Was I the only one who was waiting for the LIVE BROADCAST of the 2008 Summer Olympics this morning? I'm sure a lot of people were on the same boat as I was this morning, watching NBC in the hopes of seeing the Opening Ceremony LIVE. But, there was NOTHING, NADA, ZILCH, ZERO. What happened NBC? Americans were probably the only ones around the world who weren't able to see the ceremony as it happened. I'm sure even those who live in remote locations like Bhutan and Ghana were able to see it. So why not us?
NBC clearly values $$$ over anything else. The Today Show hosts did not even mention it in their broadcast. Were they pretending that it wasn't happening that time? NBC blacked out everything this morning, they wanted to show the opening ceremony during Prime Time. So pathetic.
Oh yeah, they also changed the meaning of NBC to "Not airing Before Cash."
