NBC censors British Olympic tribute to victims of savage, Muslim 7/7 terrorist attack

July 29, 2012, 2:23 pm


NBC, in its continuing and infinite politically-correct madness, has censored a British Olympic tribute to victims of the savage attack wrought against Londoners by Muslim terrorists on July 7, 2005. 52 innocent Brits were murdered and more than 770 injured. So NBC decided for its viewers that such an atrocity’s commemoration was not worthy of coverage for us “dumb Americans?” This is not the first time NBC has edited/censored reality.

The network sprayed race-card gasoline when it creatively edited the transcripts of the 911 call regarding the death of Trayvon Martin. It apologized for Democrats losing the House on 2010. An MSNBC report, “Tunisia’s Islamists Seek to Reassure Secularists,” tried to put lipstick on the Arab Spring pig by optimistically double-speaking about how Islamists, “said they would share power and would not try to push through radical measures” (and angels will fly out me ars).

At least USA Today, the top newspaper in the United States, with a circulation of 2,528,437, boldly criticized NBC’s foolish travesty:

Which is more likely to encourage U.S. viewers to stick around for your feel-good TV show: chit-chat between mega-celebs Ryan Seacrest and Michael Phelps or what some English people saw as a tribute to victims of a terrorist attack in London that happened seven years ago?

NBC, not surprisingly, chose Seacrest-Phelps during its coverage of the London Olympic opening ceremony Friday in prime time.

Get used to stuff like this. You might see something similar on NBC on any given night of the London Games.

Actually, “coverage” might not be the best term to describe NBC’s prime-time Olympic broadcast. NBC is trying to sell the Games that cost $1.18 billion in U.S. TV rights fees — and hundreds of millions more to promote and produce.

So when it came time in the opening ceremony for something that has been widely interpreted as a tribute to the 52 victims of terrorist attacks in London in 2005, it’s not shocking NBC didn’t see lingering on that as helping its overall marketing effort. When asked why NBC didn’t show the memorial, NBC spokesman Greg Hughes on Saturday said only that “our programming is tailored for the U.S. audience. It’s a tribute to (opening ceremony producer) Danny Boyle that it required so little editing.” …

Please contact NBC and tell them that we don’t need them editing, censoring, or rearranging the news for us: nbcsportshelp@nbcuni.com.

    You’re right that it is censorship, but being politically correct is not their logic.
    Green is their bottom line. The somber tone and profound nature of both the modern dance and the hymn were too spiritually charged…It simply runs contrary to their limited scope of what is commercially viable….

    You’ve got a good point. There’s a reason profit is called “the bottom line” and we use it in everyday parlance to describe the real reason for doing something. In this case, the reason probably was NBC’s greed and, as you said, “their limited scope of what is commercially viable.”

    I do consider all of the ideas you have introduced in your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for newbies. May you please prolong them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
