The day's other big headliner was Dara Torres, who was first an Olympic swimmer as long ago as 1984. All three networks closed their newscast with a tribute to the 41-year-old mother who qualified for yet another team, for the Beijing Games, over the weekend. As usual, the networks' copyright lawyers refrained from exercising their rights under the fair use doctrine for this legitimately newsworthy event. They included clips of Torres racing on broadcast television but did not post those packages as videostreams online. So there are no links to the reports by CBS' Kelly Cobiella, by NBC's Amy Robach and by ABC's Sharyn Alfonsi.
