Dispatches from a Fox News mole confirms everyone’s prejudices
EVER wondered what it’s like to work at Fox News? Then this new column over at Gawker will fill you in.
“The Fox Mole”, an anonymous long-time employee of Fox News Channel, according to Gawker, will be posting dispatches from within the organisation. In the first column, the mole, a self-described left-winger, suggests that working at Fox has made him/her undesirable to other employers and that Fox’s audience is full of racists.
The mole will certainly fuel the imaginations of those liberals who view Fox as the Evil Network; the first dispatch confirms all the usual stereotypes about Fox and its fans.
But in claiming (pretty unconvincingly) that the only reason he or she can’t get a job anywhere else because the rest of the media “blacklists” Fox staff, the mole will also confirm some conservatives’ stereotypes of the mainstream, liberal media.
