As Twitchy reported, NBC hacks are shamelessly fawning over Vladimir Putin during the Sochi Olympics coverage. The suck-uppery has been disgraceful and Garry Kasparov called out the network for its Putin “propaganda.

An NBC affiliate continued the arse-kissing. NBC Connecticut’s Kevin Nathan squeed madly over being super close to Putin.

Duh. He was far too busy swooning, natch.

Hockey game, Shmockey game! This is what really matters:

Dude. Put the Twitter down and go scrawl madly in your heart-doodled diary instead. Please.
