Carson Daly Joins Today Show (TVNewser)
Carson Daly is joining the Today show as the host of what NBC calls a first-of-its-kind digital studio, dubbed the Orange Room. Daly will continue to host The Voice, and NBC’s New Year’s Eve special, but is giving up Last Call as NBC decides the fate of that late, late show. Daly has also signed a first-look development deal with NBC for scripted and alternative programs under his Daly Productions banner. Reuters Today is revamping its show as it tries to retake the ratings lead it held for decades, adding Daly and a new set to lure back viewers. The hub of the show will be a new set, which features a desk area for hosts that can rotate 360 degrees, state-of-the-art weather screens for Roker, bright orange couches, and Daly’s new digital set, which will allow him to chat with guests after they appear on the main set. Today.com “When I got the call about being permanently on Today and launching the Orange Room, it was like a dream come true,” Daly told us earlier this week. “You know that scene in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, where Charlie peels back the wrapper and finds the golden ticket? I felt like I got the golden ticket.” FishbowlNY Shama Hussain, who recently moved over from New York magazine to NBC News as social media communications manager, was all over the Orange news Thursday morning.

Gawker’s Fox News Mole Identifies Himself, Promises More Excruciatingly Boring Posts [Updated]

And just like that, it was over. Gawker’s lackluster Fox News Mole has been fired by Fox, and revealed his identity. He is Joe Muto (pictured), a longtime producer for “The O’Reilly Factor.”

Muto revealed himself with a post explaining that he had been brought in by Dianne Brandi, Fox News’ Executive Vice President of Legal and Business Affairs, and questioned about the whole thing. Muto was caught because he had used his work computer to access sources for two videos that were shown on Gawker. Smart!

Of course Muto, attempting to continue to be relevant, says he has much more in store for all of us:

I am a weasel, a traitor, a sell-out and every bad word you can throw at me… but as of today, I am free, and I am ready to tell my story, which I wasn’t able to fully do for the previous 36 hours.

Fantastic. We simply can’t wait to read what’s next. Will it be a scintillating story about the cafeteria tater tots? Or maybe an exposé on Shepard Smith’s socks?

Maddow: Is Fox a News Station?

Rachel Maddow points out,”Expression of an opinion of the new reporters cover is, frankly sometimes part of covering the news.” She plays clips of Anderson Cooper and Shepard Smith after Hurricane Katrina.

Maddow then shows a promo of the Tax Party Protests,”The difference between Fox and news is Fox is actively promoting a protest against the US government.” She then points out mustache man John Stossel, recently hire by Fox is touring the country headlining forums against health care reform.

Maddow adds,”One of these things is really not like the other.”
