NBC Edited Out Women’s Gymnastics Fall To Create Fake Gold Medal Suspense

The gaffes just keep coming from the Numbskull  Broadcasting Company’s tape-delayed London Olympics coverage. Turns out that live viewers of the women’s gymnastics’ team medal competition on Tuesday saw Russia’s Ksenia Afanasyeva go splat during her floor exercises. Which virtually handed the gold medal to the Americans early on. But NBC coverage edited out Afanasyeva’s dramatic fall from its Tuesday night broadcast, which in and of itself is unthinkable since she’s the reigning world champion for floor exercises

Truly pathetic considering anyone who knows how to add and subtract knew it sas over without having seen the gaffe.

Then again few may still know how to add and subtract.

If you want to know what happens, watch the Live feed. You have to find the feed from each apparatus, such as Floor Exercise. There are no annoying commentators. They have another Live feed with commentators, and it shifts from floor to vault or whatever. But I found that they were shifting around and missing Americans who were performing at the same time. Anywho, I switched to the uncommentaried one. It was great! There are other gymnastics sites that have good commentary while the girls are performing. The people doing this live Tweeting tell more about what is going on.

it gets worse...they are using the Olympics to campaign for obama and slam conservatives...

1) this morning on the Today show Lauer is interviewing one of the players from Team USA basketball squad (koby bryant?? had it on but was not really paying attention) Lauer talks about the “special moment when first lady michelle obama came down after the game and hugged all you guys”..

2) mary carillo is doing a special this afternoon on england’s favorite drink, tea....of course midway through the special she says “this should not be confused with the raucous Tea Party in America (camera shot to many of us protesting loudly at a Tea Party event) rather theirs is a noble cause”... i thought- yes; demanding self responsibility for everyone and fiscal restraint by the government is raucous; sitting around eating tea and crumpets is noble!!!

NBC has been kissing Obama’s ass since day 1, they will do ANYTHING to make him look good but the majority of Americans know that NBC is nothing more than an epic failure, just like Obama and his fat ass wife

I knew it!!! I was reading WSJ live blog of the team competition yesterday online and saw that she did a face plant on the floor routine, then when I caught the floor routing on TV last night they only showed the first two Russian girls and cut out the face plant. I was so looking forward to seeing it. Yea I’m evil. lol

NBC: Nothing But Commentary

Watching that animated corpse Bob Costas is a creepy experience. Just shut up and show the games.

I agree with you. The live feed is the best! AND the two feeds that can be interchanged is great. I watch the NBC coverage at night with my hubby but I’m watching all of them live through the day on the website.

But if they show more sports where are they going to find the time to air those human interest fluff pieces?

NBC is all about left wing advocacy and entertainment. There is no straight reporting of news whether it be sports or anything else.

Gone are the days of the 80’s and early 90’s when the Russian team was without doubt the world’s best.

I’m just HOPING that this thread is BS...even though I know that it’s not,

If NBC sees a need to edit that out, once cannot even IMAGINE what they do with real news.

I was looking forward to watching the opening ceremony and quite a few of the sports events. The opening ceremony was beyond BAD. It was so bad that we turned it off.

Then, the sporting events themselves turned out to be nearly as bad. NBC looks like the old Ted Mack Amateur Hour TV show. As to Matt Lauer, he could put any insomniac to sleep. So, we no longer tune in any Olympic events.

On the bright side, it is just more evidence of NBC’s rapid advance into oblivion. It just cannot happen soon enough.
