Bob Costas to Appear on ‘O’Reilly Factor’ Tonight

bob-costasNBC’s Bob Costas will be a guest on a live edition of the “O’Reilly Factor” tonight, recounting his recent experience anchoring the Olympics in Sochi while commenting on the tumultuous situation between Russia and Ukraine.

Toward the end of his Olympic coverage, Costas teared into the Russian regime.

The Sochi games are Vladimir Putin‘s games, from their inception to their conclusion, and all points in between. If they are successful on their own terms, as appears to be the case, then at least in some corners it will help to burnish the image of a regime with which much of the world takes significant issue. No amount of Olympic glory can mask those realities any more than a biathlon gold medal, though hard-earned and deeply satisfying as it is, can put out the fires in Kiev.

Costas will be on for two segments, so we’ll keep an eye out for any exchanges on Costas’ infamous Olympics eye infection (pun intended).
