Do male athletes get more credit and coverage at the Sochi Olympics?

In the OutFront OutTake, Erin Burnett highlighted the Sochi Olympics - saying the " Olympics, once again, has been a terrific showcase for the world's top athletes. Well, the male athletes anyway."

On Sunday night, Erin Burnett was watching the coverage of men's alpine skiing, specifically the run of Swiss Skier Carlo Janka.

Janka recently underwent heart surgery and, while discussing his recovery, the NBC announcers shared a comment Janka had reportedly made, saying, "There was a point when [Janka] said I don't even belong on the women's downhill tour."

The announcer who shared the comment was laughing as he said it. And then, just a few hours later, Burnett said she heard another announcer comment about a female snowboarder.

"That was a great run. Just five or ten years ago, that would have been a great men's run."

Burnett asks - so women are just 5 or 10 years behind men. Burnett added, "I understand that women are physically not as strong as their male counterparts, but to have a guy in a booth dismiss all female athletes is pretty bad."

Do male athletes get more credit and coverage than their female counterparts? Erin Burnett has more OutFront.
