NBC Broke Even On The London Olympics, So Get Ready For More Tape Delays And Crappy Online StreamingErik Malinowski9/07/12 10:00amFiled to: london olympicsNbc failNbcMediaNewsOlympicsAppicTop311EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkThe lasting legacy of these recent London Olympics wasn't Ryan Lochte's epic bro-ness or McKayla Maroney's perpetual disinterest in everything, but rather it was #NBCfail, the hashtag that, over the course of 17 days, came to signify the complete ineptness of a media conglomerate to please its wider audience, from the cherry-picked editing of live performances to the farcical primetime tape delays to the unreliable web streaming.
