What Were You Thinking, Mary Carillo?


So during last night’s NBC Olympics broadcast, correspondent Mary Carillo did one of those annoying features that make the American networks’ quadrennial orgies of of obscure sports so annoying.  This one was about her whirlwind tour of China.

And wouldn’t you know it, two of the things she did during the trip were to visit to the Three Gorges Dam and to ride on the Tibet Railway.

Oh that’s just freaking brilliant NBC:  major human rights violations as tourist hot spots.  Nice going, dimwits.
