NBC edited coverage

Reportedly NBC (US) created fake gold medal suspense by editing footage from tape-delayed London Olympics gymnastics coverage. I think they treat everything like it's a reality series.

On Tuesday the women's gymnastics' team medal competition saw Russia's Ksenia Afanasyeva take a stumble during her floor routine, which virtually handed the gold medal to the Americans early on. NBC saw fit to edit out Afanasyeva fall, her mistake devastated her Russian teammates, who were visibly shocked and upset to everyone but NBC viewers.

Claims are that the network didn't show it to create fake suspense around Team USA which was performing after the Russians and already ahead in the previous events. NBC also avoided showing the standings. This is a manipulative and insulting way to cover any sporting event.

Yanks for you almost as bad as the North Koreans in a previous world cup editing it to tell the country they were world champions :suicide:
