Media Bites – VISA & the 2010 Winter Olympics

January 12, 2010

This week’s Media Bites takes a look at recent VISA commercials celebrating the upcoming 2010 Winter Olympics. We look at the celebratory elements in the VISA commercial, but more importantly we discuss the organized opposition to the 2010 Winter Olympics, particularly by Native communities.

In addition, for more background information on organized opposition to Olympics historically check out Just Say No to the Olympics – a panel of speakers, which included Dave Zirin (Edge of Sports), Bob Quellos (Not in Chicago), and Chris Shaw with the 2010 Olympic Watch Committee.
