AT&T apologizes for censoring Pearl Jam lyrics

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - AT&T Inc said on Thursday a company it hired to handle the cybercast of a live concert by U.S. rock band Pearl Jam erroneously omitted lyrics criticizing U.S. President George Bush that were in a song performed by the band.
"Those lyrics in no way, shape or form, are something that should have been edited," AT&T spokesman Michael Coe said.
The censored lyrics, "George Bush, leave this world alone" and "George Bush, find yourself another home," were sung to Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall" into which Pearl Jam segued while performing "Daughter."
