Eric Bolling is the latest casualty of FOX News’ sex scandal purge. On Friday, FOX terminated Bolling after an investigation revealed he sent pictures of his penis to several coworkers.
“Fox News Channel is canceling ‘The Specialists,’ and Eric Bolling and Fox have agreed to part ways amicably,” according to a statement by the network. “We thank Eric for his ten years of service to our loyal viewers and wish him the best of luck.”
However, Alex Jones, America’s favorite conspiracy theorist, sees sinister work at hand.
“Bolling was fired because he was planning to expose the liberal-Illuminati-reptilian alien conspiracy to bring down Donald Trump,” said Jones on his show “InfoWars.” “All these groups have a vested interest in Trump’s failure. Eric was going to expose them and so they got him fired.”
However, Bolling has a record of bad behavior, which includes sexist and racist comments. Occidental College Professor Carole Heldman, a frequent guest on Bolling’s show, claimed he told her he liked to have sex in his office.
“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,” said Heldman in a Facebook message.
Sexual harassment seems to run rampant at FOX. Former CEO Roger Ailes and anchor Bill O’Reilly were both fired for sexually harassing co-workers. The sex scandal exploded last year when former anchor Gretchen Carlson went public with her accusations.
Bolling told NJ.com that he wanted to enter politics after he finished his television career.
“When the lights go down on my TV career, the next step is running for Senate,” said Bolling.
