‘Fox Mole’ At Gawker Is Revealed, Suspended

We had steered clear of this topic the past few days because his posts certainly haven’t been family-friendly material.

But now “The Fox Mole” who was filing dispatches for Gawker from inside Fox News Channel’s operations in New York City has been uncovered.

So if you’re interested in seeing what O’Reilly Factor associate producer Joe Muto had to say this week about what it’s like working for Fox News, you might start here. He doesn’t have a high opinion of what goes on there. Fair warning: There’s some graphic content and language.

His undoing, Muto says, was “the digital trail that gave me away” and led Fox executives to conclude he had been the source for two videos that showed up on Gawker. And yes, he concedes that he is “a weasel, a traitor, a sell-out and every bad word you can throw at me.”

Muto reports he’s been “suspended indefinitely … with pay, oddly enough.”
