Last night’s interview was a microcosm for all of NBC’s Olympics coverage.
“Hey Bodie, how do you feel about your dead brother? And I heard that your parents and grandparents are dead too. Does that make you sad? I’m going to show you a picture of abused puppies that were drowned in a river and set on fire? Do those make you want to cry? No? How about if I just kick you in the balls right now so that we can show some tears on camera? Would that be ok?”
~Bodie starts crying~
“Well, there you have it. Total raw, unrestrained emotion from Bodie Miller. And now on to the ice for pairs ice dancing!”
