    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.

    I have watched segments regarding this on both.

    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.

    Can we get some links to real articles and not bloggers, please?

    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.

    It has already been explained to you and you haven chosen to ignore it.

    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.

    Thousands of news sources and you only managed to find a few of them. I thought you were done with this?

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

    Exactly... If there was "incredible amount of backlash" it would be on constantly.

    CBSNews.com had a brief article yesterday ... Choreographer angry that NBC cut segment so that is one outraged person. :)

    The other national media sites seem to be reflecting complaints about the tape delay and not mentioning the edit. At least American national media. The UK sites seem to care more but that isn't our nationality.

    Okay, maybe not commercial-free, but surely with limited commercial interruption it's possible? And, again, if it's not live, why the need to skip anything? And why were some countries during the Parade of Nations simply "caught up while you were away" if it's recorded? There shouldn't have been any of this. Inserting commercial into an ongoing live event, I understand the need to "catch up", but on a 4-hour delay?
