The focus of her report - the new uniforms unveiled for the U.S. Olympic team, designed by iconic American designer Ralph Lauren, did not carry a made in the U.S.A. label, but rather were made overseas in China.

Wednesday's report sparked outrage among both "World News" viewers and lawmakers in Congress. "I think they should take all the uniforms, put them in a big pile and burn them and start all over again," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said when asked by ABC News, "If they have to wear nothing but a singlet that says USA on it, painted by hand, that is what they should wear."
