NBC to Devote Four Days of Live Coverage to the Kentucky Derby

Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir will reunite to cover the 2014 Kentucky Derby.

The two former Olympic figure skaters plan to cover fashion May 2 at the Kentucky Oaks and May 3 at the Kentucky Derby. NBC will begin live coverage from Churchill Downs on April 30.


Really?  Man-oh-man.  Is this indicative of what the corporate media thinks is important or what?

What the Kentucky Derby means to me is fragile horses whose bodies can’t hold their own weight and who are bred to make money for their owners.  I can’t stand the thought of watching another horse shatter his or her leg.

Not to be Debbie Downer but yo, NBC, how about devoting  four days (or even four hours) to food banks being swamped with clients due to the “Great Recession” and people who aren’t in need being so squeezed they can’t afford to donate a can or two of food?

Aaaah!  Can you hear me screaming now?
