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.

Who really cares about the Kardashians to begin with. Pull some more intersting people off the street for interviews and you'll be way ahead of the game!!!!! Shame-Shame-Shame for this morning coverage......

Forget the Ann Curry disaster (she should NEVER have been given that job to begin with IMO), I am tired of seeing the Al Sharpton commerical on MSNBC. Whoever is in charge over there NEEDS TO LEAVE N-O-W.

Lina, yes we need entertainment sometimes, but not on a day of remberance such as 911. It is 1 day out of a year. NBC could have played Kris Jenner at anytime, but they chose a day of importance to air this stupid woman. MY mother saw those attacks and she is 82yrs old with dementia and she still remembers, why couldnt NBC

NBC has hit an all-time low and not just with the Kris Jenner piece but with a lot of other things they've done that I find reprehensible. First off, they did Ann Curry dead wrong and they know it. You know that Matt Lauer was behind it partially if not completely. They pump out crappy -ass television shows anymore and not a one has more than one persons of color heading them. No wonder NBC is cursed. They do their employees wrong,remember Conan O'Brien anyone? But it all comes back around again doesn't it. What goes around, always comes around. Having said that, I believe that the Kris Jenner piece could've waited for a minute or two for a moment of silence for the victims of 9/11/01. I guess this is why NBC has lost touch with reality altogether. And I'm not speaking of the type of reality we may see on the television either. They used to be great now NBC just freakin sucks.

I live close to Calabasas, CA wher the Kardashians live...while visiting a restaurant on Ventura Blvd. recently, Bruce Kardashian and his wife Kris (I know...Bruce Jenner..)came in and got in a spat with the manager...Kris Kardashian had the arogance and audacity to loudly exhult " Do you know who I am?"...yeah...your the lady whose husband used the left-overs of her fake boobs and had it plastered on his face...who give a crap who you are Kardickian....

I agree with just about all of these comments. I already don't watch the show so didn't know they had hit a new low until this article. They probably think that Kris Jenner will juice up the ratings. Obviously, the American public isn't buying into that notion. 9/11 will always take precident over anything, in my book. It's the single worst disaster caused by evilness in this century because every one of the victims was innocent and the strikes were deliberate, and it happened in a country that is still the symbol of hope and freedom in the world.

Just another nail in the coffin for this sinking show!
FYI - Did anyone besides me notice that Savanah Guthrie doesn't have an upper lip! Everytime that I see her she creeps me out.

Kris Jenner is an egomaniac trying to act as though she is some hot mama.She is horrible. I don't understand why the media flaunts her & acts like everything she does is so wonderful. The Today Show should bring back Ann Curry, get rid of Matt Lauer & Savannah Guthrie and you'll see your rating go up..I won't watch your show anymore because you don't have a clue. Putting a Kardashisn before a tribute for our fallen Americans is another reason your show is yesterday's news. Getting rid of Ann & keeping Matt was not a good move...i now watch GM America..they are a breath of fresh air. I used to love your show.
