Is the media focusing too heavily on Michael Phelps?
He is literally the greatest of all time. The media should be focused on the one with 21 Olympic gold medals. Not to mention in America, this my shock some, we want to hear how team USA is doing. Guess who has won the most individual gold for the team this year? Phelps. You are in the middle of the swimming events, where Ledecky and Phelps are dominating, so they are the media stories.
The media notoriously focuses too heavily on just the United States, and even more so on individual stars.
