The Fox Mole's 15 Minutes of Fame Have Come to an End
On Tuesday, the Fox Mole wrote his inaugural post on Gawker, which included some unremarkable footage of Mitt Romney bantering with Sean Hannity during a break in an interview. The consensus on Ricochet was that, if anything, the footage compelled folks to like Romney a little better – or to dislike him a little less, as the case may be.
Then on Wednesday, the Fox Mole complained about News Corp bathrooms.
And by Wednesday evening, Fox Mole had been outed and fired. From his last post, a confession that's sure to serve him well as he tries to salvage his reputation and career prospects:
I am a weasel, a traitor, a sell-out and every bad word you can throw at me... but as of today, I am free, and I am ready to tell my story, which I wasn't able to fully do for the previous 36 hours.
The Fox Mole's real identity: Joe Muto. And it turns out Mr. Muto accepted just $5,000 to commit career hara-kiri.
