CBS 2 takes shot at NBC's Olympic Coverage

Lots of people are criticizing NBC's coverage of the Olympics (as evidenced by the popularity of the Twitter hash tag #NBCFail), but when you see a shot fired from the official Twitter account of a rival network's station in the third largest market...well that's a rather loud statement.

And what the official tweet from CBS 2 had to say about the NBC editing of the London 2012 Opening ceremonies...well, it's a very glaring omission on NBC's part and extremely insensitive:

The tweet:

Why did @NBCOlympics cut @EmeliSande out of their #OpeningCeremony broadcast? #NBCfail http://bit.ly/LYUclF
