NBC Apologizes For Editing Out 'Portion' Of Pledge--But Doesn't Mention Omitted Words Were 'Under God'

As Noel Sheppard reported earlier, in the show-opening feature of its coverage of the final round of the US Open golf championship today, NBC--twice--edited out the words "under God" from its clip of school children reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

Clearly many Americans were offended and let NBC know about it. Because later in the broadcast, host Dan Hicks issued an apology on behalf of the network. But NBC simply compounded one omission with another. The apology spoke of "a portion of the Pledge" being edited out--but never mentioned that the omitted words were "under God."

yeah. Some apology. They omitted 'under God' on purpose.
Gonna be intersting to see how God deals with this. And he will,
we just don't know when.

NBC just insulted a lot of people (and
God). And their so-called apology didn't help one bit.
