The Fox News employee hired by Gawker to write about his experience inside the network has revealed himself as an associate producer on The OReilly Factor.
Joe Muto, who joined Fox News in 2004, says he has been suspended, with pay and was escorted out of Fox News headquarters today by two nice gentlemen from security.

And this puke expects praise and accolades for lacking even the basic amount of professional loyalty, morals and ethics. Just another scumbag gonna write a tell all book.
My main beef with Joe Muto, is not that he was a mole.
It’s that he evidently did nothing to stop O’Reilly from interupting his guests, and constantly talking about himself.
Yeah, but he dug deep and wrote a hard-hitting expose about the Fox news bathroom. Pic’s and all, very enlightening stuff.
But, but, but - O’Reilly is just “lookin’ out for the folks!”
Maybe Fox should sue the employee and Gawker... An employee owes a duty of loyalty to his/her employer.
I read his first two posts. All he found to complain about was the quality of the bathrooms, before they were remodeled. It’s not quite the stuff of a Pulitzer.
I wonder if Joe Muto was the O’Reilly staffer who put the hit on Free Republic with the manufactured comments in that ambush interview I walked in to several years ago?
The irony is he just destroyed any credibility it might have had.
If it is, it makes oreilly even more naive and stupid then he already is. Allowing himself to be used in order to marginalize conservatives. I would bet he likely is that architect as well as others he could shape Bill’s interviews with.
Fox would have to be idiotic to not include clauses in their employment contracts that are standard for many businesses today. For example:
1) Non-competition agreement. For a given number of years you cannot work for a competitor.
2) The company owns all patents and copyrights and derivatives created while in their employ. “Go ahead and write a tell all book. We will get all the gross profits from it. You and the publisher get nothing.”
3) The company owns all proprietary information that could be of benefit to our competitors.
4) All contract disputes must be settled in binding arbitration, in a place and by an arbitrator chosen by the company.
That segment was nothing like it was presented to me in the pre-interview that was done with someone else with the Factor.
Nope, no spin there, not even part of a revolution.
He was definitely not looking out for BOR!
“Worked on The OReilly Factor”
Now there is a surprise.... </sarc>
I saw a TV show about Gawker, so I had a look at the website. Had never seen it before. It is pathetic. Half its stories seem to be about homosexuals and its hyper-active language must be written by high-schoolers.
It has failure written all over it. Why some loser would sacrifice his career to be part of it is beyond me.
I Am the Fox Mole, And Im Still Here
Complaining about bathrooms is consistent with someone full of s***.
Was Gawker his employer?
Use corporate espionage laws against him. He probably violated his employee contract with Fox News somewhere along the line with the undisclosed employment.
I hear Muto spent a lot of time sitting in the Fox News bathroom.
No, but Gawker incited him to breach his duty. See Food Lion v. ABC...
Food Lion eventually lost, but only because they couldn’t show damages.
My news writing was once nominated for a Pulitzer. All I can tell you is Pulitzers aren't what they used to be! I think Muto's bathroom expose qualifies for the new bottom-of-the-barrel Pulitzer standard. He may even be awarded a Nobel Prize for literature as a companion to Obamao's Peace Prize.
