The Olympics are an international event and, for most of the population, Britain's hosting of them is a once in a lifetime occurrence. As such it is a major news story.
The BBC quite rightly gives the Olympics due
prominence, just as all the other broadcasters do1
. What has alleged political bias to do with that? All papers, left & right, are covering the Olympics.2
Like you, I didn't want the Olympics and I won't be watching them. Unlike you however, I'm not so arrogant as to expect the rest of the world to conform to my will3
1. You're wrong, the BBC are particularly interested in the Olympics to the point where they are almost hysterical over it. The other broadcasters aren't.
2. I said the BBC were not biased against either the left or the right. I said I thought they promoted their own causes excessively and mentioned the Olympics as an example.
3. I said: "I appreciate of course that some people will really want the Olympics here and can't wait."

Most of our so-called reasoning consists in finding arguments for going on believing as we already do.
