The @TodayShow finds Kris Jenner’s breast implants more important than 9-11

It’s not just downright insensitive, but stupid as well:

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.

Per TV Newser, the local NBC coverage (WNBC in NYC) went to the moment of silence but nationally, people watching the Today Show got this.  BuzzFeed has split screen images of the two other “big three” networks and what they were broadcasting the same time Jenner was being interviewed on the Today Show.

For shame, Today Show.

What were they thinking? Answer: They weren’t. There simply aren’t any credible excuses for this. None.

    This is how trivial the typical fringe media is. On the anniversary of this generation’s Pearl Harbor they see fit to show some self-important vain celebrity’s store-bought ti*ties. The only tie-in to relevance might be the fact that this is prohibited in any of the various Islamic idiocracies around the world.

    Well, if it didn’t happen in the last 13 seconds AND has nothing to do with either Obhammud’s re-election or some Hollyweird boob’s boobs, then of course it’s not worth showing!

    Sad and pathetic.

    The problem is we have a potus who apologizes for us and a large portion of Americans believe we deserved the attacks on 9/11. There is a strong lack of patriotism which explains why the Tea Party patriots are maligned. Celebrities have come out and insisted the Tea Party patriots are racist. It’s a world turned upside down… with a president who dislikes this country and doesn’t try to hide his antipathy.

    How soon is he going to apologize for the ambassador who happened to get in the way of all those rabid dogs in Libya? Not even Bubba would have put up with that crap from two-bit pigs like them.

    (There! I finally got “dogs” and “pigs” into the same paragraph describing Islamists!)
