"Under God"

June 19, 2011 - Mike Mathison
NBC should be ashamed as it twice left out "under God" as children said the Pledge of Allegiance in the lead-in to Sunday's U.S. Open coverage.

Because it didn't want to offend anyone, it offended myself and many others. The politically correct world is getting truly disgusting. The USGA and The Golf Channel should also be disgusted for these intentional actions. Someone should be fired and advertising dollars should be pulled.

NBC released a statement that, in part said, "... Regrettably, a portion of the Pledge of Allegiance that was in that feature was edited out. It was not done to upset anyone and we'd like to apologize to those of you who were offended by it."

What did you think would happen? If it was not done to upset anyone, why was it done?

NBC claims it wasn't intentional.

Really? I heard the children say all the other words except those two.

It wasn't an error.

Errors happen by accident. A shortstop doesn't boot a grounder on purpose.

NBC booted this grounder and did so on purpose.
