Guy Adams still nipping at NBC’s butt and good for him

He’s still on Twitter even if his #shutupmattlauer was shut down by the cowards at Twitter when NBC took to the fainting couch.

Today, he’s got a little something up at The Independent, and he’s still piling it on. Oddly I’ve not seen this story over here . . . have you?

Controversy over the coverage of the Olympics on American television deepened today when NBC was accused of deliberately editing footage of the women’s team gymnastics in order to create what critics called “fake suspense.”

This follows the already . . .

. . . widespread criticism of NBC for preventing network TV viewers watching key Olympic events live. They are forced instead to tune into commercial-laden highlights packages aired during evening prime-time.

And all this to ‘break even’ as their earnings are projected to do. They wanted the prestige I assume. FAIL.

Well isn’t this special. I’m so going to follow Guy Adams on Twitter

If you’re NBC, you do not have to put up with some little person hurting your feelings, because it hurts sooo much; you fight back. You throw your weight around and shut that little person up (irony alert: shut up!).

NBC, I hope someone takes you to the frackin’ Supreme Court of these United States for this. You too, Twitter.

Critic of NBC has Twitter account suspended after network complains

Throughout the Olympics, Guy Adams has taken to Twitter and ripped NBC repeatedly for its coverage of the Games in America.

Namely, he’s criticized the network’s reliance on using tape delays, a frustration shared by millions of viewers.

A few of his tweets:

“Am I alone in wondering why NBC  thinks its [sic] acceptable to pretend this road race is being broadcast live?” he wrote in one.

“Matt Lauer: ‘Madagascar, a location indelibly associated with a couple of recent animated movies,'” he mocked on another.

Adams encouraged Lauer “to shut up” and called out Gary Zenkel, the president of NBC Olympics, as the “moronic exec behind the time delay.” And he said Zenkel should be fired.

Subversive in the extreme, eh?

Mac tells us in a downstream thread that he watched the Opening Ceremonies on BBC One and pronounced it splendid.
