Fox News executive editor John Moody decried the state of the modern Olympics in an opinion piece this week that skewered Team USA for what he believes is a prioritization of "darker, gayer, different" athletes over the more important goal of winning medals.

"A USOC official was quoted this week expressing pride (what else?) about taking the most diverse U.S. squad ever to the Winter Olympics," Moody writes, although he dismisses this being worth commenting on because "no sport that we are aware of awards points — or medals — for skin color or sexual orientation."
