What do you think?
NBC apologized for editing out the words “under God” during a presentation of the Pledge of Allegiance, by a group of children, at the beginning of the final round of the US Open golf tournament. They claimed it was unintentional and apologized to those who were offended. Ok it’s possible, editing accidents are not uncommon. The question is do you believe them? I for one do not. I believe the only thing they are sorry about is having to do a mea culpa. Had the so called accident edited out all words after “…stands” I would be inclined to give them benefit of the doubt. But that’s not what happened. They edited out two words in ostensibly the middle of the Pledge. That in my mind makes it intentional. There is no other reasonable explanation that is acceptable. Short of boycotting all programming on the station for an extended period of time, exactly what penalty does the network suffer for their blatant immorality? I very seldom, if ever, watch network television, I say that to ask, what penalty do you think nbc should suffer from the public, since there isn’t really anything to fine them for?
