AN ATHEIST IN THE FOXHOLE describes how Muto, an NPR-listening, Obama-loving liberal, took a job at Fox News expecting he’d only stay for a few months.

Obviously: “Fox News Mole” Joe Muto served with search warrant
"According to the warrant, Fox News is apparently accusing me of grand larceny, amongst other things." Muto confirmed the warrant and seizure of several personal items in a series of posts on Twitter. He remains an employee of Gawker Media, who plan to provide him with legal support, and seems to be taking the news in stride. Muto did not, however, specify what other charges he faces. COO Gaby Darbyshire confirmed that Gawker Media had not been served as of this posting. Coincidentally, while the DA’s office was serving the warrant against Joe Muto, Rupert Murdoch faced a fresh round of ethics questions in the UK. source
