CONGRATULATIONS, CULLEN JONES!
NBC is doing a LOUSY job of showcasing AMERICA’S Olympians, particularly our BLACK OLYMPIANS. Last night NBC televised the 50 freestyle with Cullen Jones winning a Sliver Medal, his first INDIVIDUAL MEDAL and what does NBC do? Shows Florent Manaudou, the French Gold Medal winner hugging his sister who ran down from the stands, then they went to a fucking commercial.
Here’s HOW NBC could have showcased Jones, in addition to INTERVIEWING him poolside after his SILVER medal win, especiallyy since this was his First individual WIN. I’m sure viewers would have loved to hear Cullen’s feelings and thoughts on the win. I know I was waiting to hear him.
Recap/reminder for all who might not be familiar with who is Cullen Jones.
