NBC’s ‘Today’ Skips 9/11 Moment Of Silence For Kardashian Interview (Not from The Onion)
TV Newser ^ | September 11, 2012 | Alex Weprin

At 8:46 AM, in New York City and at the White House in Washington DC, there was a moment of silence to remember when the first plane hit the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. In New York, the NYPD, FDNY, Port Authority Police and the families of the victims were present, while in Washington the President and the First Lady led the moment.

The cable networks all carried it, with ABC’s “Good Morning America” and “CBS This Morning” carrying it as well. The only national general news program to not carry the moment of silence was NBC’s ‘Today,” which, in an odd bit of counter-programming, opted to air an interview with “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kris Jenner, who talked about the new season of the reality show, and her breast implants.

After the moment of silence ended, ABC went right to an interview with actor Richad Gere, while CBS went straight into a commercial break.

I’m surprised they kept the charade going for 10 years.

Kris Jenner & Richard Gere - two has-beens who just don’t know it yet.

You couldn’t pay me to watch either of them. I once enjoyed the movie “An Officer and a Gentleman” until I realized who these people actually are in their real lives. I refuse to set foot in a theater to watch anyone these days. I don’t trust them and I certainly don’t want to fund bank accounts for liberals who hate me and my way of life.

NBC, like it’s Communist, Muslim, America Hater, POTUS Barack Hussein “Muslim Brotherhood Adoree” Obama hates the USA and could care less about the innocent people and first responders slaughtered on 9/11 at the NYC World Trade Center buildings!!! Vote for Oama and vote to destroy the United States of America..

But....but....but....breast implants help build self-esteem, therefore they are SO much more newsworthy than the blowing up of a couple stupid buildings eleven years ago....

It’s like living in the twilight zone...God and Israel get booed, loudly, three times at a Democrat National Convention, a major TV news network doesn’t even ACKNOWLEDGE 9/11 with just a small moment of silence to remember our slain countrymen..

The media totally ignored the 40th anniversary of Obama’s terrorist pal Bill Ayers’ bombing of the Pentagon in 1972 (Barry claimed was the 1960s when he was only 8 wears owld).

With crap like this flowing out of America’s televisions, it’s no wonder Idiocracy is here. I’d like to see a study of comparative IQ tests on random subjects, with tests administered before and after watching one hour of NBC garbage.

When they fired Ann Curry I swore I’d never watch that show again. It used to be good, now it seems that is run by idiots.

I am going to put this on my protest signs and on sides of my truck!

The press is the enemy of our Republic. And I read somewhere that nearly all the press people pay NO income taxes, or they are cheating on their income taxes. PRESS PEOPLE ===PAY YOUR TAXES ! You will be turned in!
