The Washington Post reports that the chief executive of the Greenwood-based radio station, Larry Fuss, fully believes David and not Taylor, which is primarily why he chose to hire him.

'I sat down with him face-to-face in Minneapolis before I offered him the job and talked to him about it, ' Fuss said to the New York Daily News. "When he explains the Taylor Swift incident, he's either the world's best liar, or he's telling the truth", Fuss said. Mueller later said that Swift wasn't a "hero" for testifying against him in court.

Swift, 28, countersued for assault and battery and won a symbolic $1 judgment against Mueller, then pledged to financially support sexual assault survivors' causes. After being fired from his radio station, Mueller sued Swift alleging that the pop star, her mother and her radio liaison, Frank Bell, were deliberately trying to destroy his career. However, Swift stressed that what happened was a definite grab. "Most of the response I have seen this morning - there's been quite a few on our Facebook page, and none of it is radio people, none of it is local people in Mississippi". It's all originating from some Taylor Swift fan group somewhere.

Oh, and a fan on Tumblr actually found the station's advertisers HERE!

Fuss said that he believes Mueller is innocent, and that he deserves a second chance.

Stonewall Jackson, Mueller's chosen pseudonym, is the name of a Confederate general who served during the American Civil War.

Fuss admitted that even Mueller himself thought the hiring was little more than a publicity stunt at first, but emphasized that he believes in Mueller's innocence. "My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard", the singer said in a statement, acknowledging her ability to "shoulder the enormous cost" of defending herself.

Some of the employees at Mueller's new station were initially skeptical of the hiring, but Fuss says all of them - including the women - are now fine with it after meeting him.
