NBC Issues Apology For Omitting God From Pledge Of Allegiance Video

NBC apologized Sunday for removing the words “Under God” from a reading of the Pledge of Allegiance during an intro video prior to the U.S. Open Golf Championship Sunday.

The network skipped over the phase twice and issued the following apology on air:

“We began our coverage of this final round just about three hours ago. When we did, it was our intent to begin our coverage of this US Open championship with a feature that captured the patriotism of our national championship, 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.”
