What program director made that decision? While it will not affect my choice of TV programs because I generally do not watch NBC, it left a real bad taste in my mouth for future choices. Are their advertisers seeking other venues? There is even a twitter hashtag - #NBCFail that is from former programming failures (Olympics) but has been revitalized as Americans respond to this negligence on NBC's part.
How do you feel? Does this lack of support from a major network reflect other issues that impact the morale of the troops, their families and wounded warriors? I think it does but trying to not be reactive but more like amazed.
