Gawker Reportedly Hires Fox News Mole As Anonymous Writer

  • Twitter was abuzz with news that Gawker Media has hired a current employee at Fox News, working as a mole, feeding Gawker tidbits that proves the suspicion that the news organization has a conservative bias.

    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 supposed spy is not without a sense of humor:

    “So why not just leave Fox News?” you might ask. Good question! I’ve asked myself that same thing many times. And I am leaving. Sooner rather than later, I’m guessing. But I can’t just leave quietly, can I? Where’s the fun in that? So I’m John McClane-ing this shit. I’m inside the building, crawling through the air vents, gathering intel, and passing it along to Carl Winslow.

    The evidence that the anonymous mole will be leaking information (or “gifts” as he or she calls them) is video of playful pre-interview banner between Sean Hannity and Mitt Romney. The post concludes, “Watch this space for future dispatches from the Fox Mole.”
