Video: Joy Reid Interviews Former Fox News Guest About Eric Bolling’s Alleged Sexual Harassment

Media • Views: 28,300

MSNBC

This morning on AM Joy, Joy Anne Reid interviewed former frequent Fox news guest Caroline Heldman about her allegations that Fox host (and inveterate racist) Eric Bolling sexually harassed her and other women.

Bolling was suspended by Fox News yesterday after the Huffington Post published this article by Yashar Ali: Fox News Host Sent Unsolicited Lewd Text Messages To Colleagues, Sources Say.

And by the way, if you take a run around the right wing blogs today, you’ll find them all viciously attacking and smearing Caroline Heldman.

Fox News exists because Rupert Murdoch believed he could make money off the gullible, the ignorant, and the atavists who were butthurt over social changes.

Rupert was correct.

The wingnuts who bought the story that Anthony Weiner initiated a relationship with a 15 yr old girl to send her dick pics express “disbelief” about a story involving a grown woman receiving unsolicited pics from Eric Bolling.

Surely it has nothing to do with partisan politics…/////

The wingnut rallying cry: IOKIYAR!

Think of the impeachment of Clinton: First Newt resigned because it turned out he was having an affair; then Livingston, the next in line, couldn’t take over because he also had an affair in his background, and finally Hastert became speaker. Of course, it took almost 2 decades before the terrible truth about Hastert was revealed.

It always appears that those most fervent in ferreting out or denouncing sexual misdeeds are themselves guilty of the same sin.

Seriously, Murdoch many years ago realized that certain markets in the US were being underserved, as far as television was concerned. He’s stated so. He knew exactly what he was doing. None of this is a secret. It’s not conspiracy. It’s not fantasy.

Murdoch knew that the television news business, dominated by CBS and ABC and NBC, and then CNN, were run by and written by the so-called “elite” - people from the major journalism schools and from the urban centers of NY and LA.

Hate him ( and there is much for which to hate him), but his jumping into a market others had overlooked is how people become rich.

Murdoch knew the masses would never be customers of the likes of Buckley, because, well, they couldn’t read his stuff.

The McCarthy/Wallace wing of the American population were just not getting what they wanted out of “news”. It was no more difficult for Murdoch to realize this than it was for Hefner years earlier to realize he could make lots of money in America by making acceptable pictures of naked women in a periodical.

There should be no “market” for news as far as a demographic group getting facts in a different manner than another group. Facts are facts, they shouldn’t have to be fit to a consumer group.

All Murdoch did was feed those that didn’t like facts something they did like, hearing what they wanted to hear.

All it has done was blow everything up to now everyone is doing what you say in your comment. They are looking to tailor how facts are presented to ‘sell’ to the largest viewer base they can build for ratings to sell advertising.

I heard something the other day about how news used to be the original big 3’s “civic duty” for a couple hours a day. They didn’t worry about getting ratings as it was a duty to the public to have to cover the news in a real manner pretty much by FCC decree. Public address messaging pre se.

Many people, companies and studios tried to set up a so-called “fourth television network” after Dumont’s 1956 demise. Rupert succeeded where countless others failed because he outbid a stagnant CBS for NFC football games (thanks, Laurence Tisch!), then entered side deals to switch many legacy “big 3” affiliates in major markets to Fox, with repercussions felt across the country for years thereafter.

And because of that, it enabled Rupert to team up with Roger Ailes and helped bring his dream of 24-hour GOP TV to the inevitable conclusion.

Greets and saluts from the Resistance in the NYC metro area.

The problems with Fox News aren’t just that it’s a hive of scum and villainy enabling misogynists like Bolling to create a hostile work environment. It’s that it’s weaponizing agitprop and that a segment of the population are impervious to facts and logic because they think all other media outlets are the ones lying.

That’s the problem right there.

The same news outlet that is pushing that a grand jury is undemocratic is deciding that they should skip indictments and a grand jury and go straight to prosecuting Hillary.

For a news outlet that claims Republicans and right wingers are the ones who adhere to the US Constitution, it’s sure curious how they ignore everything that’s actually in the Constitution unless it’s a clause of the 2A.

re: #15 ObserverArt

For a long time the news divisions were not money makers. TV companies made money by corporate sponsors of specific shows in the beginning of TV, transitioning then to selling ad time on a per minute basis.

My earliest TV memories… can’t quite place them, but they were the end of the corporate sponsor shows. Ford was Ed Sullivan’s sponsor, for example.

Anyway, a TV company couldn’t have their news program be sponsored by a single company any more, and have the news not be bought by a company. Thus news shows were not going to be money makers.

But this then is why “news” became entertainment - to draw in more viewers, to entice advertisements. After CNN started it was clear that cable was someday going to replace over-the-air broadcasting, and thus the race was on.

I suspect the news industry of my childhood is not only gone but will never come back.

The transition from broadcast to cable to on-demand reminds of Adam Curtis’ The Century of the Self.

(So much reminds me of The Century of the Self - I don’t know if Curtis made one big tautology, or if he happened upon one of the more important topics of our time.)

Naturally, Knapp warns against anthropomorphizing these findings, and she is completely right. There is a world of difference between howler monkeys and humans, especially with regard to sexual selection.

And yet, the study still conjures up visions of dudes who ride incomprehensibly loud motorcycles, or who catcall women on the street. Far from coming off as masculine, this kind of thing reeks of overcompensation in other, more sensitive areas.

Back in January of ‘03, my wife and I attended a conference in DC to talk about establishing a liberal counterpart to RWNJ Hate Radio (which was the genesis of Air America). Held in a Senate office building on the day of Dubya’s ‘03 SOTU address, it was a day-long conference.

All of what were considered the ‘big names’ in liberal talk radio were there - Randi Rhodes, Mike Molloy, Thom Hartmann, Ed Schulz. The wife of the guy who eventually bankrolled Air America (Sheldon Drobny) was there. We were visited at dinner by Clinton, Stabenow, Conyers, and Teddy Kennedy and his dog. And a lot of B-listers with aspirations were there to see if they could wrangle their way in on this new network.

Of everyone who was there, both Schultz and Cenk came off as major-league assholes. Schultz acted like he was the biggest star in the room, and Cenk seemed like he’d shiv anyone who got between him and Anita Drobny. (Anita liked me because I let her bum Marlboros off of me, but that’s a story for another time).

I still have Cenk’s card from that day. At the time he billed himself as ‘The Young Turk.’ And my initial impression has proven out.

I don’t see an increase in anti-Semitism in the Left in the US. I *do* sense a significant increase in ant-Bibiism from the left, including me. I think the left understands the difference between Israel (and Israelites) and their current PM.

Someday, I hope to read Silberman’s 500 page book. The linked article provides incentive.

No reason many people on the autism spectrum couldn’t function decently in society. Some social hacking and jury rigging required tho.

The exact same sentiment among wingnuts that would see Reagan ran out of the party today would have doomed JFK among moonbats the moment he brought LBJ onto the ticket. Yet Johnson did more to advance civil rights by working the system than Bernie ever did making speeches at a college campus.

I definitely see it, from the bullshit at the Chicago Dyke March to the mission creep that saw the Movement for Black Lives make BDS an official platform plank.

But, but BERNIIE MARCHED WITH MLK AND HAS FOUGHT FOR CIVIL RIGHTS EVERY DAY OF HIS LIFE—or so the AfterBerners like to yell. (And a bird landed on his podium, so take that!)

Did anyone watch State of the Union today? (I didn’t.) Wonder what drivel was spouted by Nina Turner—who many Berners say would be a GREAT candidate in 2020 (along with Tulsi Gabbard—ugh and double ugh.)

re: #43 Charles Johnson

That’s exactly what it is - an insult.

I’m late to the conversation, but this is my all time favorite anecdote/tweet exchange on the topic:
