Olympics Ratings

Olympics ratings are not good but the folks at NBC console themselves.
NBC notes that its viewership is down 22 percent since Nagano in 1998. At the same time, the World Series is down 21 percent, and the Academy Awards down 27 percent _ proof that big events in general have less pull than they used to, the network said.
Trust the MSM to put the best spin on their loss of hegemony.   Those big events were worth watching once - before multi-million dollar sport salaries for creepy, ill-behaved athletes and poor sportsmanship in sports and movie stars began to believe they were political geniuses.  And before studios wanted to "send messages."
