorney, Michael J. Bowe, told NPR that “The anonymous, uncorroborated claims are untrue and terribly unfair. We intend to fully cooperate with the investigation so that it can be concluded and Eric can return to work as quickly as possible,” – and now Bolling is coming back, swinging.

Fox News host Eric Bolling is reportedly suing the Huffington Post reporter who broke a story last week that included several female co-workers claiming Bolling sent them lewd photos.

“Just received a summons. Eric Bolling is suing me for defamation – $50 million in damages, ” Yashar Ali, a HuffPost contributing writer, tweeted to his 140,000 Twitter followers on Wednesday. “I stand by my reporting + will protect my sources.”

Ali also tweeted the suit targets him directly, not HuffPost.

“The nature of this action is for damages and injunctive relief based on defamation arising from the defendant’s efforts to injure the plaintiff’s reputation through the intentional and/or highly reckless publication of actionable false and misleading statements about the plaintiff’s conduct and character. As a result of the defendant’s actions, the plaintiff has been substantially harmed,” reads the summons sent to Ali.

H/T The Hill

If the allegations are indeed bogus, hopefully Bolling sues him for everything he has.

Fake news has consequences. And Bolling isn’t going to go quietly into the night like other Fox hosts.
