think wanting to conceal your real ideals simply to hold a task you hated. Now think your activity was once generating the most important express at the greatest cable information channel in the USA, and you’ll get a feeling of what existence used to be like for Joe Muto. As a self-professed bleeding-heart, godless liberal, Joe’s viewpoints essentially didn’t mesh along with his employer—especially his direct manager, invoice O’Reilly.

So he did what any bold, career-driven individual might do. He destroyed his profession, spectacularly. He grew to become Gawker’s so-called Fox Mole.

Joe’s posts on Gawker garnered greater than 2.5 million hits in a single week. He published pictures and knowledge that Fox information by no means sought after uncovered, together with a few tremendous unflattering pictures of Mitt Romney.
