  22. Interesting discussion about home nation cheerleading in Olympic broadcasts. National Olympic broadcasts, regardless of the country, are biased in favor of their home athletes. You might be interested in an empirical examination of the 18-night CBC and NBC Sochi 2014 primetime broadcasts conducted by James Angelini, Paul MacArthur, Lauren Smith, and Andrew Billings. (Nationalism in the United States and Canadian Primetime Broadcast Coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics.) One finding: Both Sochi Olympic broadcasts emphasized home nation athletes. Canadian athletes represented 48.5% of total athlete mentions on the CBC primetime broadcast. American athletes represented 43.9% of total athlete mentions on NBC’s primetime broadcast. So, the CBC placed a greater emphasis on home nation athletes than NBC did. The difference between the two broadcasts is statistically significant. Another finding: On the NBC primetime broadcast, 65% of the Top 20 most-mentioned Olympians were American. On the CBC primetime broadcast, 100% of the Top 20 most-mentioned Olympians were Canadian. The first non-Canadian to make the CBC most mentioned list on the #Sochi2014 primetime broadcast was Team USA’s Bode Miller. The alpine skier was tied at 26th place … with 5 Canadians. Bode Miller was the most-mentioned Olympian on the NBC primetime #Sochi2014 broadcast. Examinations of Australian and Chinese Olympic broadcasts have shown they also overemphasize home athletes. So, the question generally isn't whether a broadcaster favors the home nation athletes during the Games, it's a matter of to what degree. As Jim Lampley once said about NBC's broadcast, "Inevitably you're going to see stars and stripes. That's just intelligent programming."
