Yesterday I watched the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics, live on line at 1 PM Pacific time, only because NBC refused to show it live! Are they stupid? Why didn’t they show the Michael Phelps race this morning, at 11 30AM Pacific time? Are they really stupid? What were they thinking by cutting out of their recorded version of the opening ceremony, a memorial sequence for those killed in the London bombings of 2005 and replacing it with an interview between Ryan Seacrest and Phelps? Are they living on a different planet? How disrespectful, how ignorant and how inconsiderate to the families of all those who died..Why, on all their affiliate stations at 6 PM Pacific time, and probably 6 PM East coast time, were they suggesting there was only an hour to go before the opening ceremonies bagan, when in fact they’d been over for 4 hours already? Do they believe that we, the viewing public are that stupid?? Obviously they do, and you, the public should turn them off and watch it as it happens on a web site taking their feed from the BBC. Go to vipboxtv.com and search for the Olympics. It’s easy, it’s live and it will show these idiots at NBC that they have no idea how to cover the worlds biggest event properly!
NBC, I implore you to fire those responsible for this debacle!
BBC, I applaude you for the brilliance you have always shown in LIVE sport coverage. Someone from the BBC should take over at NBC, that way, we might all benefit from LIVE sport rather than the crappy pre recorded coverage we all seem to accept here in America!
Here is a link the the missing piece.
