When Nodar Kumaritashvili met his tragic end last week on the luge track at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, the world lost a great athlete, and NBC faced the dilemma of whether or not to show the graphic video and still images. The fact that it's a common dilemma doesn't make it any easier.
As some of you may know, my business partner and I conducted a video interview with BlogHer's very own Gina Garrubbo not too long ago in her Manhattan office.
