NBC: Sorry for omitting 'under God'
Updated Jun 19, 2011 9:27 PM ET
NBC issued an on-air apology Sunday for omitting the words "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance during its coverage of golf's US Open.
The words were edited out of a clip of children reciting the oath -- a move immediately noted by viewers, who took to Twitter and various blogs to voice their anger, the Huffington Post reported.
In a statement during the broadcast, NBC commentator Dan Hicks said, "We began our coverage of this final round just about three hours ago and when we did it was our intent to begin the coverage of this US Open Championship with a feature that captured the patriotism of our national championship being held in our nation's capital for the third time.
"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."
The words "under God" were not in the original pledge from 1892 and were not added until 1954.
I'm sure NBC was well aware that the pledge did not include the phrase, "under God". They say it was not done to upset anyone...WELL THEN, WHY DID THEY DO IT? Agnostics, atheists, etc. must be happy! What about us? We are not happy and I, for one, intend to watch NBC to see who their sponsors are and take out my anger by refusing to use those products. I'm not doing it to offend anyone...and I do not apologize for my beliefs or opinions. AMEN

I posted a comment and have read several other comments about the same problem, but can't see where Blogger is doing anything about it.
I'm not that savvy about looking for solutions, so if anyone has any info or ideas, please let me know.
I know my Following friends are there...I just can't see who you are. : (
