Olympics Letters

August 08, 1992

I have had it with NBC butchering the Olympics! It seems that every athlete has overcome some sort of life-threatening problem to make it to Barcelona. Is this a prerequisite? And we all know that every time someone wins an Olympic gold medal the hometown is proud of them. Why interview everyone from the mayor to the high school janitor?

This lousy Olympic coverage makes one wonder if the network is promoting their TripleCast subscriptions. How do the sponsors that pay $200,000 or more for a one-minute prime-time commercial feel about encouraging the American consumer to buy a commercial-free option?
