Dispatches from a Fox News mole confirms everyone’s prejudices

by | 10th, April 2012

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.
