Put this in the political forum because it belongs here. It is a story about a Fox news Executive and the makeup of the US Winter Olympic Team.

“If someone is denied a slot on a team because of prejudice, that’s one thing. Complaining that every team isn’t a rainbow of political correctness defeats the purpose of sports, which is competition,” wrote Moody. “At the Olympic level, not everyone is a winner. Not everyone gets a little plastic trophy to take home.”

Is there a problem in this statement?

None, but has this guy ever watched the figure skating competition?

10 of over 200....wow.

But FOX removed the column from their online site and retracted the story in its entirety.....but that still didn't stop Anderson Cooper from putting it on his "RidcuList"



Pretty much says it all.

The USOC would like as much diversity on it's Olympic teams as possible. All Moody, in my opinion, was doing is pointing out that a better athlete shouldn't be overlooked and not make the team because the USOC wants diversity. He is insinuating an affirmative action type of standard over the best athlete available.... His writing that “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.’ If your goal is to win medals, that won’t work,” is what has over- sensitive people in an uproar.

He doesn't think. Why would you even ask him to do so?

For what it is worth, nobody has improved more in the Olympics than the UK in recent years.

Yes a lot more investment helped, but every trick was used to get everybody in a multicultural society involved.

The results being the 2012 home Olympics was fronted by Jessica Ennis (a mixed race Yorkshire woman) and the most successful athlete was Mo Farah, who came to the UK as a child Somalian refugee. And one of the most popular people in team was/is Tom Daly, who was a child prodigy who came out as being gay, and since won multiple Diving world Championships, as well as Olympic medals.
