|Gawker's recently exposed "mole" inside Fox News on Sunday explained why he dished about the company he "couldn't stand" to work for anymore.
In an interview with Howard Kurtz on CNN's Reliable Sources, Joe Muto -- who, until he was discovered as the Fox News "mole," was an associate producer at Fox -- said his blog posts were a "primal scream from a longtime Fox employee who just couldn't take it anymore. I could not take it one more day in that place."
Well, he got his wish. Late last week, Fox News fired Muto and threatened legal action against him and Gawker, accusing both of "civil and criminal wrongdoing." Muto's digital trail ultimately did him in. "I think their legal accusations are completely baseless and they're trying to intimidate me into silence because I'm revealing unflattering information about the inner workings of the company," Muto said.
