"Never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence."
NBC editing out “Under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance twice during their 19 Jun telecast of the U.S. Open is one of those instances where it must have been just a stupid edit by a young low level production assistant because the backlash NBC was going to receive was so obvious Ray Charles could have seen it! Also, I’m not one to automatically attribute sinister motives when there is also a more innocent explanation and I believe Napoleon said it best. Regardless, a public company has a fiduciary responsibility to shareholders not to retain employees this incompetent because of future financial implications resulting from their lack of judgment. Hence, incompetents need to be let go!
