Olympics, Week Two: Doesn't Anyone Have Spirit of the Games?

August 08, 1992

It was my understanding that NBC was going to televise the Olympic Games, an international event. All I have seen to date are the USA Games.

In all fairness to NBC, they did manage to show the flag-raising when the swimmer from Spain won his event. Of course, the fact that the winner was an American (too) had nothing to do with it.

To any foreigner watching NBC's shabby presentation, it reaffirmed his impression of the Ugly American.
