Australia has a significant gambling problem.

Australia has a significant gambling problem, yet Channel 9 played hundreds of advertisements for online gambling during the prime time hours of its Olympic coverage. It was a disgraceful example of the media selling their soul (and that of the nation) to make a quick dollar. And their coverage of the Games was very ordinary. They spent too much time at all the boring events and were always late covering the best events. One can only hope that they do not get the contract to cover the Rio Games in 2016.
