NBC’s Abominable Olympic Opener

This year like every Olympic year, my family gathers around the TV to watch the Olympics. This year my children got the treat of watching Nodar Kumaritashvili die. Who’s bright idea was it to show his death to the world over and over during prime time?

Aside from being completely disrespectful to him and his family, watching someone die isn’t something I had wished to have my seven year old watch over and over. Dedicating the opening to him… classy. Showing his life end to the world over and over… tabloid.

Thanks for showing my kids someone die on Prime-time TV. While it was a horrific accident, save the video of the actual moment of the mans death for the 11 news… or better yet, have enough class and respect for the man not to show it at all.
