Enough with all that fakery, let’s talk about Michael Phelps

Over the past 24 hours, swimming was the most popular Olympic topic, urged on by the continued success of Michael Phelps and the U.S. men’s 4x100m relay team’s upset win over France. an Olympics-related advertisement in Spain’s best-selling newspaper picturing Spain’s basketball team pulling on the corners of their eyes was also a popular point of discussion, with many questioning the ad’s appropriateness and whether or not the host country, China, would find it offensive. The U.S. men’s basketball team continued to be a highly discussed topic. Television-related topics rounded out the Top 5. One such topic was what one blogger called fakery in the broadcast of the Opening Ceremonies. Specifically, using computer-generated images for some of the fireworks that did not show up well on video and a young girl seen on screen singing was actually lip-synching to the voice of another young girl that organizers reportedly did not feel was attractive enough to represent the country on television. The final Top 5 Topic was NBC’s coverage of the Olympics, particularly the delaying of certain events and whether or not things were actually “Live” at some points.
