Geez, Robert, don’t scare me like that! I saw that you had posted and figured that someone had died during the Olympic games. Thank goodness it wasn’t one of your obituaries!
As to your long tirade - yes, yes, of course there are plenty of other media outlets posting the Olympics. I was talking about the US network broadcast of the opening ceremonies. And of course it was for viewers. NBC doesn’t post for its own gratification. As for your claim that “everything was shown” - really? I hear tell of a tribute to London victims of terrorism, yet I didn’t see that on the network broadcast. Nor did I see more than 3-5 second of Latvian athletes, which was the main point.
