WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott wrote to the CEO of NBC Universal and President of NBC Olympics requesting information on NBC’s plan to cover the 2022 Olympic Games in Beijing, considering Communist China’s long history of harassing and threatening journalists, especially those reporting for American networks. Last year, Senator Rick Scott called on NBC to put human rights over profits by requesting that the International Olympic Committee re-bid the 2022 Olympics, which is being hosted in Communist China, or refuse to air the 2022 games.
