Let them eat commercials seems to be the ABC royal decree...

February 27, 1988

Let them eat commercials seems to be the ABC royal decree regarding coverage of the Winter Olympics. What we should do is storm the castle, cut off their paychecks, then phone the sponsores and tell them why we did it.

Cutting away from the USA-Czechoslovakia hockey match for commercials was an all-time sicko. It caused millions of people to miss seeing the USA score two times. ABC's giving up on America's hockey team because it was trailing the Soviet Union was unbelievable.

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.
