Imagine needing to hide your true beliefs just to keep a job you hated. Now imagine your job was producing the biggest show on the biggest cable news channel in America, and youÃ¢ÂÂll get a sense of what life was like for Joe Muto. As a self-professed bleeding-heart, godless liberal, JoeÃ¢ÂÂs viewpoints clearly didnÃ¢ÂÂt mesh with his employerÃ¢ÂÂespecially his direct supervisor, Bill OÃ¢ÂÂReilly.
So he did what any ambitious, career-driven person would do. He destroyed his career, spectacularly. He became GawkerÃ¢ÂÂs so-called Fox Mole.
JoeÃ¢ÂÂs posts on Gawker garnered more than 2.5 million hits in one week. He released footage and information that Fox News never wanted exposed, including some extremely unflattering footage of Mitt Romney. The dragnet closed around him quicklyÃ¢ÂÂhe was fired within thirty-six hoursÃ¢ÂÂso his best material never made it online. Unfortunate for his career as the Fox Mole, but a treasure trove for book readers.
An Atheist in the FOXhole has everything that liberals and Fox haters could desire: details about how FoxÃ¢ÂÂs right-wing ideology is promoted throughout the channel; why specific angles and personalities are the only ones broadcasted; the bizarre stories Fox anchors actually believed (and passed on to the public); and tales of behind-the-scenes mayhem and mistakes, all part of reporting FoxÃ¢ÂÂs version of the news.
About: The âFox Moleââwhose dispatches for Gawker made headlines in Businessweek, The Hollywood Reporter, and even on The New York Times websiteâdelivers a funny, opinionated memoir of his eight years at the unfair, unbalanced Fox News Channel working as an associate producer for Bill O'Reilly.
