News Summary: Full TV coverage for Paralympics


AFTER THE OLYMPICS: This year's Paralympics are expected to draw their largest ever live television audience.

THE CATCH: In the U.S., events will receive only minimal coverage and won't be screened as they happen. Some coverage will come only after the 11-day competition in London has concluded on Sept. 9.

THE COMPLAINTS: That has left some equality campaigners complaining that Paralympic athletes, who include military veterans, aren't being treated as the equal of their able-bodied teammates.
