Some Loser Who Works at Fox Decides to Be a Mole for Gawker; Update: Mole Removed

Posted by on Apr 11, 2012 at 8:09 am

Geez, can this be any more pathetic?

What follows is the inaugural column of a person we are calling The Fox Mole—a long-standing, current employee of Fox News Channel who will be providing Gawker with regular dispatches from inside the organization.

I always intended to keep my mouth shut. The plan was simple: get hired, keep my head down and my views to myself, work for a few months, build my resume, then eventually hop to a new job that didn’t make me cringe every morning when I looked in the mirror.

That was years ago. My cringe muscles have turned into crow’s feet. The ten resumes a month I was sending out dwindled into five, then two, then one, then zero. No one wants me. I’m blacklisted.

I work at Fox News Channel.

The final straw for me came last year. Oddly, it wasn’t anything on TV that turned me rogue, though plenty of things on our air had pushed me in that direction over the years. But what finally broke me was a story on The Fox Nation. If you’re not a frequenter of Fox Nation (and if you’re reading Gawker, it’s a pretty safe bet you’re not) I can describe it for you — it’s like an unholy mashup of the Drudge Report, the Huffington Post and a Klan meeting. Word around the office is that the site was actually the brainchild of Bill O’Reilly’s chief stalker (and Gawker pal) Jesse Watters.

So they planned to only work there for a brief period of time, but what do you know, they clearly don’t have enough skills to snag a better job elsewhere. So what’s the plan? Collect a paycheck and undermine your employer.

If this person really exists and had any guts he or she would resign if they’re so offended by Fox Nation. But no, instead they whore themselves out for a gossip rag.

Update: The dumbass has already been busted by Fox. D’oh!

“We found the person and we’re exploring legal options at this time.”

    “I’m blacklisted. I work at Fox News Channel”

    How do you get stupid enough to put those two things together and still think that the Democrats are the good people? You’re probably blacklisted because you’re an incompetent who’s not quite bad enough to be worth the hassle of firing and replacing.

    What liberal bias? Naw, just a myth that liberal bias thing. Move along. Nothing to see here.

    >>> No one wants me. I’m blacklisted. I work at Fox News Channel.

    Assuming this guy is telling the truth, that is incredibly damning to the other news networks to which he is applying.

    He works for the most successful news network, and the other networks consider him blacklisted for that?

    Imagine if you worked at Google or Apple as a tech guy, and you applied for a job at Gateway or something and they said you were blacklisted for it.

    Anyways, who knows if the guy even works at Fox… all he leaked was this video. The 2/3 of the column about the Fox News Website isn’t exactly insider knowledge.

    Guy (or gal) probably wants to get fired.
    If you work at fox, no one in the MSM will touch you. If you were fired from fox, you get tenure at media matters

    Sounds to me like Obanana and Axlerod’s “truth” team is at the beginning stages of their bridge building.
