For almost eight years, Joe Muto worked for Fox News Channel. He spent much of that time as a producer for conservative talk show host Bill O’Reilly. But Muto didn’t share the political opinions of his boss or his employer. He was an Obama-loving, godless, bleeding-heart liberal. In a new book, Muto takes us behind the scenes at Fox News to reveal the inner-workings of one of America’s most popular media outlets, how it drives a message and how fair and balanced its approach really is. Muto’s book is called An Atheist in the Foxhole, and he joins us on Thursday to talk about it.
Joe Muto worked for Fox News Channel for almost eight years before starting an anonymous column about the network for Gawker.com. He'd come to known as the "Fox News mole." His first book is called An Atheist in the FOXhole: A Liberal's Eight-Year Odyssey Inside the Heart of the Right-Wing Media. [Amazon/Indiebound]. You can follow Joe on Twitter at @JoeMuto.
