Fox News Removes Exec´s "Darker,
Gayer" Olympics Column After Uproar

Hollywood Reporter, by Jeremy Barr

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/9/2018 6:12:39 PM

Fox News has removed an online column by executive vp and executive editor John Moody following intense criticism online and from gay rights activists, who roundly attacked the piece. "John Moody’s column does not reflect the views or values of FOX News and has been removed," the network said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Friday afternoon. Objecting to an effort to attract more diverse U.S. Olympians for the Winter games, Moody had written on Wednesday: "Unless it’s changed overnight, the motto of the Olympics, since 1894, has been ´Faster, Higher, Stronger.´ It appears the U.S. Olympic Committee

Comments:
What a bunch of cowards. It really is disgusting how quickly someone will react if there are objections from some leftist group. Everything stated in Moody´s original article is accurate. I don´t remember seeing articles removed if a conservative group complains, which seldom happens anyway. It´s only those on the left who are ALWAYS offended about something and demand removal. It´s really tiresome how everyone caves to their ridiculous demands. What happened to free speech? Oh that´s right......

He was right, but the “special interests” who dare not be named were ready to pounce.

It’s an athletic contest - a number of athletic contests. The best athletes should be selected with no attention to their ethnicity, skin color or gender choice.*

*One exception that I can think of: Men should not be able to say they are women so that they can compete against women.

You may think of others.

The team leader bragged about sending this dark, gay & different team.
Sadly this team lacks the strength, the discipline and the excellence to bag gold.
Maybe they will get special participation trophies from the US Olympic org.
Maybe even the cover of Wheaties.

How ridiculous. Anyone who actually read what he wrote would know the media was misquoting him. Too bad Fox News hasn´t learned from Trump how to stand up to this nonsense.

Free speech anymore, is like when we were 6 years old hiding under the bed practicing our swear words in private, lest Mom find out. But only for conservatives.

fta "... Fox News should open their site for diverse athletes to share their own personal stories and perspectives.” Nobody cares about their "personal stories" or their "perspectives", the only thing anyone cares about is did you win or did you lose? Nothing else matters at this level.

I think it has already started, but I believe in the past, perhaps on a non-international level. Men who have transformed into women, have sought participation in women´s golf, track and field, tennis and other sports. Next, I believe that pairs figure skating and ice dancing will start allowing to men to perform together , which would clearly out rank women and men pair skaters.

The only possible reason I can think of, other than the genetic and chromosonal (sp?)differences is that there are many countries who would likely boycott the Olympics if they allowed it because of total lack of parity, massive fraud in chemical abuse and many countries are against this for social, religious and political reasons and the US and parts of Western Europe would not be able to sway these countries to our liberal policies.

Diversity has no place in the Olympics. For example diversity does not exist in the NBA, nor NFL.

Where´s Honest James...? Fox News is still part of 21stCentFox...he should be popping off like he did at Charlottesville.

Is he already hanging out at the 33rd Degree in Anaheim, plotting his next move?

If this doesn´t reflect the views or values of FOX News, then I´m happy to say I don´t watch them any longer. The Olympics is not a representative body. It is supposed to be a competition of the best, without regard to race, gender or sexual orientation.

A Florida state lawmaker’s aide was fired late Tuesday, hours after he claimed two survivors of last week’s school shooting in Parkland, Fla., who had appeared on television were actors. Benjamin Kelly, an aide to state Rep. Shawn Harrison (R), emailed a Tampa Bay Times reporter after students Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg appeared on CNN to call for legislation to curb gun violence. According to Tampa Bay Times reporter Alex Leary, the staffer emailed him, saying, "Both kids in the picture are not students here but actors that travel to various crisis when they happen." The comments drew condemnation from Sen. Marco

What is the FBI hiding in
its war to protect Comey?

As the James Comey saga continues to unfold, the James Comey legend continues to unravel. The more we learn about his involvement in the deep state’s illicit targeting of President Trump, the more reason the American people have to question both his motives and his management as director of the FBI, the now-disgraced agency he headed before Trump fired him on May 9, 2017. Comey has left a trail of suspicious activities in his wake. Comey now looms large over a burgeoning constitutional crisis that could soon overshadow Watergate at its worst. To deepen the crisis even further, it now

Mark Janus has worked for years as an Illinois state employee, and pays about $550 annually to the powerful public-sector union known as AFSCME. While not a member of the union, he is required under state law to hand over a weekly portion of his paycheck – which he says is a violation of his constitutional rights. "I work for Health and Family Services, and I´m forced to pay money to a union that then supports political causes that I don´t agree with," Janus told Fox News. Now, Janus´ free-speech fight is before the Supreme Court, which holds arguments in

CPAC CANCELS PANEL ON FREE SPEECH AND SOCIAL MEDIA CENSORSHIP — (Snip) This year when Pamela Geller went to CPAC to request a panel on social media censorship they abused her and strung her on until Monday night — after the official agenda was already printed. CPAC was upset that The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft was on the panel. They accused Gateway Pundit of being supporters of neo-Nazis. This is what they think of The Gateway Pundit and our readers. This is CPAC. The Gateway Pundit is one of the top pro-Israel websites in the US. The Gateway Pundit was the first website to speak

Last week, Lawrence Tribe suggested, without evidence, that a plane crash in Russia was related to fallout from the Russian dossier operation orchestrated and funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign. (Snip) When it comes to the Russia-Trump collusion theory, a bit more journalistic rigor is in order. One of the most enthusiastic promulgators of a Russia-Trump collusion theory is Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the ranking member on Nunes’ House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. For more than a year, Schiff has been hopping around all the TV stations claiming, without benefit of specifics, the existence of a vast conspiracy between

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Thursday he aims to have a memo written by Democrats on the panel released this week, after President Trump declined to release it earlier in the month. Democrats say their memo was written as a rebuttal to provide greater context to a Republican memo that was released earlier this month, which outlines abuses by the FBI and the Justice Department against the Trump campaign. "I actually hope that we´ll do that in the next few days,” Schiff, a Democrat from California, said at an event Tuesday night called "Investigating

Chris Hughes, a co-founder of Facebook and chair of the Economic Security Project, has a proposal to attack the problem of rising income inequality through a basic income, a system of wealth distribution in which people receive a standard salary just for being alive. And he wants to pay for it by raising taxes on the one percent. (Snip) To pay for this, Hughes proposes bringing tax rates on the top 1% of earners in the country to 50% — which is in line with the historical average, he said. The idea is to provide people with a reliable income

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:

Outspoken leftist and "Grey´s Anatomy" star Ellen Pompeo challenged Fox News host Laura Ingraham, whom she referred to as a "b****", to a physical fight on Friday. For real. "Someone tell this b**** to meet me outside," wrote Pompeo, referring to Ingraham, via Twitter. "Im [sic] so not in the mood for playing nice or polite this week." (Snip) The actress was reacting to a video clip, which she quote-tweeted, of Ingraham suggesting NBA star LeBron James quit the political activism and "shut up and dribble" — a reference to her 15-year-old book titled "Shut Up & Sing." Pompeo continued the taunting,

Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway is urging the NRA to find a new home for its annual convention. He says the meeting is not appropriate in Dallas in the wake of last week´s school shooting in Florida. Caraway also points to the past tragedies in Dallas, including the 2016 ambush that killed five Dallas officers, and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
