Larry Stewart was definitely on target when he blasted ABC for shoddy coverage of the Winter Olympics. For most sporting telecasts, the actual sporting events are ruled by television. Whereas, with the Olympics, television must adapt to it.
The Olympics wait for no one, and ABC has not done an adequate job in being the ones to conform. Well, at least there is hope. NBC is covering the Summer Olympics.
Editor's note: Viewpoint and TV-Radio columnist Larry Stewart have received more than 50 letters, an unusual outpouring, on ABC's Olympic coverage. Not one of the letters was complimentary regarding the network's coverage.
