It’s unforgivable to hold the Olympics in Beijing

It was a forgivable mistake to award an Olympics to Beijing in 2008. It’s unforgivable to hold one there now. If you want a world pocked by concentration camps, in which Xi Jinping surveils your den, takes over Taiwan and threatens a shooting war in Australia, then by all means send an American delegation to the 2022 Winter Games. Western democracies that participate will only be helping to promote, finance and propagandize their own destruction, which after all is Xi’s clearly stated aim, with his talk of “heads bashed bloody against a Great Wall of steel.”

But NBC, which will continue Olympics coverage through at least 2032, has struggled to pivot to the new world of instant news breaks, social media, and streaming; viewers widely panned the coverage out of Tokyo, calling it "atrocious," "a disaster," and "a mess."

Can NBC Balance Profits With Ethics While Covering the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics?

Throughout the massive two-hour spectacle, Olympic themes intertwined with political imagery to depict the party as a benevolent, beloved world leader. In one number, women plucking traditional instruments accompanied hundreds of dancers dressed in Olympic colors, who held hands to form dozens of spinning rings as a digital display blared a retrospective of President Xi Jinping’s diplomatic milestones. In another key scene, hundreds of performers in Beijing 2008 jerseys held aloft Olympic...
