I don't know enough about what's gone on in the games to pass judgment, but I know the American media has been going INSANE with pro-US Olympic
propaganda. They've been throwing loaded words and sentences left and right, there's been countless shots of US teams winning and all getting
together for a big hug and hand-stacking, like "Go America! Triumphing over the rest of the world! Yee-haw!". The logical fallacies have been
through the freaking roof in their commentary, too. I heard something like "The US team is hoping for a sweep in this event, but the
such-and-suchians are looking to defeat us and keep us from our rightful victory!" like it's some sort of war. The political propaganda that comes
with the Olympics is terrifying.
