Thanks for the link,not sure why mine wouldn't work as it went directly to letter?? oh well.

The news is all over this, probably because they can embarrass NBC making themselves look good to get better ratings, not because they think NBC did bad... I know I'm so cynical!

I heard about that and thought the same thing, that they did it on purpose and that now that they got caught they just said a sorry and did not mean it.That is one reason I don't watch NBC.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

I am still upset over the US Open and NBC taking "under God" from our Pledge of Allegiance. I can just see BO cheering over the situation.
Again, I say that "apology" is garbage. I do not believe a word of it. The only thing they were sorry about is that so many people caught them on it and complained. One version of their apology stated "under God" was not added to the original pledge until 1954. So what! It was added and it is part of our pledge! This was such a deliberate act. It takes a lot to get me riled, but things like this do it. I love my country and I hate, yes hate, what is happening. We can't do much, but we can do something...complain. And we can pass the news on to others so they can complain. This is our country and I will be d*****if I am going to sit back and allow the likes of the left to continue to try and damage her more.Enough is enough!!

We have to speak everytime, and loudly speak up, that is the only way to make our point. The apology was BS because they thought that as ususal no one would complain, but we have to now, too many years of saying nothing and allowing this to get sol far out of hand.

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. "
Thomas Jefferson

here is what I sent..

I am contacting you to further COMPLAIN about your very LAME apology, regarding editing out UNDER GOD from the broadcast of US Open.

Your editing obviously has angered a lot of people. I take offense as a LOT of other people did, of you edit of the National Anthem. Your apology was lame! Just say you are sorry and it WILL NOT happen again!

This is AMERICA, that is the National Anthem. Do not mess with it!!!!

I read that apology too and was a little taken back that so many people had complained. Good for all of you that did something.

So now we need to complain that their apology was BS and that they new what they were doing when they edited it out! We need to TELL them that is the NATIONAL Anthem the whole thing, not just some parts!!!

Oh please, what a crock. They put out the statement - I won't call it an apology - because they're worried about ratings. Their actions speak louder than their words. You're absolutely right Sandie.

Respect life.

An attitude of gratitude can wipe away bad thoughts anytime.

That is nonsense. If it wasn't done to upset peoeple then why did they do it? They knew just what they were doing. And they knew people would complain, they just didn't know how many. And they really didnlt care. That was not an apology. I do not believe a word they say.

thought this was rather funny.... apparently many have complained and they halfheartedly apologized

Posted: 19 Jun 2011 12:59 PM PDT

* UPDATE, NBC “Apologizes” (Fairly pathetic one I might add - notice what is missing from the “apology?”): The NBC crew (I believe it was Dan Hicks) just announced that “We began our coverage of this final round just about 3 hours ago, and when we did, it was our intent to begin the coverage of this U.S. Open Championship with a feature that captured the patriotism of our national championship being 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 would like to apologize to those of you who were offended by it.”

I saw that and it made me so sad. I often watch the beginning of sports events to hear the national anthem or pledge. I watch many sports, but not into golf or tennis. 2012 can't come too soon!

I am watching the U.S. Open on NBC and noticed when it started they showed a classroom of students saying the Pledge of Allegiance with cut shots of the flag and soldiers. They omitted "under God". They played the kids twice and both times without "under God". Not surprised just ashamed of what the progressives and Godless have done to this country.
