Shocking! FOXNEWS Gawker Mole Fired
Fox News on Wednesday said it was firing an employee who had anonymously posted videos and comments about behind-the-scenes workdays at the television network, leading media website Gawker to dub him the "mole."Here's the Gawker post.
Joe Muto, who had worked as an associate producer on commentator Bill O'Reilly's show at Fox, began his postings on social media websites on Tuesday, and Gawker then began publishing "installments" from the "mole" on its website.
After being suspended, Muto posted a picture of himself late on Wednesday afternoon inside Gawker's office saying "It's Me, Joe: The Fox Mole."
Two hours ago I was called into a meeting with Dianne Brandi, the Fox News Executive Vice President of Legal and Business Affairs and suspended indefinitely... with pay, oddly enough.Well that went well didn't it?
They nailed me.
I am a weasel, a traitor, a sell-out and every bad word you can throw at me....
And I'm sure the crazy blog money will replace the salary and benefits he earned at FOX.
WTF am I saying? No it won't.
