If Fox think they've found the mole in their midst, they have not, the mole says.

At least one News Corporation employee is happy today.

The so-called Fox Mole, the Gawker media columnist who this week began writing an anonymous column about work at the GOP-leaning news broadcaster, announced today that he or she has not been caught, according to Gawker.

Mediate created a stir today when it reported that Fox News claimed it had smoked out the so-called mole and was considering legal action.

But in a subsequent post, the supposed mole writes: “So Fox's PR team has been telling people that they have ‘found’ me and are presently ‘exploring legal options.’ If Fox has smoked me out, it's news to me. I'm still here. Back to work.”

The Fox Mole wrote Tuesday in an inaugural column that he or she had taken a job at the broadcaster only because he/she needed a job but hoped soon to move on.

The content of the site became so objectionable, and the job hunt so dispiriting, that the employee finally took action.
