Fox News Executive Vice President John Moody has retired from the network, weeks after a controversial column where he criticized the U.S. Olympic Committee for being concerned with having a “Darker, Gayer and Different” Olympic team. As opposed to fielding a team with the best group of athletes. A spokeswoman at fox News confirmed Moody’s retirement, according to Variety.The trouble started as the Winter Olympics in PeyongChang, South Korea, geared up. Moody penned an editorial criticizing the Olympics committee for using the games as a platform for advancing a “diversity” agenda, instead of keeping their minds on the sports they were ostensibly in South Korea to perform. In his February 8 Op-Ed, Moody pleaded for sportsmen to forget about race and sexual orientation and to focus only on the superior abilities athletes bring to the games.

In six short months I've lost my father and, as an only child, have grappled with caring for my mom. All of this while trying to analyze polls, assist a great law firm, continue a long-planned move to Florida and continue "Newsvesting." Clearly, something has to give. Sadly, the "give" is this 15-year-old syndicated column. Not because I don't love it. But because it deserves the research and time I will no longer be able to give it. While I never reached the readership levels of famed columnists, I did strive to tell it like it is from outside the D.C. Beltway.

We’re talking about First World NFL Ancillary Activity problems. If things work out, though, it could be a very cool thing for everyone. The setup: The Wounded Warriors Amputee Flag Football team, which consists of military personnel who have lost limbs while serving the USA over the past 15 years, has played an annual benefit game before the last five Super Bowls. The opposition consists of former NFL players–which in the past has included such Hall of Famers as Roger Staubach and Anthony Munoz–and the occasional show business celebrity such as Snoop … [Read more...] about Super Bowl 50 Countdown–15 Weeks To Go: Oh, no!
