NBC’s issued an apology to everyone who spent their Father’s Day stewing in anger over the network’s decision to leave out “under God” and “indivisible” from a golf show-related recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. “Regrettably, a portion of the Pledge of Allegiance that was in that feature was edited out” of the U.S. Open, said announcer Dan Hicks. “It was not done to upset anyone, and we’d like to apologize to those of you who were offended by it.”

Thank you for addressing our concerns, Dan Hicks. Thank you so much.
