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 is a Manhattan based station, therefore the fact that they did not pay tribute to the 9/11 moments of silence is quite disrespectful.

Bad call, NBC...not only for not showing respect for 9/11 at 8:46am, but for even interviewing that trashy Kris Jenner period. #TeamGMA #BoycottAllThingsKartrashian
