    NBC doesn't speak for me or any American I know. They are a media giant that controls what they feed the gullible. I am disgusted by their fake excuse, and do not accept it any more than you condone it. They have no idea what the "American Audience taste" is, and have clearly demonstrated that.

    Give me true news, that's why I listen to the BBC on my way to work. I get a global perspective and not the last forty minutes of what some celebrity is doing with her/his marriage.

    I'm going to try really hard not to rant on about this, but the failure to show the memorial portion is not a failure of the American people, rather a betrayal of those entrusted to bring us World coverage.

    wasn't intended to be aimed at you at all Tink.

    Unfortunately his royal Mittness has not been a great ambassador for your country over here the last week or so.

    Obama however certainly has ,as as always the athletes and visitors

    I don't hink people would think that anyway and anyone who thinks that does is just plain stupid

    The press here are saying today that there were rows and rows of empty seats at all venues

    The numerous Americans mingling with us at the gymastics yesterday were a real credit to your country.

    Taped the opening ceremony and finishing watching it this AM. I too have to admit that the ceremonies were impressive. However, I also have to agree that NBC's coverage is appalling.

    The empty seats are a combination of corporate seats (which happens at every sporting event) and seats reserved for athletes to watch the events of their teammates , however as its right at the very start most are preparing for their own events
