The Fox News Mole — Revealed

He’s Joe Muto, an associate producer on “The O’Reilly Factor.” For two days he has written anonymously on Gawker about Fox News’ cheap surroundings and the lack of privacy in the public restrooms, and was responsible for video of Mitt Romney talking about show horses with Sean Hannity before they went on the air in February. Muto also blasted Fox Nation’s coverage of President Obama’s 50th birthday, as they called it a “hip hop barbecue” with the presence of a number of African American celebrities.

Muto writes, “They nailed me.

“In the end, it was the digital trail that gave me away. They knew that someone, using my computer login, had accessed the sources for two videos that ended up on Gawker over the past few weeks. They couldn’t prove it entirely, but I was pretty much the only suspect.

“I denied it, which is why they didn’t fire me outright. But two nice gentlemen from security escorted me to my desk to pack up my stuff, and it was pretty obvious at that point that I would not be setting foot back into 1211 Avenue of the Americas again.”

Fox News reportedly is considering legal action.
