Fox News found out about the allegations against Bolling following an inquiry by the HuffPost, said the network in a statement it distributed through email.
The news that Fox News Channel has suspended host Eric Bolling brought to mind a local angle: He attended Rollins College - Class of 1984 - to play baseball and told me it was "a fantastic experience" in a December interview. In July, Fox Business host Charles Paynewas suspended after the Los Angeles Timesreported based on anonymous sources that he harassed a female political analyst. "Once, he took me up to his office in NY, 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.
Colbert complimented his own joke about glass houses, saying it was appropriate advice for Bolling since his office is made entirely of glass. Make-up artists at Fox are contract workers, so many are fearful of speaking up because they simply won't be hired again. They see and hear a lot, and are sometimes the target of harassment from hosts and guests.
Fox News over the weekend said that a law firm would carry out its investigation and added that substitute hosts would be rotated in fill in for Bolling on the show he is co-host of.
Bolling is a co-host of "The Specialists", a panel program that airs every weekday at 5 p.m.
Fox Business host Charles Payne is also now under suspension pending an investigation he sexually harassed a female political analyst who was a frequent guest on the network.
The allegations are the most recent to surface against employees at Fox News, which has worked in recent months to purge itself of the corporate culture fostered by former CEO Roger Ailes. The network pulled the episode and replaced it with half an hour of live news coverage.
