Yes it has been.


Again I've searched CNN, nothing... They only thing they are doing, and it's ticking me off, is announcing medals before we get to see the event.

Same with ESPN as I sit here watching NASCAR. :(

Yes it has been.

Bloggers have picked up on it ... but national news? CNN? FoxNews?

BTW: Meridith and Bob noted the tribute in last night's prime time coverage in a review of the opening ceremony. They mentioned it as a tribute to Danny Boyle's father (who would have been 91 on Friday) as well as the family of spectators who died before the games.

Yes, national news. I have no idea why you are arguing about this given the incredible amount of backlash.

What backlash? Where? That's what we're getting at. There's nothing on CNN, FoxNews, etc.

I'm more appalled at the people that are appalled and trying to make something out of nothing.

I'm not appalled, just confused as to where this "outrage" and "incredible amount of backlash" are. I'd think if both were true CNN would have nothing but coverage of the issue on.

You must not be looking. Local and nation news sources in both the UK and US.

Not to be political, but you'd think Fox News would be allllllllll over it.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Just as I am appalled by your earlier offensive comments about Israel.

Exactly, and they aren't. That's what leads me to believe that either there's no "outrage" or "incredible amount of backlash" or this thread is just someone's attempt at humor or someone's attempt to get people riled up.

A news "segment" does not equate "incredible amount of backlash". They give more than 30 seconds to things that involve "incredible amount of backlash".

We are talking about thousands of news agencies. You boil it down to news coverage on two to sum up your entire argument. It has come from many different sources and forms.

Ok, well clearly you're in this just to argue. I was only trying to figure out how it was something worthy of world outrage and an "incredible amount of backlash" and it's not.

I'm not going to argue with you over this. It's insignificant and has no affect on how people will live their lives so I'm done.

Your paranoia has been described, yes. Proof of the world outrage and "incredible amount of backlash" have yet to be provided.

Sigma1914 asked for links, you chose to ignore him and come after me. That only backs up my point.

US and UK, not world-wide. Why would it be world-wide? Links were already provided. More can be sought out by anyone who chooses. Don't make a silly claim and expect someone else to prove or disprove it for you.

Apparently not.

I searched and all I can find are bloggers, The Huffington Post, time.com and a couple of UK news agencies. Hardly the "incredible amount of backlash" we're led to believe.

If it's that big, it'd still be trending.
