NBC edits Pledge of Allegiance to conform to Obama's version

NBC ran an intro clip to its coverage of the U.S. Open that featured students saying the pledge of allegiance to the flag. Except they edited the words spoken by the students.

Care to guess what was cut?

Sure--and you knew right away, didn't you? "...under God."

It's possible NBC didn't think anyone would notice, and almost certain that they thought that if anyone did notice, they wouldn't care.

Uh, wrong. Switchboard at NBC apparently lit up like a C_____mas tree.

C'mon, says my liberal niece, You can't possibly know that!

Okay, if it didn't then why did on-air commentator Dan Hicks apologize to viewers later in the broadcast?

C'mon, use your intelligence.

Oh, and that apology? Here's what Hicks actually said:
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.
Note that they didn't mention what they'd edited out--that is, what prompted the most unusual apology!

One could easily get the impression that the network was afraid of its liberal viewers' reaction if they knew it was apologizing for having offended believers, since that would be...well, virtually unprecedented.

Can't have the liberal Lying Media acknowledge God in any way, shape or form now, can we?
