The Today Show Chooses Kris Jenner Over 9/11 Tribute

by at . Comments

Turns out, the Ann Curry firing debacle was NOT the lowest point to which The Today Show could sink.

At 8:46 a.m. today - the time at which the first place hit the World Trade Center 11 years ago - New York City and Washington, D.C. held a moment of silence in memory of 9/11. All the cable networks, Good Morning America and CBS This Morning all provided coverage of the tribute.

The Today Show aired an interview with Kris Jenner.

Savannah Guthrie and Kris Jenner

In NBC's defense, Jenner touched on her decision to air footage of herself getting breast implants reduced, telling Savanna Guthrie of the filmed procedure and why she's a role model:

It's necessary to "change them after 10 years... it was so important, health-wise, to remind women to check your expiration date because it's a health risk."

Jenner also spoke on the relationship between Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, labeling the rapper as a a "really a great guy" and adding:

"I think they are well suited for each other and I think they are really, really happy and anybody who has kids knows that when your kids are happy, you are happy."

So it's not like Today chose to run meaningless, ratings-grabbing fluff in lieu of honoring the victims of our nation's most horrific tragedy.

I quit the today show months ago. Only NBC news I watch now is Nightly News with Brian Williams. Still think he's a decent anchor.

Shocking that we have to listen to the ramblings of the scarlet woman. NBC and her dishonored the memory of the victims of 9/11. THey really need to fire all of them and start with a new show. THese people have no morals and do not know what they are doing.

I believe someone needs to demote NBC!!!! I have been totally disgusted with them ever since they let Ann go and even refused to watch the Olympics because i was so disgusted with them!! I had not missed a Today show in years thanks to T-Bo but will never again watch NBC or Today Show they should be ashamed of themselves!!!!

I QUIT WATCHING THE TODAY SHOW A LONG TIME AGO. THEY LET THAT WONDERFUL ANN CURRY FALL UNDER THE BUS, BUT THIS TAKES THE CAKE. THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE LOST THEIR LIVES ON 9/11 AND THEY CHOSE TO SHOW SOME WHORE GETTING HER BUCKETS MADE LARGER. THAT IS JUST DISGUSTING,DEPLORABLE, UNCALLED FOR ETC. WHO IN GODS NAME IS THAT KRIS JENNER ANYWAY? WHERE WAS SHE WHEN 9/11 HAPPENED. SORRY BUT I HAVE TO GO VOMIT. THIS IS DOWNRIGHT SICKENING. AND WHERE WAS THE BRAIN OF SAVANAH GUTHERIE, ON BOOBS?

I will never as long as i am breathing watch the Today show after these morons putting this piece of crap on the show today, instead of honoring our "911" victims. I am truly appalled, and disgusted by the Today show. Every year since "911" we have watched dedication ceremonies honoring these heroes, and this is the first year that i have seen nothing. "How sad"........

I thought Today was getting out of the cheap stuff when Katie Couric left to try to get ratings by swinging her chubby legs on prime time news. But they don't seem to want a chance to clean up their act.

I have watched GMA for many years and Today's choice of programming at NBC reinforces my decision. I am sick of the Khardasians...what is it they do anyway? There are Americans out there being kind and contributing members of society...they deserve coverage and most important...all of those who gave their lives on 911. The Today show has truly sunk to new depths....what are you thinking????

For that idiotic Today Show to choose that pimping HO BAG Kris Jenner over the 9/11 Tribute is such a disrespectful slap in the face!!!!! And the decline of The Today Show continues..........
