Jon Stewart Blasts NBC's Olympics Editing On 'The Daily Show' (VIDEO)

Just lie back and think of England, NBC.

The official network of the Olympics hasn't been winning any medals in the public-opinion events, that's for sure. On Monday night's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart took issue with NBC's decision not to air a tribute to the 2005 London subway bombings during the Olympics opening ceremony. While international audiences tuning into the event enjoyed a stirring homage to the 52 lives lost in the attack, American viewers' broadcast cut to a Ryan Seacrest interview with swimmer Michael Phelps.

Ouch.

"Are you kidding?" Stewart joked. "NBC -- the network that, to commemorate 9/11, actually re-runs 9/11 -- you wouldn't air a six minute tribute to the rest of the world's terrorist victims? Because the world's most overexposed land-based mammal had a chance to speak to the world's most overexposed water-based mammal."
