Gawker received a threatening letter from Fox News attorneys over the mole, former O'Reilly Factor associate producer, Joe Muto. It's a demand that any and all material given to them by Muto be returned to Fox. "Be advised that Muto's admissions are admissions of likely criminal and civil wrongdoing on both his and Gawker's part, which will be the subject of further extensive investigation. Fox News will pursue its rights and remedies in the appropriate legal forums." Fortunately for the rest of us, it doesn't look like Gawker is exactly quaking in its boots. The headline of their post about it is: Here’s a Picture of Bill O’Reilly With a Topless Woman Along With the Fox News Legal Threat Meant to Quash It
Gawker says it will explain "later" where the photo - which looks quite old - came from.
Stay tuned... We certainly will be!
By his own logic, Fox News is in a state of frozen terror of the left.
From a legal standpoint, anything taken from Fox “News” without their consent, could be grounds for dismissal and legal action.
The way you work around this is get the information outside News Corporation. Legally, they cannot say you took it from inside their building because, you haven’t. Therefore, it’s your property, and there is no signed agreement between Fox “News” and the employee. There are legal loopholes, and we know them.
Nixon-trainee Roger Ailes and company are afraid of us. We expose their dirt on a regularly basis, and there is nothing he can do about it.
What’s coming down the pipe for Fox “News” and News Corporation will be far worse than what Gawker posts.
The U.K. attorney filed claims against News Corporation in New York. Theses claims are from the hacking scandal. Our media partners will have a field day with this one.
NOTE TO AILES
You shouldn’t worry yourself with Gawker, you should worry yourself about Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin. Their loyal followers have stopped watching Fox “News” Channel.
How about a legal action against Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum? They publicly denounced Fox “News” and you. Oh, that’s right. You are afraid of the backlash from conservatives.
Good luck with the browser issue, I run a VM with a vanilla install just for some sites: Fox Nation hates my normal settings.
I say “for now” because he might be running small items to embarass them and actually have something big in the wings. Who knows? The story behind that picture might be something big- the network did threaten legal action over it.
Now, if he comes out with detailed information of FoxNews bribing law enforcement and politicians, wiretapping phones, and hacking computers like Rupert Murdoch’s other “news” organizations, well, let’s have it, then!
