Gawker Lands the Fox Mole: Enlists Anonymous Fox News Informant
The online news magazine based out of New York and owned by innovator Nick Denton has seemingly found the holy grail of contributors.
While many have been waiting for that former Fox News employee to write that tell-all book with all the juicy details, Gawker is offering something better. An anonymous current Fox News employee will be writing a regular column for Gawker.
Nick Denton has proven to be brilliant not just at presenting the news, but also at becoming the news.
The anonymous writer who is referred to as the Fox Mole wrote his first column on Tuesday.
He begins by suggesting that due to the fact that he was a Fox News employee, he is considered undesirable to other news organizations. Essentially he claims that he is now blacklisted.
In addition to explaining how he came to the decision to report on his controversial employer, he also leaks a video of Mitt Romney and Sean Hannity talking before an interview.
The two have a discussion about riding horses. Although it is nothing too scandalous the following demonstrates the style of this person who could become a liberal's best friend;
"Now there's nothing wrong with Mitt and his wife loving horseback riding. But remember this video next time Romney attacks Obama for golfing. The inherent elitism and snootiness of golf is NOTHING compared to competitive horseback riding. And I think Mitt loses points with the GOP base for his correct pronunciation of dressage. To GOP-voter ears it sounds not only gay, but even worse, French."This new mystery columnist represents a tremendous amount of potential for Gawker. The story has mystery, deception and the possibility of shedding new light on one of our largest and most controversial news organizations.
