Moody was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In 1975, he graduated from Cornell University and began working for United Press International, serving successively as the Moscow and Paris bureau chief.

Afterwards, he went to work for Time, serving as the Vatican correspondent and Rome bureau chief, from 1986 as the Latin American bureau chief, and finally as the New York bureau chief. As NY bureau chief, Moody was against the 1996 Time/Warner buyout of Turner Broadcasting. He instructed his staff "not to co-operate" with CNN which he saw as a competitor to Time.

In 1992, Moody received the Inter-American Press Association Bartholomew Mitre Award for his interview with Cali cartel kingpin Gilberto Rodriguez Orejuela.

As a Fox News executive, Moody received attention for circulating internal memos which have been described as encouraging political bias in Fox's reporting. Moody's memos were featured in Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism.

In January 2007, after three separate Fox News shows had repeated the Insight magazine story about Barack Obama having attended a radical madrassa school as a child, Moody had to backtrack:

And in an interview, John Moody, a senior vice president at Fox News, said its commentators had erred by citing the Clinton-Obama report. "The hosts violated one of our general rules, which is know what you are talking about," Mr. Moody said. "They reported information from a publication whose accuracy we didn’t know."

Moody again became involved in racial controversy in the run-up to the 2008 presidential election, seizing on a story about a John McCain volunteer who claimed to have been violently assaulted by a black attacker who carved a letter "B" into her face, ordering her to vote for Obama. Moody claimed that this "had to happen" and, if true, would cause voters to "suddenly feel they do not know enough about the Democratic nominee [Obama]. If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain's quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting." Within hours the story was exposed as a fabrication, and Moody was widely accused of attempting to stir up a racially-based voter movement away from Barack Obama.

On August 15, 2008, Moody wrote an editorial lambasting John Murtha  for saying, "There is no question that western Pennsylvania is a racist area." Moody, a native of west Pennsylvania, said Murtha can "go to hell" and called him a "jagoff."
