KXRM-TV in Colorado Springs had some major issues with the Cosmos episode Sunday night. There were multiple interruptions by commercials. The station is being accuse of doing it on purpose because of the pro-evolution content.
“In a conservative evangelical town like Colorado Springs, you’re ‘accidentally’ censoring an episode that deals heavily with evolution, climate change and the age of the earth,” wrote user Tristan Schwartz. “You have a shitload to answer for. I don’t believe for one second that this is outside your control. FIRE WHOEVER NEEDS TO BE FIRED.”
OK, ok, lots of people aren’t buying the mistake was unintentional (and I would not be surprised if it was someone messing up on purpose just for kicks. But the episode will be re-aired. Also, if the best you can do is censor someone else’s work because you don’t like it, you LOSE. The science still stands.
