NBC and Matthew Mitcham

Here is an upsetting piece about 20 year old openly gay diver Matthew Mitcham - winner of the Olympic gold medal in the 10-meter platform (and a cutie to boot). Needless to say NBC's choice to ignore the only openly gay athlete in the 2008 Summer games and his compelling come from behind story is indicative of what a poor job the mainstream media in the United States is doing. And sadly, the awful mainstream media that we are stuck with is a major reason why I fear that John McCain is going to be our next president.
