Oklahoma news channel cuts evolution out of ‘Cosmos’
The show cuts out abruptly, and segues to a preview of a segment about a teen bow-hunting phenom.
According to Raw Story, one Fox affiliate in Oklahoma City edited 15 seconds from Sunday’s broadcast, during which Cosmos’ host, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, discusses human evolution. Here’s part of what they cut out:
“Three and a half million years ago, our ancestors — yours and mine — left these traces. We stood up and parted ways from them. Once we were standing on two feet, our eyes were no longer fixated on the ground. Now, we were free to look up and wonder.”
Viewer Adam Bates caught the edit, and uploaded the version to YouTube. It cuts off very abruptly at the beginning of Tyson’s speech, and segues not to breaking news, but to a preview of a segment about a teen bow-hunting phenom.
