Nbc Cuts Words Under God From Pledge Of Allegiance

In a patriotic, rah-rah-America video that opened NBC's coverage of the U.S. Open Golf Championship, the reading of the Pledge of Allegiance by a group of children in a classroom setting ommitted the phrase "under God." Angry viewers took to their Twitter pages to voice their thoughts. One user even called NBC "scumbugs". Others threatened to boycott the network altogether. An NBC commentator later apologized to viewers for the omission, saying it was "not done to upset anyone."
