    I used to consider myself a conservative, but those old definitions are meaningless in this post-Trump world. There is an odd pattern to this bizarre bigoted (racist, sexist etc) behavior which now exists in spite of big business. What keeps this extreme opinion afloat? I have a feeling when the cloak is pulled back, most of us aren't going to like the answer, but it will re-organize this country in a way that we have not seen before.

    Moody exposes the true mood at Fox News. His mistake wasn't in conforming to the corporate view, but in expressing it so publicly.

    You're supposed to pretend those attitudes don't exist and to deny them. In theatre you're taught to never lift the curtain to let the audience see what's happening behind the stage. Moody has created a (likely passing) problem for himself and Fox.

    John Moody exec vp Fox News, wrote that U.S. Olympic team's motto should be "Darker, Gayer, Different...If your goal is to win medals, that won’t work.” However the statement reflects the views and values of Fox News the illegitimatepotus, and his supporters
    .... that is why Fox is number one with uneducated Trumpsters.... don't want to lose ratings

    Wow, what an idiot.

    Can he produce even one athlete who claims to have been denied a spot on the US Olympic team for ANY reason other than ability?

    Didn't think so.

    And with only two openly gay athletes on the team at Pyeongchang, if the system is biased toward gays it sure isn't working very well!

    I have to agree with you 100% on this one. Thanks to all the narrow minded bible thumping screwballs, conservatism has sadly morphed into a doctrine of backwardness, ignorance, and pure hatred. I am not a conservative by todays horrific standards and I have no intentions of joining that undereducated camp because it would be a major offense to my centrist independent viewpoints.
