RESPONSIBLE JOURNALISM: NBC Sports Group Chair Mark Lazarus said of how his division would cover news regarding Russia's anti-gay laws, "We have to acknowledge they exist and are a potential issue for the Games. If they affect the Games, we are responsible to report they are affecting the Games, either through the way athletes are demonstrating or through any issues that take place with Russian authorities ... We will be responsible journalists from the sports side and news side. When they are out of our boundaries, we will turn it to news. But we are not going to ignore it when they are in our boundaries" (SI.com, 11/3).
