See, the real problem isn’t that social media is spoiling the Olympics, it’s that NBC news itself is spoiling the Olympics.
I read this on Jeff Cannata’s Facebook page right after my Olympics watching was also ruined for the evening, as NBC news shared with everyone in spitting distance that Ryan Lochte won the men’s 400-meter individual medley Saturday and Michael Phelps got nothing and liked it.
So I’m doing my best to avoid social media (which, let’s face it, is damned near impossible) only to be told what happens by NBC before NBC will show me what happens.
For once, I agree with the masses. The Olympics coverage is stupid.
*I still like that commercial where the guy runs into the closed sliding door though.
