One Network Skipped the 9/11 Moment of Silence for Kardashian Interview LA Times
One network among the top broadcasters and the cable news channels skipped the moment of silence observed in New York City and Washington to honor those who died on Sept. 11, 2001. NBC opted instead to air an interview with Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner, reports the Los Angeles Times' Show Tracker.
While CBS, ABC and the cable news networks covered the moment at 8:46 a.m., "Today" aired an interview with co-host Savannah Guthrie and Jenner, who spoke about breast-implant surgery, the story says.
While the networks covered President Barack Obama and the first lady walking in silence past soldiers, Jenner also discussed her reality show on E!, the piece adds.
WNBC-TV in New York interrupted the "Today" broadcast to air locally produced coverage of the 9/11 event, although NBC didn't do so.
