Staff Reviews

This is the hysterical true story of Joe Muto, a typical liberal
just-out-of-college kid, who as a fluke sent in a resume to Fox News
Corp. – and ended up working for 8 years in the trenches of Fox News in
NYC, eventually working on the O’Reilly Factor. The book alternates
between Joe’s last day when he was finally booted and the story of how
Fox News operates and Joe’s years inside, trying to fit in and learn to
cope with his own feelings and the opinions of the Fox Network. This
book is incredibly funny and informative.

Hilariously details the inner workings of the cable news network. "The Daily Beast"
After college, Joe Muto a self-professed bleeding-heart, godless liberal took an entry-level position at Fox News. Joe kept quiet about his political views and initially enjoyed the newsroom camaraderie. But after he began working for Bill O Reilly Fox's number one talking head Joe just couldn t take it anymore. He went rogue by becoming "Gawker s" Fox Mole, and was outed (and fired) in thirty-six hours.
Reminiscent of "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, An Atheist in the FOXhole" is filled with hilarious, untold tales that will appall and delight the millions who love to hate FOX news.
