Making a case for NBC's delayed prime-time packaging -- on cnn.com

There's little if any upside to defending NBC's tape-delayed prime-time coverage of the 2012 Olympics, which as of now are on track to become the most-watched Summer Games ever among U.S. audiences. But I try to give the Peacock a break in a requested, unpaid guest commentary for cnn.com. It's already taking a hammering, although many respondents seem to be ripping NBC's U.S.-centric coverage rather than the prime-time packaging. Short memories. The former storied network of the Olympics, ABC, unfailingly took the same "homer" approach.

Anyway, here's a link to the CNN commentary, which is right here.
