Complaints about NBC's Olympics coverage

Missy Franklin of the United States celebrates with her gold medal and an American flag during the medal ceremony for the Women's 100m Backstroke on Day 3 of the London 2012 Olympic Games at the Aquatics Centre on July 30, 2012 in London, England.

We're now several days into the 2012 Olympic games, and one controversy has emerged above others: Not a doping scandal, not a fight between two opposing nations' teams. It's the coverage of the games itself.

Here to talk with us about it in today's Mid-day Extra is Matt Wells, blogs and networks editor at the Guardian.
