Coverage of the Olympics in Argentina
It is quite possible that the Olympics represents the most progress humanity has made to date thus far. Pure competition within the leisure (by that I mean sports and not business) realm between nearly all of the people on Earth. Having been a former swimmer myself and competed on the national and international level for the University of Southern California, I am glued to the television for 2 weeks straight every 4 years. I thought it a crime, however, when TyC and Canal 7 both cut off their coverage abruptly at about 11pm last night--during swimming of course!! What they neglected to show (and which, I admit, they might have shown during the wee hours later last night/Monday morning) was quite possibly the greatest swimming race EVER. I kid you not. EVER. Please watch it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYnlW-CzIx4 I know that the race itself has nothing to do with Argentina or expats, but I figured that the lesson here is on the expectations of media within Argentina.
