The Golf Channel had some ironing out to do after pitching their Twitter account with an apparently tongue-in-cheek post August 28. The one liner picked up on the 50th anniversary of the landmark “I Have a Dream” speech by the late Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Tweet your ‘golf’ dream on the 50th anniversary of MLK’s ‘I have a Dream’ speech using: #DreamDay: I have a dream that ________.”
The Golf Channel Tweet, which appeared at 11:40 a.m. ET, was quickly deleted.
That wouldn’t even fly in Chicago.
Did NBC start it?
The Golf Channel’s parent company is NBC News, who posted this tweet a couple of hours earlier:
Dream Day – NBC News – #DreamDay - Martin Luther King, Dream Day, NBC News, I Have a Dream, March on Washington, 50th Anniversary
Maybe the NBC Tweet tapped someone's creativity at the Golf Channel, but the linked line seems to have slipped out of bounds.
August 28 has been called “Dream Day,” marking the anniversary of the late Dr. King’s famous presentation, delivered at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC, on August 28, 1963.
