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?

This just shows how shallow the American Public is. NBC would not have aired unless they knew that airheads would watch it.

Christian MacTavish, you are one sad, sad little man. Do you feel like a big kid, now that you got your stupid, pointless, irrelevant comment in? Thanks for sharing the fact you are crazy with us.

Unforgivable! Taking Today off my viewing list.

I think this is genius! When people are flipping through stations it is the only thing on. Although I do mourn the events of 9.11.01 my happiest day is always Sept 12.

Sad day made real sad by the most uncaring NBC witch stands for ( No Body Cares )

Unbelievable! TODAY chooses Kris' breast augmentation over respecting 911 victims. They have sunk to a new low.

Because of their programming choices on this, I have made a choice too - I will use the parental control blocking feature to block access to the Today show for 30 days so that even I don't forget and tune it in by mistake. You chose to show a pseudo celebrity discussing her pseudo boobs instead of taking a moment to honor the fallen in the worst attack ever on the American homeland. What were you thinking? And who is in charge there, an adolescent?
