God Bless Kris Jenner. I know she was just probably just happy to tell her story of her breast augmentation on the national news. I know she probably did not purposely schedule her interview with NBC, during the moment of silence for the 9/11 victims. So, let’s not be upset with Kris Jenner. I mean, who does not want to want to look so chic at her age? I am blaming the Today Show. I mean come on- where does the nonsense end? Please read on of the happenings:
NBC skips 9/11 moment of silence, keeps up with Kardashians

NEW YORK, Sept 11 (Reuters) – For NBC’s “Today” show, keeping up with the Kardashians on Tuesday trumped observing a moment of silence marking the attacks of Sept. 11, an American television news tradition observed by every other U.S. broadcast network.
At 8:46 a.m., ABC, CBS and Fox all aired live silent footage of grim-faced firefighters and somber families from various memorials, marking the minute 11 years ago when the first of two hijacked airplanes struck New York’s Twin Towers.
“The Today show dedicated a considerable amount of time to September 11th coverage this morning throughout the entire show,” spokeswoman Megan Kopf told the site. The program included an extensive segment on a 9/11 survivor.
Returning from a commercial break Tuesday morning, “Today” anchor Savannah Guthrie introduced Jenner at 8:45 a.m. and began a discussion about the celebrity’s breast implant replacement surgery, the run-up to which was featured on one of the show’s episodes.
This is what was happening on NBC- during the 9/11 moment of silence:
This is what should have been happening:
Am I the only full blooded American who feels like they deserve an apology? This was the anniversary of 9/11- the day that remembers when bad people boarded planes & killed innocent Americans- for insane reasons. If not for this day, I would not have been afraid to be alone at my house that night- ALL THE WAY IN MISSISSIPPI . Darryl Worley & Alan Jackson would not have gotten to sing their awesome country songs reminding us of the pain & fear that struck each American in our hearts, that day. We suffered as a nation. We came together & prayed for people we had never heard of before. We mourned for the common good of man. It was a call to repentence. But now, NBC has made a mockery of us & our grief. It’s not Kris Jenner’s fault. And to put Savannah Guthrie in the hot seat for that one. She’s just trying to get started on a good foot with America, why would you give something like this to the new girl? It’s kinda sad, kinda ridiculous, mostly makes me want to have NBC go out & cut their own limb off the peach tree – to bring back in for a good leg striping. However, instead of turning it to the Today Show in the morning, I believe I will be coasting on past to ABC or CBS, who showed respect & dignity. If my grandmother were alive, she would cover her mouth, shake her head & proclaim, “Well, I’ll say.” Which is what she always said when she was in disbelief of someone’s rudeness or unethical actions. Then, she would proceed with something like, “They outta be ashamed of themselves. I know, they was raised better than that.” All I have to say is God have mercy on the Today Show & God Bless America.
