Editor's desk. I was routed to talk to Colin Seymour of the sport
section. I raised the issue of Olympic coverage by NBC. He was
in total agreement. He said he was about to write an aritcle on
the subject, but has found another Mercury reporter has written
about it and will be published soon! He mention one case in
breakstroke: Anita Nall was narrowly beaten by a young (16-yr old?)
Japanese woman. He would like see how the champion look, but NBC
has never shown her face!
So to all of you folks who are fed up with the way NBC covers
Olympic, call or fax or write to NBC and your local newspaper
to tell them what you think. Things won't change unless you
let them know! Remember, this is America! As a reader of the
newspaper and an audience of NBC, you don't have to be an
American citizen to air your opinion.
P.S. I also tell him about the skeeting event in which a Chinese
lady Zhang San beat out all male competitors in the co-ed event.
He said he had not heard of the story , and asked me to fax it to
