Report: Fox News host Eric Bolling allegedly sent lewd texts to female colleagues

Four people, not including the sources, claimed to have seen the photo themselves, while eight more said the recipients had spoken to them about its contents.

The report said the messages were sent several years ago and on separate occasions.

Reached Friday by HuffPost about the accusations against Bolling, a Fox spokesperson said, "We were just informed of this and plan to investigate the matter".

The investigation comes as Fox News attempts to bounce back from a string of sexual harassment scandals that saw the network's founder, Roger Ailes, forced out amid claims of sexual misconduct.

The deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was signed in July 2015 and was implemented in January 2016. The diplomat also said presidents of seven countries had arrived Iran by Thursday night to take part in the ceremony.

The allegations follow a series of sexual harassment scandals involving senior Fox News executives and on-air stars.

According to a statement from Fox News to the CBC, an investigation into allegations against the television host is underway.

Former Fox anchors Megyn Kelly and Andrea Tantaros also accused Mr Ailes, who died aged 77 in May, of sexual harassment following his shock departure. When referring to the first female pilot in the United Arab Emirates during a segment on "The Five" in 2014, he said on air that it might be better to characterize her as "boobs on the ground" rather than "boots on the ground".

Primetime commentator Megyn Kelly also left Fox News this year, reportedly partially because she was upset by O'Reilly's criticism of her for publicly commenting on the sexual harassment she faced at Fox News, The New York Times reported in April.
