NBC Ignores 9/11 Moment of Silence in Favor of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' Interview
Today marked the 11th anniversary of the horrific attacks on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, as well as the heroic and selfless actions of Flight 93.
Hard to believe, isn’t it? So many of us can still remember exactly where we were when we heard the news, or first saw the terrible destruction being broadcast. Even after more than a decade, the images are still fresh in so many of our minds, and so many of us around the country are still trying to recover from the loss of family members, or friends.
President Obama and his wife, Michelle, as well as most major television networks who tuned in to watch the two, observed a moment of silence at 8:46 this morning, commemorating the moment when the first plane slammed into the north tower of the World Trade Center and began a tragic mark on our history.
One major network, however, either disregarded the national moment of silence, or oops, clean forgot about it.
NBC continued happily on with its “TODAY” program, plowing through the moment when America was bowing its head and mourning. But it was probably something super important, right?
Oh wait, nope. It was just more of Kris Jenner, on the show to promote her reality show “Keeping Up with The Kardashians” and talk about her new fake boobs.
The major network is on a role lately, having most recently flubbed the closing ceremony of the Olympics. But failing to observe 9/11 in favor of fame-whore Jenner? That rubs the wrong way.
Whether an innocent mistake on the part of the network, or a blatant ratings-grab, badly done, NBC. Badly done.
