Suspended Fox News host Eric Bolling has initiated a $50 million lawsuit against HuffPost reporter Yashar Ali, after Ali released a report last Friday claiming Bolling sent unwanted, inappropriate text messages to female colleagues at Fox News in the past.

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson talks with NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik (@davidfolkenflik) about what the suit means for the two parties involved, and for their media organizations.

This segment aired on August 10, 2017.
