    NBC Apologizes for Omitting 'Under God' From Pledge During U.S. Open Broadcast

    NBC Apologizes for Omitting 'Under God' From Pledge During U.S. Open Broadcast - FoxNews.com

    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.
    The actual apology:
    "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."
    Notice anything missing from the apology?

    Wow, they edit one segment and the Fox viewers get all pissy. That is funny.

    Wasn't "under God" edited in the original words to The Pledge?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    It was added in to fight Communism. I still don't see what is missing from the apology.

    I think they should have left it in and offended a lot of people instead. When America has had enough of their draconian gods, they can edit them out in the ballot box. Meantime, I got to support the 1st Amendment and consider lsitening to their bull**** a sacrifice I have to make for my 1st Amendment freedoms.

    It's there station, they can do what they want, no need to apologize. The under God part was added for political reasons anyway so it's not like that part should be treated like a sacred passage.
