NBC Cut Terror Victims Tribute Because It Wasn’t ‘Tailored for the U.S. Audience’

NBC has received plenty of criticism for its decision to cut a tribute to victims of terror from the Olympics opening ceremony broadcast in the United States. The half-assed explanation offered, however, is likely to cause even more outrage.

Yesterday, NBC spokesman Greg Hughes offered only this: “Our programming is tailored for the U.S. audience. It’s a tribute to [producer] Danny Boyle that it required so little editing.”

It’s a remarkably tone-deaf response that seems to suggest American audiences would not be interested in the tribute. While many have said the segment specifically honored victims of the British terror attacks on 7/7, it was also a “wall of remembrance for those no longer here to share in the event.”
