“Fox News mole” Joe Muto tweeted this morning that he was issued a search warrant today, and that his iPhone, laptop, and old notebooks were confiscated by law enforcement. Muto added that he was being charged with “grand larceny, among other things.”
The Muto story has to be one of the biggest liberal media fails in recent memory. Gawker paid Muto $5,000 for his scoops on Fox News – and Muto promptly revealed that Mitt Romney likes horses. Fox News CEO Roger Ailes brought the hammer down on Muto immediately, uncovering the mole within 24 hours; he commented, “the mole shows a culture that believes in theft, a lack of loyalty, turning on his colleagues, lying to management, and there are some real, ethical, serious questions about it.”
As it turns out, Ailes was quite serious about Muto’s “theft” – and Muto will now face the possibility of prosecution. The Fox News mole has been whacked.
