    Sparse/Selective Olympic TV Coverage
    Is it a subtle attack against US nationalism?:confused:

    Has anyone seen any of the Women's or Men's soccer games?:confused:

    Has anyone wanted to see that (btw I saw it instead of the morning news on msnbc)?

    I honestly don't care to see any of those matches.Soccer isn't my thing, but if you have Direct TV you can see all the events on 6 different channels covering all of the Olympic games.

    It never fails the event that i want to see comes on while I am sleeping.

    No one cares about the olympics.

    And "attacking US nationalism"? What does that even mean?

    Am I the only one that finds the OP both confusing and seemingly fascist?

    I'm boycotting the Olympics as is, so I couldn't comment on the supposed media bias. Gut instinct: bullshit.

    You're kidding right? Boycotting? Give me a break. I've seen both womans and mens soccer as well as every other crazy sport that I may not care about.

    Why not? The last few years the Mia Hamms of American soccer have been ICONS, And NOW? Absolutely nothing.

    That doesn't mean anyone's trying to undermine our nationalism.

    It does if you understand the power of the media.


    Tell me why women's soccer isn't center stage?
