regarding kim yuna
Someone was live-statusing (?) it on Facebook. Americans and South Koreans were outraged. General consensus from American news sources that unfair Russian favoritism was afoot:

Whereas Japan's Mainichi Shimbun attributes it to judges not basing scores on artistry, rather on technical prowess, headlining: Russia reaffirms command of Olympic figure skating.

I just thought it was interesting.

Japan has no great fondness for South Korea. American mainstream media has basically hated on Russia since the opening ceremony. Everything is very political.
