A member of the U.S. men’s ski team was disqualified from the Olympics today when it was learned that he did not have a sufficiently compelling human story line to exploit on the NBC telecast of the worldwide sporting event. Tracy Klujian, the expelled skier, was not raised by a single mother, never had a career-threatening injury, and did not overcome a personal tragedy of any kind before making the Olympic ski team, U.S. Olympic officials revealed today. According to the officials, the skier had concealed the fact that he comes from an intact, middle-class family that never lost its home to a flood, tornado or typhoon. “We do our best to check out all of the athletes to make sure that their backgrounds are full of riveting human drama, but we can’t catch everything,” said NBC Olympics chief Gary Zenkel. “This is a case of one bad guy exploiting the system.”

One of the recent Olympics they went so overboard with the "Up-Close & Personals" that they devoted so much time to the backgrounds of Every AMERICAN Athlete that they ceased to cover the EVENTS of every NON-American for the Entire Olympics.
As far as I was concerned.. it wrecked the entire experience and appeared to be embarrassingly bias.
