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.

All over Twitter, especially — but really, everywhere — people have been complaining about NBC’s handling of the games.

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