John Moody, who ran editorial content at Fox News Channel for more than a decade, has left the network.
“John Moody has retired from FOX News,” the network said in a statement tonight.
Moody, who was most recently executive editor, found himself the subject of the news when he wrote an op-ed for FoxNews.com which included this line: “Unless it’s changed overnight, the motto of the Olympics, since 1894, has been ‘Faster, Higher, Stronger.’ It appears the U.S. Olympic Committee would like to change that to ‘Darker, Gayer, Different.’”
That led to protests from several organizations including GLAAD and the HRC. Fox News pulled the op-ed, saying, “John Moody’s column does not reflect the views or values of Fox News and has been removed.”
