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?!?
“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?
