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.”

Dancing With Palestinians

I grew up in Israel and served as an IDF officer. It took me years to realize that we had been brought up on lies, myths and propaganda and that Palestinians are no different from native Americans, blacks in S. Africa and other indigenous populations who were abused and dispossessed by European colonialism. Demolishing the Zionist myths and propaganda is the first step towards de-constructing the exclusionary colonial state and achieving historic justice and lasting peace.
