Network shows a graphic with no sound, so I can simply not look. Local tells me to mute, which forces me to get off the computer, go into the other room to try to find the remote, which has likely been moved. So a couple times I left the house to get something done outside. Now I'm proactive and I turn off the tv when local news comes on.

/you can tell local news in Kansas City is shaped by the complaints of 90-year-olds.

My brother in Chicagoland was griping about the same thing last weekend. It must be rampant. Though, I don't remember spoilers being this much of an issue with the Australia Games in 2004. Or the Beijing Games in 2008. But I guess back then we didn't have all these avenues of sources for the results on events, nor the ubiquitous use of internet for a lot of folks, either.

I just wish I could pay for like a $20-$50, hell even $100 pass to watch unlimited streamed content online, for the entirety of the Games. I don't own a TV and watch everything on my laptop. If NBC wasn't such greedy bastards with the broadcasting they could make several extra million from folks who JUST want to enjoy such a rare, great event.

And then you could replicate that for the World Cup, or Wimbeldon, or whatever!

Why do we have to wave enormous gobs of money in front of these executives to make them realize folks want shiat a certain way and they're not giving it to us and they're losing more money in the long rung because of it!

/rant!
