Cover picture for the articleOn Tuesday night, NBC began its primetime Olympics broadcast with a not-so-breaking news update. “The focus here is what happened in gymnastics,” said NBC host Mike Tirico. “Simone Biles, the reigning Olympic gold medalist, who came back for these games at age 24, bowing out of the team event just after it started. As of now we don’t know any more on her status for the rest of the Olympic individual competition.”

She believed her own hype. The self proclaimed GOAT had a bad dismount on the bars and it threw her. She was humiliated and quit. That's all it is, folks.

So true, Hoda lost all professionalism and became a doting mom. On the Today show this am, she and Savannah interviewed two of the silver medalist, Hoda chose to go on and on about Biles, ignoring the fact, almost, these two and their team, stayed, competed and won. I’m sure Biles wishes she could go back and take a deep breath and go back on that vault.

NBC likes to make narratives to follow and hope people do, because they have no good journalism or real ones anyway who know how to report the correct news for all, not just the select.
