NBC News is drawing fire after it chose to air an interview with “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kris Jenner on Tuesday morning, instead of the moment of silence remembering when the first plane hit the World Trade Center.
TV Newser reports that ABC’s “Good Morning America,” “CBS This Morning” and the cable news networks carried the moment. NBC News, however, skipped it in favor of Jenner discussing the upcoming season of her show and her breast implants on “Today.”
TV Newser notes that NBC News’ broadcast in New York City did air the moment of silence (WNBC broke into the show with local coverage). The AP reports that “Today” also showed the commemoration in its broadcast on the West Coast.
