An Atheist in the Foxhole: A Liberal's Eight-Year Odyssey Inside the Heart of the Right-Wing Media Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The “Fox Mole”—whose dispatches for Gawker made headlines in Businessweek, The Hollywood Reporter, and even on The New York Times website—delivers a funny, opinionated memoir of his eight years at the unfair, unbalanced Fox News Channel working as an associate producer for Bill O'Reilly.

Imagine needing to hide your true beliefs just to keep a job you hated. Now imagine your job was producing the biggest show on the biggest cable news channel in America, and youll get a sense of what life was like for Joe Muto. As a self-professed bleeding-heart, godless liberal, Joes viewpoints clearly didnt mesh with his employer—especially his direct supervisor, Bill OReilly.

So he did what any ambitious, career-driven person would do. He destroyed his career, spectacularly. He became Gawkers so-called Fox Mole.

Joes posts on Gawker garnered more than 2.5 million hits in one week. He released footage and information that Fox News never wanted exposed, including some extremely unflattering footage of Mitt Romney. The dragnet closed around him quickly—he was fired within thirty-six hours—so his best material never made it online. Unfortunate for his career as the Fox Mole, but a treasure trove for book readers.

An Atheist in the FOXhole has everything that liberals and Fox haters could desire: details about how Foxs right-wing ideology is promoted throughout the channel; why specific angles and personalities are the only ones broadcasted; the bizarre stories Fox anchors actually believed (and passed on to the public); and tales of behind-the-scenes mayhem and mistakes, all part of reporting Foxs version of the news.

Synopsis:

“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 OReilly—Foxs number one talking head—Joe just couldnt take it anymore. He went rogue by becoming Gawkers 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.

Synopsis:

From bestselling author and host of HBO's Real Time, Bill Maher's new book of political riffs serves up a savagely funny set of rules for preserving sanity in an insane world

A follow-up to the New York Times bestselling The New Rules, The New New Rules delivers a series of hilarious, intelligent rants on everything from same-sex marriage to healthcare, from Republican agendas to celebrity meltdowns, with all the razor-sharp insight that has made Bill Maher one of the most influential comedic voices shaping the political debate today. With another presidential campaign on the horizon and a stellar set of real- life characters to have fun with-andquot;New Rule: If Charlie Sheen's home life means he can't have a TV show, then I say Newt Gingrich can't be presidentandquot;-this enlightening and important book may be the best thing you pretend to read all year.
