CNN published an opinion piece on opioids by former Fox News host Eric Bolling. In it, an editor’s note was appended, saying, “Eric Bolling is a former anchor at Fox News. The opinions expressed in this commentary are his own.”
It made no mention of him being dismissed by his network over alleged sexual misconduct.
“Eric, our only child, died of an accidental opioid overdose at college. Eric Chase was a really good student at the University of Colorado. He was a social kid, liked to go to parties and had joined a fraternity. Over the year or so since he was in Colorado, Adrienne and I had discussed drug abuse with Eric Chase,” Bolling wrote.
“Most importantly for parents, “not my kid” syndrome is dangerous and deadly. I never thought I would be an expert on opioids. No way. After all — not my kid. Unfortunately I was wrong. Don’t be like me. While you still have time.”
In addition to his CNN op-ed, Bolling also appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe last week to discuss opioid addiction.
