Noting that the three major networks once almost made a joint bid for the Olympics in 1980, a former NBC chairman urged Monday that similar action be taken for "all U.S. television" in the future. The price for U.S. broadcast rights to the Olympics "hasn't been reasonable for a long time," said Julian Goodman, who contended that "there's a better, cheaper way to do it, one that would provide a superior service to the viewer."

In a sign that Washington's laissez-faire attitude toward television may be ending, Congress begins taking a very public look today at the impact of recent financial cutbacks on network news operations. Rep. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.

There is debate about whether the price will rise. The Fox television network may join ABC, CBS and NBC in the competition. But the biggest question as bidding nears on U.S. television rights to the 1992 Summer Olympics is what role cable will play. With memories of NBC's financially disappointing 1988 Summer Olympics show still fresh in many minds, Olympics officials for the first time are actively pushing for cable to get a piece of the action for the Barcelona Games.

It's been a stormy year for the networks. Strikes against CBS and ABC lasted seven and eight weeks respectively. An NBC walkout now is in its seventh week. It's possible that CBS could be struck again. Last month, the Directors Guild of America almost called the first walkout in its history against the three networks. At the last minute it reached a tentative agreement with NBC on a new contract for staff directors. But no guild agreements have yet been made with CBS and ABC.

It's hard to imagine that once upon a time NBC regularly turned to journalists to run the network. The entire network. Can this be the same NBC that now is closing news bureaus and losing key news personnel under the management of General Electric, its owner since 1986? In truth, it's not the same NBC.
