Dulcinea's Insight

  • In the United States, NBC and USA are the only licensed television networks to be covering the Beijing Games. NBC will be streaming many segments of Beijing events live on NBCOlympics.com and will keep these high-quality videos on the site throughout the Games.
  • For breaking Olympic news, television networks on the Web such as NBC and ESPN often utilize material from outside sources like the Associated Press. More detailed stories and interviews are usually conducted by the network staff.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Read several of a blogger’s posts and his or her bio to get a better sense of their personality and credibility. You’ll likely engage in more worthwhile discussions this way.
  • The Beijing Games are an opportunity to learn more about the host country, so a few of the blogs we’ve selected focus on Beijing or China rather than the Olympics specifically. They provide useful cultural information and insights.
  • The IOC has decided to allow athletes to blog from the Olympic Games in Beijing, as long as restrictions are followed. The issue was largely debated because the organization fears a reality-show atmosphere resulting from blogs. These athlete blogs will provide coverage from a unique angle. The BBC discussed the issue in February 2008.
  • To find more Olympics-focused blogs, try a blog search engine like Technorati or BlogPulse. You can search using specific words and phrases, such as “Olympic Games + Judo,” and you can search for full blogs or blog posts.
