You’ve heard the story by now.
A report came out from the Huffington Post alleging that Fox News anchor Eric Bolling was sending inappropriate pictures of himself to female Fox employees. We all know what “inappropriate” means.
Bolling has maintained his innocence and tweeted that he would clear his name.
Some big news broke today.
Bolling is going after the HuffPo reporter with both barrels.
He sued him for $50 million.

From Washington Examiner:
Fox News host Eric Bolling is suing Huffington Post reporter Yashar Ali for defamation after he was was suspended last week following a report that he sent lewd photos of male genitalia to his female co-workers.
Bolling is seeking $50 million from Ali for a myraid of damages including, “reputable, monetary, special, and punitive.” Bolling is also seeking relief for “costs and fees,” according to a copy of the summons tweeted by CNN reporter Tom Kludt.
Bolling is a smart guy. It costs a lot of money to file lawsuits and pay lawyer fees. You gotta imagine he’s pretty confident he will be exonerated.
At the same time, Fox News doesn’t exactly have a sterling record in this department.
If I am going to bet on anyone, it would be Bolling because HuffPo is about as trustworthy as Hillary Clinton and that’s being kind of unfair to Hillary.
Get your popcorn ready…
