Fox News ‘Mole’ Joe Muto got a Book Deal
Friday, May 4, 2012
Joe Muto got ‘fame’ as being the infamous “Fox Mole” and now he has signed a deal with Dutton to write a book about his experiences of working at Fox News.
The title of the book will be An Atheist in the Foxhole.
According to a press release, the book, “describes how Muto, an NPR-listening, Obama-loving liberal, took a job at Fox News expecting he’d only stay for a few months. But eight years later he was still there, working as a producer for Bill O’Reilly, a man with “fair and balanced” views that made Muto cringe on a daily basis.”
Dutton has described the book as being “in the vein of classics like Liar’s Poker and How to Lose Friends and Alienate People” that brings “readers inside the heart of a cultural institution that some love and some love to hate.”
Muto gained fame on April 10 when he started anonymously blogging about Fox News for Gawker as the “Fox Mole,” where he gossiped about the conservative news channel. Within one day, Fox News figured out Muto was the Mole and his eight-year tenure at the news channel—where he’d risen from production assistant to an associate producer on the O’Reilly Factor—was ended.
Fox News has made legal claims against Muto for larceny and computer tampering.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s office seized his computer and iphone as part of the investigation.
