Well, they did it again. A few years ago, NBC was roundly criticized for omitting “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance in one of their promotional pieces. Now, they are doing it again. The question is… why?
As reported in The Washington Times, the promotional video for NBC’s new show “Allegiance” uses the Pledge of Allegiance in the background of the clip:
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands. One nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Notice anything missing? The Pledge is used in its entirety except for the words “under God.” Fox News’ Todd Starnes called NBC to find out why they left out “under God” AGAIN, but he received no reply.
It’s not the first time the Peacock Network has dissed a deity.
In 2011 NBC was forced, yes forced, to apologize after they omitted the phrase “one nation under God” from its coverage over the U.S. Open Championship. It happened not once, but twice.
Here is a video of one from NBC’s U.S. Open promos:
As noted in Todd Starnes’ story:
NBC released a statement to the trade publication Broadcasting & Cable and said the decision to eliminate God was “made by a small group of people.”
“This was a bad decision,” NBC stated.
So… if it was a bad decision back then, why are they doing it again now?
Here’s the trailer for NBC’s “Allegiance”:
Did they really think people wouldn’t notice? NBC may have a problem with God, but most people in America do not.
