‘NBC Delayed’ Twitter Covers The Breaking Olympics News From The Past That NBC Is Only Getting To Now

As anyone who’s been on Twitter or Facebook or ESPN or any sports website really has noticed in the past couple of days, the Olympics are being broadcast here in the United States on tape delay, meaning the rest of the world knows what happened hours before we did. As a member of a country who believes we deserve things NOWNOWNOW, this is unacceptable. The new Twitter account, NBC Delayed, recognizes this unfortunate decision from the Peacock Network, and imagines the breaking news story from 15 years ago, if not longer, that NBC is only getting to now (they’re gonna flip when they hear about this Obama guy). Here are some of my favorites.
