Rick Scott urges NBC to demand that the Winter Olympics be moved from China because of human rights abuses


Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) On Tuesday, the NBC called for the removal of China as the venue for the 2022 Winter Olympics over the country’s reported treatment of Uighur Muslims.

“NBC’s own report details the horrors faced by Uighurs in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region and the genocide committed by the Chinese Communist government against them,” Scott said. “Nevertheless, this American network is blind to the atrocities of communist China when it comes to allowing Beijing to host the 2022 Olympics.”

May 19, Scott — A longtime critic of China — Sent a letter to NBC Require the network to use its influence to run the game.

In response to Scott’s letter Head of Federal Affairs for NBC Phil Tahtakran Broadcasters respect human rights, but political leaders are in the best position to tackle human rights globally.
