The fellow’s name is Joe Muto and now we know why he can’t get a job anywhere else in the industry. It’s not because he is “blackballed” because he works at Fox. It’s because he is a liar, a thief, and a lazy, unambitious clock puncher.
After 8 years working at Fox, he rose from production assistant to associate producer. Eight years? A real up and comer this one. If I were a news executive at another network and I saw the lack of promotion after 8 years, I’d question everything about this fellow – including his work ethic and character.
No matter – the “mole” is hardly in a position to bring down the network, much less dish on the inner workings of the editorial staff. As it is, Fox easily figured out who the mole was – Mr. Muto evidently isn’t very bright – and canned him:
Two hours ago I was called into a meeting with Dianne Brandi, the Fox News Executive Vice President of Legal and Business Affairs and suspended indefinitely… with pay, oddly enough.
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.
