NBC also holds The Closing Ceremonies Hostage!
Until they edit it, and see it again and again, and bargain for million dollar 30 second adds, NBC will hold the closing ceremonies hostage, promising they’ll release them tonight to the American public, who’ll soon will have to pay per event to watch as many olympic events as they can afford. It’s called the NBC totalitarian system. Thanks to NBC Americans haven’t been able to watch most events live. NBC holds the tapes hostage until the following day, when they squeeze the buffalo out of the nickel. If they could release the images with an eyedropper-in fact they did in some events-they’d do it. Tonight America will watch what the world saw last night: the closing ceremonies, with the annoying commentary of Bob Costas, the most hated man in sports news.
