NBC has issued a formal apology to members of Congress for opening its broadcast of the U.S. Open championship with a montage that included children reciting the pledge without the words “under God” and “indivisible.”
In a letter to 108 U.S. lawmakers, Kyle McSlarrow, president of Comcast and NBC Universal, said that the channel’s effort to produce a patriotic piece was undermined by “a serious error in judgment” by a “small group of people” who have been “reprimanded.”
“To be absolutely clear, this was not an ideological decision by the company and it was not discussed with or approved by any senior NBC Universial official,” McSlarrow wrote.
