Bob Costas: NBC Won't Ignore Russia's Anti-Gay Laws During Olympics Coverage

NBC Sports anchor Bob Costas yesterday vowed that his network will not ignore Russia's anti-gay laws during their coverage of the Sochi Olympics.
“If Putin doesn’t drag his butt into the studio, then we’ll talk about it without him,” Costas said during an Olympics press preview. “But if he shows up, we’d rather talk to him. Wouldn’t you rather hear it from the horse’s mouth? I would. That’s what I was trying to say.” At the press event in Studio 8H of "Saturday Night Live" fame, NBC executives expressed how significant the world sports spectacle is for the entertainment and media conglomerate. NBCUniversal chief Steve Burke went as far as to say, “The soul of this company is the Olympics.”
