NBC leaves many frustrated with lackluster Olympics coverage

Hosted by

Year after year, NBC's coverage of the Olympics has been criticized by sports fans and others. The games in Rio are no exception. NBC has delayed broadcast of the Opening Ceremonies and major events, even though Brazil is only one hour ahead of the East Coast of the US. Some viewers there are angry, and those on the West Coast are feeling deprived and manipulated, as we hear from Johathan Tannenwald, a sportswriter for Philly.com.
