I just saw a segment before the Iraq soccer match which was a hit piece on Bush. NBC criticized Bush for making an ad that includes Iraq and Afghanistan. By the way, the ad doesn't even mention soccer. The NBC hit piece had on some comments from the Iraq soccer team.
That caused me to write a nasty email to NBC Sports:
I'm with you, Uncle Vlad. There's something really shallow about NBC's coverage of the Olympic Games. It just doesn't have the "gravitas" of of the superb coverage provided by Jim McKay and ABC back in the day...
Some interesting posts in #7, 10 and 13.
Please FReepmail me if you want on or off my infrequent miscellaneous ping list.
Not to mention Fahrenheit 911 has been distributed in the ME as well.
And none of the Iraqi players have to worry about dying or being tortured following a loss. God bless THAT!
