I find it very misleading and like rubbing salt in a wound when ABC flashes the word live across the screen during prime-time Olympics coverage. Los Angeles viewers should know that we in the Pacific time zone are in the only time zone not to get live prime-time coverage.
Watching these games three hours after they have occurred when three-fourths of the country has already seen them is discouraging and anticlimactic.
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.
