Not available in the US
There was good stuff in Australia and on Al Jazeera, but what about across the pond in America? What did it say, for example, in the NY Times article on the Paralympics Closing Ceremony?
....er.... where is that exactly? And is there really only a handful of blog posts about the whole Paralympics?
Now this isn't some local London derby, this is the second largest sporting event in the world.
I heard that NBC didn't show anything live and is condensing the whole Paralympics into a few extracts, but then this is the station that cut the tribute to the victims of the 7/7 attack from their broadcast of the Olympics Opening Ceremony (not cool guys).
But it does seem to me to be a shame and I've got to ask those American readers, what is going on?
Why so little coverage of the Paralympics in America?
