Survey says: NBC blows Olympics, sucks at life overall…

It’s no secret that the general consensus surrounding NBC’s handling of the Olympics is that it sucks. Plain and simple — horrible. Between tape delays, “old farts”, and utter lack of any real selection of online content means for an increasingly digital generation, the Olympics was an epic let down. Don’t believe me or the countless other sites highlighting such travesties? Just look at Crimson Hexagon’s data (above) collected across various online sources, namely 20,000+ Twitter posts and 5,700 blog posts, social networking comments, etc.

While 20-40,000 data points are hardly enough to generalize across an entire country of 250 million+, the sentiment shared by the internet going crowd at least is pretty unanimous — NBC’s Olympic coverage sucks. Seeing as how I have to use a VPN to fake that I’m in another country just to watch a damn live stream of any particular event mean NBC is doing it all wrong. Very wrong. I can only hope that they either get their act straight for the next Olympics or someone else takes over. Because as it stands now, NBC is bad for the Olympics.
