NBC dumps Olympic analyst amid fury at Korea-Japan comment

Japan ruled Korea with an iron fist from 1910 to 1945 in a bloody occupation that still strikes a raw nerve.
NBC was forced to apologize for one of its Olympics analysts after he inexplicably said Koreans are grateful for Japan’s role in their economic development — while ignoring the one-time imperial power’s brutalization of the peninsula.
The Peacock Network was left red-faced by weird comments from corporate bigwig Joshua Cooper Ramo, whom 30 Rock worked as a commentator for coverage of opening ceremonies of the Olympics in PyeongChang on Friday.
