Olympic Thoughts Part 2

I wrote about some Olympic thoughts awhile ago and pointed out concerns about censorship or otherwise limiting television coverage of the Olympics and activities around the games.

Well, it appears the concerns have not gone away yet although the IOC President is confident things will be resolved.
With 7½ weeks to go before the Aug. 8 opening of the games, TV broadcasters are battling Chinese organizers for permission to move reporters, equipment and satellite trucks freely around the sprawling capital city.
It appears the IOC has been told permission to broadcast will be given but must be asked for:
Moreau said broadcasting from Tiananmen Square would require special authorization because the area has been designated a special cultural and historical location.
So I'm still optimistic there won't be issues and wouldn't be surprised if there are.
