REPRESENTATIVE OF NBC’S aggressive content fencing, as well as their police grip on everything Olympics, when Guy Adams started ripping the network for their coverage of the London Olympic games, they took action. Twitter obliged.
As you can see above, he’s back, promising an article to follow.
…[update] and as promised, here it is: I thought the internet age had ended this kind of censorship.
Here are three things that NBC prevented their public from being able to watch on network television so far this Olympic Games: live footage of the opening ceremony; live footage of Saturday’s swimming showdown between Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte; live footage of the USA men’s basketball “dream team.”
A fourth thing they do not want people to see is the email address of Gary Zenkel, the executive responsible for this shambles. And a fifth thing is my Twitter feed, which over the weekend contained a couple of dozen occasionally uncouth observations about their coverage, several of which were accompanied by the trending hashtag: “#NBCfail.”
Postscript: …and spoiler alert… The U.S. women’s gymnastic team won the first gold medal since 1996 today. If you’ve been over the Huffington Post, Getty captures the picture.
