‘Wild West of sexual harassment’: Eric Bolling’s accuser tells Joy Reid about the despicable culture at Fox News

Published

on

Joy Reid sounded off on the latest vile incident coming from inside the walls at Fox News.

The AM Joy host compared Eric Bolling, the conservative anchor at the embattled network, who’s been suspended for allegedly sending unsolicited photos of his genitals to three female colleagues, to an infamous NY politician.

“A Fox News host had an Anthony Weiner moment,” said Reid.

After Reid unleashed on Bolling, she allowed one of the woman who has come forward to further explain her troubling allegations.

Dr. Caroline Heldman — an associate professor of politics at Occidental University — said that Bolling referred to her as “Dr. McHottie” on the air and contacted her repeatedly via phone and text with vulgar and sexually explicit messages.

Heldman used an emotional Facebook post Saturday when she came forward.

“[Fox] was the Wild West of sexual harassment,” said Heldman of the culture back in 2008 at the network. “It was very clear to me that I would have been immediately off air if I complained.”

A FOX News spokesperson told Raw Story, “we are investigating this matter and all claims will be taken into account.”

Economist Julianne Malveaux explained to the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that there was a time in the United States where black Americans were actually closing the wealth gap with white Americans -- until white Americans rioted and burned their property.

During her testimony at a hearing on reparations, Malveaux recounted the horrific story of the destruction of "Black Wall Street," which was a location in Tulsa, Oklahoma that was known for its high concentration of black-owned businesses and black wealth.

The area's prosperity came to an end in 1921 when white Tulsa residents used baseless accusation of a black man sexually assaulting a white woman as a justification to chase out all black residents and set fire to their neighborhoods. Hundreds of black residents were killed in the riots and the majority fled the city.

Hope Hicks testified Wednesday during a closed-door hearing before the House Judiciary Committee -- where she reportedly refused to answer many questions.
