Most of us have enjoyed the Sochi Winter Olympics despite The Netherlands ridiculously high medal count. Ice Dancing, Snowboarding, Curling are just a few of the events that tickle our fancy - some of these sports are ridiculous, some are extreme but so many are inspiring as you get to know the athletes and their individual journey to the medal platform.
NBC has blown the coverage, beginning with an annoying Matt Lauer moralizing and burbling, demonstrating his lack of knowledge of sports. Bob Costas appeared in glasses, magnifying one of the worst cases of double conjunctivitis most non-medical personnel have even seen – it was impossible to watch Costas without your own eyes watering in sympathetic pain. NBC’s annoying habit of skipping from event to event just when you seem to settle into to one sport is the stuff of legendary complaints on Twitter.
But the most egregious “reporting” I have seen was the Bode Miller interview last night after he won the Bronze Medal in the Super G Ski Race. Bode Miller is the “elder statesmen” of the who’s who in skiing. Miller has had a long year marked by change – some positive (he got married) and some negative – he lost his kid brother after a massive head injury. Some crazy bitch named Christin Cooper interviewed Miller and repeatedly brought up the recent death of Miller’s brother. And I mean repeatedly. She would not stop. It was unreal. Cooper should be fired and Miller should receive a public apology.
