NBC Defends Today Show Kardashian Koverage

by at . Comments

At 8:46 this morning, practically all major networks turned their coverage to the moment of silence observed in New York City and Washington, D.C. on behalf of the thousands who died on September 11, 2001.

Except for NBC. It aired an interview with Kris Jenner instead.

What was the program thinking?!?

Kris Jenner on Today Set

“The Today Show dedicated a considerable amount of time to September 11th coverage this morning throughout the entire show,” a spokesperson for NBC News said in a statement to TV Line, defending the network's decision.

And there is truth to that: Today did dedicate time to a special 9/11 package.

However, considering NBC Universal also owns E!, the plugging of Keeping Up With the Kardashians over a national period of mourning doesn't exactly look good.

What do you think of The Today Show interviewing Jenner over taking part in this honoring?

You must be a demon rat. That is this generation's Pearl Harbor. If we forget the past we are doomed to repeat it. And your comment is proof of that. You are indeed a callous individual. We must never forget the Oklahoma bombing, Pearl Harbor, nor the Twin Towers, if we do we become just like you, A COMPLETE TRAITOR TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. YOU SHOULD GO AWAY, GO TO A 3RD WORLD RAT-HOLE BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE YOU BELONG.

I dont think that its KRIS JENNERs fault that they aired the interview with her at the time when everyone else was having something else for 911. She just did an interview. She didnt have anything 2 do with when and what time they aired it.

The Today Show reached an all time low by dissing the American people for ignoring a moment of silence in remembrance of 9/11. Who at that show determined that it would be a good idea to air Kris Jenner to talk about her boobs instead of giving the people of America what they wanted? The lack of respect and poor moral judgment will and has backfired. As for Kris Jenner, she proved that she has no class (once again). I am done with The Today Show and the Kardashians. I would love to see every scheduled guest cancel their appearance in support of 9/11. Maybe then the execs at The Today Show will finally start getting it. BTW, Samantha Guthrie is horrible. Just saying...

My how times have changed.....
A few years back, there was a sense of decency, ethics and morals that were used to govern our actions. If we crossed that line, we actually felt embarrassed about it. Now you have Moma K. sitting there with a big'ol smile on her face being interviewed about her breast implants while one of her daughters is dating a connoisseur of porn who wrote a song about the sex tape Kim made that he liked watching while banging other women. But I guess it's okay now that he's only watching it with Kim...... I'm not particularly upset about NBC not showing 9/11 coverage. I'm upset that they made such a poor choice in guests to interview at that time. ANYTHING and or ANYONE else would have been better.

...I actually agree with both of those last comments...N heres why....#1....America is getting dumber by the day...taken the fact that reality tv has such high ratings....I mean come on people educate yourselves so that this generation HAS A CHANCE!!!...#2...I really dont think that TODAY-sep 11th really affects anyone other than the friends N families of the people who not only lost their lives but also the ones who gave theirs in exchange to save another....NOW Im not saying we shouldnt pay tribute to the fallen....I just dont think people should be wasting their time arguing over something that just isnt with the argument....thats all Im saying.

Take some responsibility Hollywood Gossip . . sites like this have given this ridiculous family WAAY too much importance by constantly running BS stories on them for money and hits . . The dumbing down of America continues when reality tv BS people have ANY importance, much less the importance sites like this give them! The Today Show should be ashamed. It's time for the Kardashians to go away and it starts with sites like this by refusing to run stories on them ad nauseam. Of course it won't happen, sadly.
