Oh, too sad. Their only child. :crying:
According to New York Magazine contributor, Yashar Ali, the son of former Fox News host Eric Bolling has died.

“Very sad news, Eric Bolling’s son, who was only 19, died last night. By all accounts, Eric was incredibly devoted to his son. Heartbreaking,” tweeted Ali Saturday afternoon.

Mediaite reports that they have confirmed from a source close to the family that Eric Chase, Bolling’s son passed away Friday evening and that he was Bolling’s only child.

No further details have been provided.

On Friday, Fox News parted ways with Bolling over sexual harassment claims.

While this story says no details about cause, the right wing other sources are saying suicide. :(

This is so tragic. I hope the media leaves the family alone through this.

He didn't commit suicide because his dad got fired, did he? That makes no sense to me.

The Boulder Daily Camera has this story that indicates it was not a suicide.

CU Boulder student's death mourned by father, ousted Fox News host
Former Fox news personality Eric Bolling was expressing grief online Saturday over the death of his son, whom a University of Colorado official said was a student at the school.

Eric Chase Bolling's father, Eric Bolling, announced on Twitter that authorities told him that “there is no sign of self harm at this point. Autopsy will be next week. Please respect our grieving period.”

“Adrienne and I are devastated by the loss of our beloved son Eric Chase last night,” he said in an earlier tweet. “Details still unclear. Thoughts, prayers appreciated.”

The coroner's office announced in a news release on Saturday evening that it was investigating the death of a 19-year-old man found in an apartment building near the 28th Street Frontage Road and Village Drive but did not release the man's identity. The release stated that the man's cause and manner of death is still being investigated.

NYT: Fox News Guest Says Rape Allegation Blacklisted Her:
Fox News, which for more than a year has dealt with the fallout from an embarrassing sexual harassment scandal, was sued on Monday by the political commentator Scottie Nell Hughes, who claimed that she had been raped by the longtime anchor Charles Payne and was then retaliated against by the network after she came forward with her allegation.

Mr. Payne, the host of “Making Money” on Fox Business, returned to the air this month after the network suspended him in July pending an investigation into his conduct. Upon his return, the network said that it had completed the investigation, which began after Ms. Hughes took her allegations to the network in late June.

* * *

In her lawsuit, Ms. Hughes said that Mr. Payne had “pressured” his way into her hotel room in July 2013 and coerced her to have sexual intercourse with him, even though she had refused his advances by telling him “no” and “stop.”

According to the suit, Ms. Hughes was “shocked and ashamed” and did not immediately report the episode. She said that over the next two years she was forced to engage in a sexual relationship with Mr. Payne. In exchange, she said, she received career opportunities, including increased appearances on Fox News and Fox Business and the promise that Mr. Payne would help her land a contributor contract, a job that can pay several hundred thousand dollars a year. Ms. Hughes never became a paid contributor at either channel.

Ms. Hughes, a regular guest on Fox News and Fox Business from 2013 through 2016, asserted that after she ended the relationship with Mr. Payne, the network blacklisted her. After she reported her allegations against him, she said, the network leaked a story to the news media about a romantic affair between Ms. Hughes and Mr. Payne.

Politico
Preet Bharara joins CNN as senior legal analyst

Preet Bharara, whom President Donald Trump fired as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, is joining CNN as a Senior Legal Analyst, POLITICO has learned.

Bharara was known for his media savvy on the job in Manhattan, and since leaving office in March has amassed nearly 440,000 Twitter followers. He also recently launched a podcast, “Stay Tuned With Preet.” On Wednesday’s episode, Bharara recalled how Trump initially requested he stay on as U.S. attorney shortly after the presidential election, and he also described his growing unease as the president-elect — and later president — broke with protocol by calling him directly on the phone.

“Had I not been fired, and had Donald Trump continued to cultivate a direct personal relationship with me, it’s my strong belief at some point, given the history, the president of the United States would’ve asked me to do something inappropriate,” Bharara said on the podcast. “And I would’ve resigned then. I don’t know for a fact, but that’s my strong belief.”

In addition to Bharara, CNN has also named Walter Shaub, the former director of the United States Office of Government Ethics, as a contributor. Upon resigning in July, Shaub said the U.S. government was now “pretty close to a laughingstock” when it came to ethics, a slide that could have global implications.
