by AWR Hawkins, Breitbart:
With images of a hammer and sickle moving across the screen, opening coverage of the Sochi Olympic Games included NBC’s description of communism as “one of modern history’s pivotal experiments.”
NBC’s opening video paid tribute to Russia:
Russia transcends. Through every stage of its story, it’s resisted any notion of limitation. Through every reinvention, only redoubling its effort to cast the towering presence. The empire that ascended to affirm a colossal footprint. The revolution that birthed one of modern history’s pivotal experiments.
If a journalist had described the Third Reich this way, he or she would have been fired on the spot. Yet the number of deaths under Hitler’s regime was far eclipsed by the number of deaths under Soviet leaders.
