NBC Mentions Phelps Controversy

Feb 2, 2009  •  Post A Comment

NBC didn’t shy away from noting Olympic record-holder Michael Phelps’ controversial partying during its Super Bowl Sunday broadcast, although NBC Sports had no immediate comment on the published photographs of the swimmer smoking marijuana at a party last fall, the Hollywood Reporter says. Phelps on Sunday acknowledged he had smoked marijuana and apologized, the trade paper says.

  1. Again, a major publication gets it wrong. Michael Phelps never admitted to actually smoking marijuana, nor di he apologize for it. He admitted to bad jusgement (never mentioning actually smoking marijuana) and apologized for said bad judgement. Did he smoke marijuana? Probabaly. Did he actually admit to it. Not in any statement issued to anyone.
