Oklahoma City Fox affiliate “accidentally” cut evolution out of “Cosmos” broadcast

An Oklahoma City FOX affiliate cut 15 seconds from the broadcast of Cosmos with Neil deGrasse Tyson on Sunday night when an ‘operator error’ interrupted it with a local news promotion.

Posted on the station’s Twitter feed was this explanation: “Sunday, during Cosmos, a local news promo was aired over a portion of COSMOS content. This was an operator error & we regret the error.”

The 15 seconds that were cut were the only part of the series that mentions human evolution:

“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 stood on two feet, our eyes were no longer fixated on the ground. Now we were free to look up, and wonder.”
