Fox’s mole…or how a totaltarian regime deals with information


Yes, this is a little old. I was travelling and visiting sick family at the time… but a fascinating story.

So earlier this month an employee at Fox Joe Muto, published over at Gawker for a couple days as “the fox mole”, revealing some rather boring insider information about working at Fox. Fox’s response- to ruthlessly hunt him down and fire him.

And now he has been raided by police at the behest of Fox. With them taking his Iphone and laptop.

As much as they like to paint the left as communists, marxists, socialists… they sure do seem like a totaltarian regime, terrified of ANY information, no matter how innocuous, that does not have their stamp of approval.

And lets not even delve into the whole corruption and phone hacking scandal Murdoch and company are embroiled in…

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
