Fox News Mole Joe Muto Enters Courtroom in Handcuffs

By Chris Ariens on May 9, 2013 5:29 PM

In April 2012, while still a Fox News employee, Muto began writing stories for Gawker about life inside Fox News. He became known as the Fox News mole. After his identity was revealed, he was fired from Fox.

Muto must pay a $1,000 fine, the $5,000 he earned from Gawker which goes to a good cause, serve 10 days of community service assigned by the court, then 200 hours of community service at a nonprofit organization. He’s also not getting back is laptop taken during an early morning police search. Muto had worked at Fox News for 8 years, most recently as an AP on “O’Reilly Factor.”


Fox News mole Joe Muto entered a Manhattan courtroom in handcuffs this afternoon, pleading guilty to two misdemeanor charges.

A source inside the courtroom tells TVNewser two detectives escorted a cuffed Muto into the courtroom, sat him on a back bench and about 5 minutes later removed the handcuffs as he moved to the front of the courtroom to hear the judge read out the plea agreement. That part of the proceedings took about 20 minutes.

He’s since written a book about the experience, which comes out in a few weeks. One of the conditions of the agreement: if he is found to be in possession of any Fox News item, whether it be a key chain or an 80′s era image of Bill O’Reilly, Muto could be sent to jail for a year.

A Fox News spokesperson tells TVNewser, “We are very grateful to the Manhattan District Attorney’s office for their dogged pursuit of this case and for obtaining justice in this matter.”

8 Year Reporter, Denied 1st Amendment, had his computer taken and not returned. I guess there is some Foxnews Copy Right Protections going on here. We don't want Whistle Blowers and by the way we own all the thoughts you ever had while working for Foxnews.

  • This is crushing the Individual Spirit & Freedom.
  • This is like refusing to Publish War Crimes & Human Rights Abuses
  • This is Thought Control
  • This is like owning the Copy Rights to a persons DNA
  • This is like forcing Registration of all Seeds, and owning the DNA rights to Seeds
  • This is like saying... We control what you think, and how you act.
  • This is Repression
  • This is Corporate Rule of Courts & Citizens
  • This is like laws about Inter-racial Marriage, Abortion in Rape, Gay Sex, Religion, having a Garden, Selling Produce, Art, and against Traditions or Culture
  • This is like book Burning and Destroying Libraries
  • This is Neoliberalism, Neoclassical Economics, and American Style Capitalism
