Thumbs Down: NBC
I know NBC has been heavily bashed (and most of the times rightly so) for their Olympic coverage but until today I cut them a degree of slack. Billions are on the line and they are trying to get as much of it back as possible. But NBC, the Olympics are not a reality show! The Real Gymnasts of Russia might be a good Wednesday night show for you, but editing out world champion Ksenia Afanasyeva's fall, in order to build drama and tension rid NBC of any shred of integrity they had left. What's next editing the nightly news... well some claim this is already being done. Let's leave the editing to Andy Cohen and Bravo shall we.
