A TV station in one of the following states "accidentally" and verrrry clumsily inserted a news promo into the first episode of Cosmos—right when host Neil deGrasse Tyson was talking about evolution. COINCIDENCE? Probably not. But let's see if you can guess which state it happened in. The answer is after jump (no peeping!)—and as they love to say in TV news, "the answer MAY surprise you!"
If you guessed "Oklahoma"—then you are correct! From Raw Story:
It wasn’t until the last 10 minutes of the show that host Neil deGrasse Tyson hinted at human evolution.
“We are newcomers to the Cosmos,” he explained. “Our own story only begins on the last night of the cosmic year.”
“Three and a half million years ago, our ancestors — your and mine left these traces,” Tyson said, pointing to footprints. “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.”
But for viewers of KOKH-TV in Oklahoma City, that 15 second paragraph was replaced by an awkwardly-inserted commercial for the evening news. The edit was caught on video and uploaded to YouTube by Adam Bates.
Here's that video:
Whoopsy! Or maybe it wasn't a mistake... after all, God does everything for a reason!
