Where will you go for Olympic coverage?

    Which news organizations do you think cover the Games best?

    And, while we're at it, how actively will you seek Olympic news? I know we have a thread about how closely you'll follow the Olympics, but those watching and those reading can be very different groups.

    Is there any newspaper you'd go for Olympic coverage? I'll poke around for take-outs from different outlets, but for up-to-date info, I'll go to the BBC or NBCOlympics.com

    What newspapers have reporters and/or columnists at the Games?

    If I was still Olympics editor at USA Today, the answer would be obvious.

    Like most stuff, I'll get most of my info off the raw wire feed.

    For sidebar stuff/postcards/the general environment surrounding the Games, Scott Ostler (SF Chronicle) is in London and writing about every day. The first several installments from him have been outstanding. I do not find that surprising in the least because I think Scott Ostler is an outstanding columnist.

    I will be checking out the Chronicle - - and Ostler's archived columns - - every day or so.

    Because I want to watch something where the NFL preseason and training camps will come before the bulk of the Olympic coverage... :D

    Is the Nation's Newspaper still sending twice as many people to the Olympics as any other?

    I have no ideer, but I rather doubt it. The preview section today rounded up the usual suspects but there's no staff box, which was our usual dick-measuring gesture.

    Am I curious how many papers are sending reporters and photographers. I'm sure it's considerably less than in the past and I certainly understand that. I can remember when lots of metro papers would send 10 or so. I doubt that's the case anymore.

    Oh, and to answer the question: my primary source will be NBCOlympics.com and London2012.com. It may be the first time I won't even pick up a print edition. Hey, if you're going to give me the content online, why bother?
