Why the short shot of Michelle Obama when US team went by in parade of nations? I was disappointed.

Mitt and Anne were on much longer and they talked about them. They just named Michelle. I think I am pissed.

1. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Mittens has made such a colossal ass of himself in London that nobody will be able to look at any pictures of him in London without thinking about that.

2. I was wondering the same thing.

Does Romney have part ownership of NBC or something? The little speech by Lauer about Mittens was revolting: "No matter what your political affiliation, blah--blah--blah--Romney saved the 2002 Olympics".

The difference in NBC's coverage of our First Lady, Michelle Obama, and the Romney's was blatant and disgusting....

...disgusting enough that maybe I'll choose to watch a lot less of this Olympics than originally planned.

20. Romney didn't save the 2002 Olympics.

He was bailed out.

21. Exactly.

Why did Lauer find the need to lie about it?

3. The Olympics isn't about her

she would understand, it is the athletes, their moment. Michelle should keep a low profile, don't draw any undo attention..unlike Romney, ego maniac had to ONE UP the Brits and make it all about him

5. Agreed.

It's not about her (and I'm sure she'd be the first to emphasize that), but NBC's ass-kissing of Mitt Romney was sickening. NBC mentioned politics when it was not needed.

7. Bob Costas sucked. NBC sucks

it was noticed, and shameful. NBC is embarrassing.

How many negative and insulting remarks about other countries did Costas make ?

I was up to ten and had to tune him out. What pompous ass.


i'll have to watch it on the BCC later. I hope this is Costas's last time.

18. There were also comments about free market, capitalism too.

That rat bastard Lauer made it a point to highlight it and he said those exact words.

Can't remember the small country he was supposed to be describing.

10. NBC did linger on the mittwits longer.

I thought she looked bloated, and wondered what she was thinking dressing like the flag

11. If NBC covers the competitions like they did the opening ceremony ...




I'm going to have to find something else to do with my time.

12. I watched the live BBC coverage this afternoon.

 

I watched the live coverage (BBC...watched on an online stream), and they had several shots of Michelle. The only coverage of Romney was one dismissive mention by the commentators (which included one commentator laughing at him a bit). No pic.

13. Never have cared for Lauer, Viera or the Today show. They are just staying true

to form. They spent more time on commercials, which I know are necessary to generate funds for the station, but the ones for the Olympic Ceremony's coverage were excessive.

15. I suppose its different for you over there

We did actually have plenty of coverage of your First Lady throughout most of the day here on our UK tv news yesterday.

Who was providing the coverage you mention ?

17. She's a good ambassador for the US.

as opposed to some of the dick 'eds who invite themselves over. That's why our media provide such good coverage when she's here.
