Fox News mole has been dug up; Update: Or HAS it?

In case you missed it, Gawker published its first dispatch yesterday from its “mole” at Fox News headquarters in New York. This was riveting stuff, and Gawker was pleased as punch with itself.

Today, we were treated to an exposé on the Fox News bathrooms.

Well, unfortunately for Gawker, it looks like the jig might be up.

A Fox News spokesperson revealed to Mediaite and told us that they have already discovered the mole’s identity.

Here is the brief statement from the spokesperson:

“We found the person and we’re exploring legal options at this time.”

And Twitter was all over it:



Hmmm … the person calling him or herself the “mole” has just put up another post claiming he or she has yet to be outed.

Are you convinced the mole remains underground?

In any event, we’re pretty the actual dirt dug up by an actual mole would be a lot more interesting than anything Gawker’s “insider” has to say.

Doesn’t the mole know that he/she should be leaking stuff that makes Fox look like the 1 percent, not the 99 percent?

CRAPPY BATHROOMS = wrong message

      I’m thinking 
      Santita Jackson or Juan Williams or 
      Bob Beckel.

      Libs have no trouble with ethical considerations and such…

    Here’s a fun line from the mole’s first dispatch: “The inherent elitism and snootiness of golf is NOTHING compared to competitive horseback riding.”  Wow, talk about someone not having a clue.  I come from a middle class family; I had a niece who did competitive horseback riding in high school.  I also know at least three people here in Atlanta who participate in the sport; none are wealthy elitists.  The mole is somebody who has spent his entire life in a place like Manhattan and doesn’t know anything about the world beyond the Hudson.

    Twitchy needs to pay closer attention to the topics of their posts… the guy is outed, he is fired, and he is publicly lamenting his life on Gawker.

    Seek out the first smelly hippie that you come across and you’ll have your mole evey time.
