Fox News Host Eric Bolling has filed a lawsuit against the Huffington Post reporter who wrote the story responsible for his being suspended.
Yashar Ali reported that 14 anonymous sources told him that Bolling had texted lewd images to two of his female co-workers. None of the sources would go on the record and no actual charges or suits have been filed against Bolling for the actions that allegedly happened years ago.
Bolling, through legal firm Kasowitz Benson Torres, LLP, filed a $50 million defamation suit against Ali on Wednesday.
The suit is a defense, similar to that of Fox personality Sean Hannity, to push back against unnamed, unproven claims levied at Fox News most Conservative and popular voices. Hannity successfully fought off a false attack against him and Eric looks set to do the same.
