    I thought Eric to be a wonderful Man who was mistreated by being let go and behind it was I had heard Hillary..She was upset for his Truth spoken in his Book : THE SWAMP I pray she was not harassing his son for I would not put it past her.. Why I feel would a Healthy young man from a good father suddenly do such a thing the day his father was let go.
    I would like Eric to know he is Loved by many and sending Comfort to him as well as his family for God is with them. His son is at peace in our Lords Home. WE would love to see ERIC back in time with FOX NEWS!

    I hope the alt-left is proud of them selves for causing this tragedy. They think that they can attack any conservative and it’s just fun and games. Well, this is the kind of thing that can result when you ruin someone reputation in public just because you don’t agree with his political views.

    This tragedy started with the idiot brothers at FOX and grew from there. This death is on their hands and on the hands of the evil lowlife lousy liberals seeking to take revenge on the good people at Fox that tell the truth and put down evil.

    How dare you allow this trolling “press” writer be the one to report this? You have no idea what your lies have done to this family. Where is the proof? Identify the pictures. What scum. Fox tells the truth. Yet those who tell the truth, O’Reilly, Payne, Hannity, Bolling…..all men by the way, are accused of the worst of the worst “he said, she said”. Yet there has not been one trial, no one cleared of any of the charges….just continued hate. My condolences to the Bolling family. May God bless you and protect you.

    I wonder if he was cyber bullied? My gut tells me he was and maybe taunted in his face. He went to the University of Colorado. Kids and the news media can be so cruel to young people.
