Why I hate American Media...
JohnSpeakDuring the Olympic opening ceremony , NBC cut the dedication to the victims of the london 7/7 bombings because it wasn't "Tailored to a US audience" and instead aired an interview with Michael Phelps.
This is an absolute disgrace, a slap in the face to the people who lost thier lives and to the family members and loved ones they leave behind in this world and NBC should be taken to the wire and disgraced for their actions.
Why is it that the CEO and board members of NBC are still in their jobs? How can they even look at themselves right now in a mirror without being disgusted with their actions?

A victim of terror is a victim of terror. It doesn't matter which country they are from. By doing what they did not only did they spit on the graves of the fallen in london, but they did it to all who have died as a result of terrorist activities and that includes the victims of 9/11 (or lets say it right ... it's 11/9) as well.

52 people died that day and many hundreds were injured. It wasn't just Brits who lost their lives in the 7/7 bombings.. The dead included victims from..

Poland
Turkey
Nigeria
Iran
Romania
Tunisia
Vietnam (Vietnamese born, American raised)

and I could go on with more.

The arrogance of American media astounds me to the point where I am no longer surprised but this shocked me to the core. NBC need to make an apology to all the victims, their families and to every victim of Terrorism around the world for their blatant disrespect.

Well the backlash NBC are feeling at the moment isn't good. They are getting nothing but abuse on twitter as well as facebook and rightly so.
