ICYMI: Rubio Slams NBC’s Olympics Coverage

In Olympics coverage, NBC should stand for ‘National Beijing Corporation’

At this point, the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) could just as easily be named the “National Beijing Corporation.”
 
Over the past few days, the network, which rakes in exorbitant profits from its exclusive coverage of the 2022 Olympic Games, has dutifully recited Chinese Communist Party (CCP) talking points at every turn. Rather than telling viewers the truth about Beijing’s oppression and ongoing genocide, NBC has opted for a “both sides” approach that makes the CCP out to be as trustworthy as our own government….
 
An American news agency should never peddle a hostile regime’s propaganda. The CCP doesn’t deserve a shred of legitimacy, and NBC’s “both sides” approach is nothing less than a capitulation to the Party, motivated by corporate greed.
 
Unfortunately, NBC is not alone. Despite the fact that the U.S. issued a diplomatic boycott of this year’s Olympics, many American companies have maintained their sponsorships. There is no way around it – by supporting the Winter Olympic Games, Coca-Cola, Airbnb, Intel, Visa, and others are helping the CCP whitewash slavery and genocide….
 
As NBC’s hosts fawn over the Games’ firework shows and choreographed dance routines, more than a million Uyghurs lie imprisoned in Xinjiang concentration camps. These human beings, many of them children, are deprived of all dignity and subjected to killings, torture, rape, slave labor, and forced sterilization and abortions.
 
And they are not the CCP’s only victims. Millions more suffer abuse from the CCP on a daily basis….The contrast between the pomp and ceremony on display in Beijing and the grave evils being committed throughout China could not be stronger….
 
The CCP is an evil regime, and our country should not be complicit in its propaganda and whitewashing, no matter the cost. Many Americans are taking a stand against evil by not watching the Olympic Games. Instead, our corporate elites have chosen to repeat the mistakes of the past.
