This is starting to sound like that 30 Rock episode where NBC claimed that they faked the 2008 Olympics by adding "Events" like tetherball, synchronized running, and octuples tennis. http://youtu.be/BnxxzbC3djs
I think I'll post this in the NBC thread as well. Good to know they didn't lose hundreds of millions again. Or did they?
Well IOC is definitely making harder for the everyone to forget. They're attempting lame tactics to change people's thoughts. So I guess it doesn't matter to you then that an organization is constantly lying to people. Even a casual viewer can tell a difference between a toe and a lutz. And also printing fake quotes from Yuna, how low could they get? The IOC made a pact with the devil.

And why would Kim' agency request it to be removed. It is the agency's job to remove such things that are fake and to remove things that falsely represents their client.

The USOC didn't issue press releases with made-up quotations.

This is a false light tort case. Do you really think it will make any difference whether the writer was an employee, an independent contractor or an intern of the IOC? Even if the writer was a volunteer worker, he or she is the "agent" of the IOC and IOC is clearly liable as a principal under respondeat superior. This may not be your common sense but this is law.

Respect the future of the sport and the skaters you admire and don't hush controversy down, The best approach for skaters will always be graciousness,
That's why the fans and supporters (and federations) need to do the "dirty work" for them
While I do not think there is enough wrong to bring a suit in a court of law from this, the principle you subscribe to is correct. Chain of command exists for a reason.

This is a great point but I have to wonder if the IOC has signed statements and release forms regarding the athletes willing or unwilling use in promotion of the games. Be it TV,Web, press release etc. Lawyers make everything quite sticky...lawyers and PR people equals a lot of slimey potential. I'm not a fan of mis-quoting or taking things out of context. That's for sure!!
