Even after a week of Olympic coverage, NBC continues to find new ways of earning its #NBCFail hashtag. With the tape delay being the source of so many problems, the advantage would seem to be knowing when to cut away from the action.
Did NBC really not show a full race? #REALLYNBCREALLY?

Did @NBC seriously just do a, "right after this…" in the MIDDLE of a swim race?!?

Why did NBC just cut to a commercial break seconds before the end of a swimming race that the USA was about to break the world record in…?

Did NBC just cut away from a race because the winner was obvious? An American shatters a world record and we don’t even see the whole race?

No, it’s not just you.

In fact, so many people were asking the same question that “Did NBC” became a trending topic. Did they? Yes, yes they did.
