I don't think people realize how much money is involved in the Olympics. A bidding war goes on over TV rights world wide and many billions of dollars are involved. I long for the days when we had our C-band dish and watched open CBC coverage. It was great, balanced coverage with no jingoistic rhetoric. Today, of course, a privately-owned commercial network, CTV, won the bidding war and is providing coverage in Canada. My guess is that while it is neither as obnoxious nor as thorough as NBC, it would not remind me of the CBC coverage.
