AUTHOR: Slublog DATE: 8/17/2004 09:12:00 AM ----- BODY: NBC's Olympics - Once again, NBC is trying to pretend time zones don't exist. Hours after it had been reported that swimmer Ian Thorpe had beat Michael Phelps, NBC ran a stupid feature piece building up the "excitement" about the 200 meter - over nine hours after it happened. What, they haven't heard of the internet? The question, is of course, rhetorical. Considering how the major media have completely ignored story after story on John Kerry and his elitism and lies, we shouldn't be surprised that NBC is trying to insult the intelligence of their viewers by pretending every major sporting event at the Olympics is miraculously happening in prime time. Keeping Chris Matthews on the air isn't helping, either. --------
