Where would you put the comma?

Froomkin is a careful writer

But, this sentence needs a comma.

"But beyond the snarky implication that Fox News has become the semi-official network of the Republican Party lies the reality that Fox has been far more successful than the White House communications office at packaging a vision in which Bush is a hero."

Where would you put it, before or after "lies"?

Latter option does leave the sentence slightly incomplete in interesting ways.

I disagree that the sentence needs a comma. I'd get rid of the coordinating conjunction at the start of the structure, but I'd leave it alone after that. I can't think of a comma rule to dictate where to put punctuation in that sentence....
